free mumia!

after spending almost 30 years on death row for being convicted of murdering a white police officer, prosecutors have revoked mumia-abu-jamal’s death sentence, commuting it to life in prison without the chance of parole.  
jamal, who has always proclaimed his innocence, is a former member of the black panther party for self-defense, a fact that many believe led to his imprisonment for his political worldview.  during his confinement in a windowless cell the size of a small bathroom for the past 3 decades, he has become a symbol of a racist criminal justice system and the global face of the movement to eradicate the death penalty.
although brother mumia may never experience life as a free man, prosecutors falling to the weight of years of legal appeals and grassroots advocacy demonstrates the power of collective work and activism.
