After a months-long campaign, and thousands of signed petitions, a protest at the DOC HQ, and many phone calls from around the world, Mumia Abu-Jamal was finally given cataract surgery on his left eye, yesterday morning (Thursday Aug 29) at his outside-prison eye-care physician’s office. At the day-after checkup, his eye doctor said everything turned out well. Mumia marvels at the clarity that is evident already.
He should be getting a second cataract surgery, on his right eye, in about a month.
The power of the people is as clearly evident as Mumia’s eyesight is now. Keep up the pressure! Free Mumia!!
