Mumia's case is just as much a milestone/landmark case as the Rosenberg-Sobell case of 1950-1953, and the Sacco-Vanzetti case of 1920-1927. Both had thousands of worldwide supporters. What they did not have was the Internet to gather signatures instantly from across the United States, a country of 315 million people, and worldwide. Let's go for a MILLION SIGNATURES FOR MUMIA. Sign the petition and post it where you can. MUMIA IS LITERALLY FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE. Treating diabetes is well known to all doctors and can prolong life for decades if done immediately. Then MAKE THOSE PHONE CALLS NOW WITH THE SAME MESSAGE. With your signature and phone calls, you are making your life, Mumia's life, and the struggle matter and you are joining with those who stood up in history's darkest hour, namely in the face of death of leading political figures, who refused cut their politics to suit this year's fashions, as the great writer, Lillian Hellman, told the anti-communist witch hunters, the House Unamerican Activities Committee (HUAC). We are witnessing the US prison system AGAIN, as it has done thousands of times before remind us that this is Nazi USA, with its murder by medical neglect. Sign the petition, make the phone calls to FREE MUMIA!
