A solidarity rally was held in San Franciscoo to demand that public television station KQED allow a program telling the real truth about the frame-up and jailing of journalist and political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal.
According to speakers KQED management are censoring the real story of the frame-up of Mumia and also have been silent about his dangerous health conditions in part because of covid which he contracted in prison.
They are also programming a sympathetic series of programs on Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner who is personally keeping Mumia in prison despite his serious and life
threatening health problems.
While the corporate media including KQED and PBS are spending many hours on the case of Navalny in Russia they have been totally silent about the treatment of Mumia and the dangers to his life.
This action took place on April 20, 2021.
