Labor's Fight, Free Mumia
Film Justice On Trial - The Case of Munia Abu-Jamal (70 min.) by Big Noise Films (Free event)
There will be a screening of “Justice On Trial.” This 70-minute film details the context of Mumia Abu-Jamal’s case under the racist police regime in Philadelphia in the 1970’s and ‘80s, and describes key evidence of innocence that was never heard in a courtroom. Despite the ongoing threat to his life from unjust incarceration and possible execution, Mumia Abu-Jamal, a working CWA NABET union journalist, supports working people world wide, honors picket lines, and defends victims of racist and imperialist oppression everywhere.
Speakers will answer questions and describe the case, and Jack Heyman (ILWU retired), Karl Fischbacher of the Austria Committee and other labor speakers will discuss labor’s fight back on Mumia’s case.
