Labor & Political prisoners: From Hoshino To Mumia
Two Political Prisoners: Fumiaki Hoshino and Mumia Abu Jamal, both framed for a crime they didn’t commit. Both have new evidence showing their innocence, which has been unheard or rejected by courts. Both are framed for political reasons.
Speakers will describe Hoshino and Mumia’s cases. Jack Heyman, International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) retired, and other labor speakers will discuss labor’s fight back on these cases. Video of the longshore port shutdown for Mumia Abu-Jamal will be shown.
