Street press conference notes new book & positive developments for Mumia's freedom
“Truth above Tyranny” was the theme of a news conference held today in Philadelphia by a coalition of organizations demanding freedom for
U. S. political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal.

The coalition, which included Mobilization4Mumia, Campaign to Bring Mumia Home, International Concerned Friends & Family of Mumia Abu-Jamal and MOVE, marked the day Abu-Jamal was shot and wrongly arrested for the murder of a Philadelphia police officer. The gathering also marked the release of his new book Perfecting Tyranny.

Despite snow flurries, dozens of supporters heard Abu-Jamal’s wife of 39 years, Wadiya; publisher Noelle Hanrahan, director of Prison Radio; MOVE members Janet and Janine Africa; Robert Saleem Holbrook, executive director, Abolitionists Law Firm; Ted Kelly, of the Prisoners Solidarity Committee of Workers World Party; Pam Africa of the Uncompromising International Concerned Family and Friends Of Mumia Abu-Jamal and others call for Mumia's release.
