We would like to send our warmest revolutionary greetings and solidarity to you all on behalf of The Jericho Movement
and all political prisoners and prisoners of war confined within the prison system of the United States.
From Marily Buck, North American Anti-Imperialist political prisoner to Dr. Mutulu Shakur of the New Afrikan
Independence Movement, from Leonard Peltier of the American Indian Movement to Oscar Lopez-Rivera of the Puerto
Rican Independence Movement, from Herman Bell of the Black Liberation Movement to Larry Giddings,
Anti-Authoritarian Political Prisoner, all of the political prisoners throw their support firmly behind the call for a new trial
and freedom for Mumia Abu Jamal and the end to the death penalty.
Most of the political prisoners jailed in the United States have been in prison over 15 years, some over 30 years,
sometimes under desperate and deplorable conditions. One of the political prisoners, Albert Nuh Washington, has cancer
of the liver and has only a few months more to live, but despite this they/we are firmly believe that the case of Mumia Abu
Jamal is a pivotal case in the struggle for freedom that is going on inside the United States and around the world.
The forces of repression has taken a stand to execute Mumia Abu Jamal despite the fact that there is overwhelming
evidence of his innocence. They do this because they want to destroy the people's will to struggle and think that by
executing Mumia that we will stop, but they're wrong. They're wrong on two counts:
- We will not allow them to execute Mumia Abu Jamal and stop the death penalty
- We will continue to fight until victory is assured.
On behalf of the Jericho Movement and all US held political prisoners, we say: "All Power to the People" and Free Mumia
and All Political Prisoners.
