The Labor Action Committee to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal is proud to present Valerie Jones, author of "Veronica and the Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal," and Rachel Wolkenstein, a lawyer for Mumia, and a long-term fighter for his freedom.
Veronica's new book details Mumia's frame-Up. "Veronica and the Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, as told to her sister Valerie Jones," is the posthumous memoir of a key witness in the fraudulent conviction of anti-racist activist and police critic, Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Veronica Jones was to have been a defense witness at Mumia's trial, saying she saw two men flee the scene. Valerie Jones describes the brutal intimidation and barbaric humiliation her sister Veronica was forced to undergo by police detectives trying to coerce Veronica into lying on the stand and deny what she saw. This was critical to Mumia's conviction. The courts ignored Veronica's later attempts to set the record straight by courageously telling the truth. Valerie Jones presents this gripping and sometimes painful story of her sister, Veronica Jones.
