Abu Jamal video showing and Fundraiser in Belfast

category antrim | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Monday June 18, 2007 00:14author by gan ainm - Belfast Anarchist Black Cross Report this post to the editors

Belfast ABC are hosting a video showing and fundraiser for Mumia Abu Jamals defence fund

On Saturday June 23rd Belfast ABC will be hosting an evening in support of Mumia Abu Jamal who's fate hangs in the balance amid colliding appeals by both prosecution and defence the outcome of which could see either the quashing of his bogus conviction for the shooting dead of a Philadelphia policeman 26 years ago or indeed the reinstatement of his death penalty which was dropped in 2001.

The event will take place at 9PM in Kellys cellars bar just off castle street and will include the showing of the film 'Mumia Abu Jamal, live from death row', a series of behind glass interviews in which the former Black Panther articulates his feelings on democracy, social justice and his possible execution. Admission is £4.
A portion of the funds raised will also go towards supporting the fantastic efforts of jailhouse lawyer and anarchist life prisoner Harold Thompson who provides free legal advice for his fellow impoverished prisoners despite being denied the most basic materials required for such an important service.
Mumia Abu Jamal will learn if he is to walk free or die within 60 days of his appeal which began on May 17th.

The outcome of the current hearing will see either the reimposing of the death penalty or a retrial, sorry.
