No death for Mumia, then for nobody sign now

What's up today?

Reuters says:

"PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - A U.S. federal appeals court on Thursday upheld the murder conviction of black journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal for killing a white policeman in 1981, but said his death sentence may be reviewed by a lower court.

Abu-Jamal, on death row for 26 years, has become a prominent cause for the international anti-death penalty movement.

His supporters, including Amnesty International and South African Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu, say his trial was tainted by racism on the part of the judge and prosecutors."



Who is Mumia?

Wikipedia says:

"Mumia Abu-Jamal (pronounced /muːmiɑː əbuː dʒəˈmɑːl/; born Wesley Cook on April 24, 1954) was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1981 murder of police officer Daniel Faulkner, and is currently a prisoner at State Correctional Institution Greene near Waynesburg, Pennsylvania.

In December 2001, a judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania affirmed his conviction but quashed the original punishment and ordered resentencing. Both Abu-Jamal and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania appealed. The case was orally argued before a three-judge panel in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, Philadelphia on May 17, 2007, and as of February 2008 is pending. His case has received international attention. Supporters and opponents disagree on the appropriateness of the death penalty, whether he is guilty, or whether he received a fair trial and the benefit of due process."



Well, the fight continues: death penalty must be deleted form the face of the earth. So, we don't want death for Mumia today, then for nobody tomorrow.
