In celebration of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal’s 61st birthday, FIST calls for all those who oppose the injustice system which lets racist police who kill free and locks up community leaders to rally outside the jail in downtown Rockford at 1pm on Friday, April 24. Recently, Mumia has been facing a dire health crisis due to the prison’s purposeful ignoring of his medical needs. It has been their plan to murder this powerful leader since the day they locked him up and it has been the support of the people which have kept him alive to this day.
Come support this people’s hero and learn more about who he is and what his situation shows about the racist nature of the police and prison apparatus. This page will be updated as it gets closer to Friday with more details and works by Mumia.
