It really doesn't matter if Mumia Abu-Jamal is "innocent" or not. He
should be defended and supported against the law machine of the capitalist
state. What does guilty or innocent mean divorced from the class question?
Some racist cop is no longer with us, so what? He is no longer stopping
young black and latino men just because of who they are. They don't have
to lie face down in the street. He is not beating and arresting strikers.
A pity he won't be able to shoot or stomp another child of the
working-class. Too damn bad. All police are the enemy of the working
class. They are the shock-troops of the capitalist class. When you start
thinking about guilt or innocence think about the civil rights workers
being clubbed, think about all the workers beaten and gassed trying to form
unions, think about all the students beaten and jailed because of their
opposition to the war, think about Fred Hampton-murdered as he slept, along
with Mark Clark. Is Mumia Abu-Jamal guilty or innocent? Please!!!!!
If the misery of our poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our
institutions, great is our sin. -CHARLES DARWIN.
