All Out For Mumia - Taking The Streets For Mumia (Sat., April 24 @ 2pm EDT):
Join us as we take the streets to demand Mumia's Immediate Release on his birthday!!! Hear from Immortal Technique, M1 of Dead Prez, Chairman Fred Hampton Jr, and several of the many local and visiting artists and speakers who love our Freedom Fighter Mumia.
We gather on Mumia's birthday every year. This year is MUCH MORE URGENT! They are attempting to kill him because they know they cannot justify his capture any longer and they will have to release him. His freedom depends on the Love and Power of the People. So let's go!
The State is slowly killing Mumia Abu-Jamal (unfairly convicted and imprisoned since 1981) through medical neglect. He's still recovering from COVID. He has Congestive Heart Failure. He has Cirrhosis of the Liver & a severe skin ailment. They want him to die in prison. WE SAY NO!!!! Join us in Philly this year, as Mumia turns 67 on Saturday, April 24th. Let Mumia know that we will fight against the state's attempt to murder him! In spite of a pandemic, we were thousands in the street against the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Walter Wallace Jr. Come out now to stop the murder of Mumia - before it's too late!
This weekend will feature a series of events that uplift the things he fights for. We will honor other freedom fighters, and remember Walter Wallace Jr, who was murdered just six months ago - as we let the state know, WE WANT MUMIA HOME!

MOVE Press Conference 4/26: Addressing UPenn & Princeton's Theft of Bones of Murdered MOVE Children:
For decades, Penn Museum at University of Pennsylvania unethically held hostage the remains of Delisha Africa and Tree Africa, two children killed in the May 13, 1985 bombing of MOVE by the city of Philadelphia.
They did so without the knowledge and consent of their living family members, who believed they were buried in 1985.
This means that not only were MOVE children abused and mistreated, bombed and burned by the police, now we find out that they have not been allowed to rest in peace.
We demand answers, the return of the remains of Delisha and Tree Africa, and justice for MOVE.
Sign on and share demands at bit.ly/justiceforMOVE.
The demands are:
1-immediate return of remains of Delisha and Tree Africa
2-full investigation of Penn and Princeton’s role in the unethical possession of their remains
3-fire Penn faculty and curator Janet Monge
4-a formal apology from Princeton and Penn
5-reparations for these atrocities
SEE YOU IN THE STREETS ON 4/28 AT PENN MUSEUM!
