> Action items are below:
>
>
>
> On Dec. 27, Common Pleas Judge Leon Tucker
>
> issued a ruling favorable to Mumia Abu-Jamal,
>
> granting him the right to have reheard appeals
>
> previously denied by Pennsylvania’s Supreme
>
> Court from 1998-2012.
>
>
>
> The only thing that can stand in the way of this
>
> is if Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner caves into
>
> pressure already being exerted by Maureen
>
> Faulkner and the Fraternal Order of Police to
>
> appeal Tucker’s ruling.
>
>
> It is urgent that Krasner hear from Mumia
>
> Abu-Jamal’s supporters urging him to take a
>
> stand against the FOP and allow justice to
>
> proceed.
>
>
>
> Mumia Abu-Jamal has always maintained his
>
> innocence in the 1981 fatal shooting of Philadelphia
>
> police officer Daniel Faulkner. His prosecution was
>
> politically motivated because of his Black Panther
>
> Party membership, his support of the MOVE
>
> organization and as a radical journalist.
>
>
>
> His trial and subsequent PRCA appeals were
>
> racially biased: the prosecution excluded African
>
> Americans from the jury and trial Judge Albert
>
> Sabo declared, “I’m gonna help them fry the n----r.”
>
>
>
> On Dec. 27, Mumia Abu-Jamal won a significant
>
> case before Judge Leon Tucker in a decision
>
> granting him new rights of appeal.
>
>
>
> What you can do:
>
>
>
> 1) Sign the petition below TODAY and share
>
> it widely on Facebook, twitter and email.
>
> These need to get to Krasner ASAP so don’t
>
> delay.
>
>
> https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/krasner-do-right-by-mumia
>
>
>
> 2) Call, email or fax DA Larry Krasner to
>
> do the right thing. Do not stand in the way
>
> of justice. Do not appeal Judge Tucker’s
>
> decision.
>
>
>
> Remind Krasner: As a progressive attorney you
>
> ran for Philadelphia District Attorney on a platform
>
> that included standing “for justice, not just for
>
> convictions.” You promoted reviewing past
>
> convictions and freeing the wrongfully convicted.
>
> In Philadelphia, Abu-Jamal’s frame-up stands out
>
> as the city’s most notorious wrongful conviction.
>
> We call on you to cease defending former
>
> Philadelphia DA and later PA Supreme Court Judge
>
> Ron Castille’s now-discredited claim of impartiality.
>
> It was a people’s movement that paved the way for
>
> your election – not the financial backing of the FOP
>
> or the establishment including judges like Castille.
>
>
>
> Show your supporters that your campaign promises
>
> meant something. That your concern for justice
>
> extends to controversial cases your predecessors held
>
> untouchable. Allow Abu-Jamal to go forward with
>
> re-arguing his appeals, which Judge Tucker states
>
> “would best serve the appearance of justice.”

> Keep writing and calling Krasner – contacts info:
