I sadly write from my prison cell. I am sad that you remain unjustly incarcerated on death row for 25 years. I have read that the Court will be
addressing further arguments on your case, and I pray that you will finally get the justice you
I know how frustrating it is for you, as it is for me, to continue to receive
negative results in the face of the blatant injustices that have been
recognized in our respective cases.
All we have is hope. Hope that finally the right thing will be done and justice
will be done. An injustice against any one of us is an injustice against us
all, and it is essential that we reach the masses so they will force action
before our society is swallowed by the evil forces amongst us.
I applaud those courageous people who have supported us, and, when I feel low
and hopeless, I think of them and what they do for us, and refuse to surrender.
So, I continue to encourage you to stay strong, and to continue the fight until
you are set free.
I want to thank all of you who have dedicated your lives to our freedom. Stay
strong and keep Mumia strong. We must not let anyone forget the great
injustices that Mumia has suffered.
We must keep strong. We must intensify the fight.
We cannot succumb to the forces in society who seek to keep us quiet and who
seek to hide the blatant injustices which keep us penned like animals.
If we are able to unify the masses and stop the execution of Mumia Abu-Jamal,
we are not only saving the life of the man who speaks for those who are not
often heard and whose stories are rarely told, but you are saving all of us who
remain unjustly behind bars, saving us from the depths of hopelessness.
Free Mumia Abu Jamal!
