Stand with Mumia Abu-Jamal and Troy Davis!!

Tuesday, December 9, 2008: 4:30 to 5:30pm, Federal Courthouse, 7th and Mission Streets, San Francisco (Civic Center Bart Station)

This December 9th is an historic date. It marks the 27th anniversary of the attempted murder of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the killing of Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, on December 9, 1981, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania -- events which led to the framing of Mumia, who has been unjustly incarcerated ever since. For 27 years, the courts, police and politicians have been trying to execute Mumia, who is on Death Row for his politics, courage and wisdom, not because of any crime he committed.

This December 9 also marks an important date and a step towards justice for another innocent person incarcerated on Death Row - Troy Davis. Troy was set to be executed when an incredible international campaign was mounted in his defense, forcing the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit to agree to hear oral arguments whether Troy can be executed even if he can present evidence proving his innocence. Troy has been on Death Row in Georgia for 17 years, framed for the murder of a police officer. There are many legal and factual similarities in the cases Mumia and Troy, both of whom are not only fighting for their lives but to defend the constitutional rights of everyone

Join with the Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal and many other organizations and individuals to:

Demand Justice and Freedom for Mumia and Troy!
End the Death Penalty!
Stop Police Brutality!

[Note: The anti-AIPAC protest that begins at 5 pm and runs till 7 pm is only about 1/2 mile away. So stand, as Mumia does, for the Palestinian people and try to make both demos!]

There is no way most of us can get to this important demonstration on a weekday. We should have all demonstrations for prisoners on the weekends so we can maximize turnout. It is more important to have people at these events than to picket a courthouse so the Civic Center in Oakland or San Francisco would be a much better location, and on the weekend. The fact that December 9 is an anniversary does not help. We need the warm bodies at these demonstrations. This is not like the AIPAC event where an event is taking place indoors that is being picketed. This is simply a rally to build the defense for these prisoners.
The U.S. government's pursuit of the death penalty contravenes U.N. safeguard's that prohibit the execution of anyone whose guilt is not based on 'clear and convincing evidence leaving no room for an alternative explanation'.

I would like to appeal to lawmakers' connected with the death penalty to analyse and review all cases where the U.N. legislation's authority permits.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
