*May 7 event for Mumia at Madison Square Garden a huge success
*NY DAILY NEWS POLL on MUMIA

Yesterday, 6,000 people packed Madison Square Garden for Mumia in a
sold-out rally for Mumia Abu-Jamal--the largest indoor event that has
ever taken place in his support. (A comprehensive press release and
statement will be circulated later today reporting on the very successful
Garden event, but we're sending this email out because your action is
immediately required.)

This event has received a lot of media coverage in New York, including
tv, radio, and print, including the NY dailies and the New York Times
metro section.

THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS IS RUNNING A POLL ON ITS WEB SITE--
www.nydailynews.com--ON WHETHER MUMIA SHOULD GET A NEW
TRIAL.

Go to the "News and Views" section.  One of the top stories is "Big rally
for cop killer Abu-Jamal at Garden."  You should also see the poll on
the left hand column.

You can access the poll for Mumia directly with this link:

(you may need to refresh the page to get the most updated results)

Please post this message widely.  We are not sure how long the poll
will last.  It could only be for today.

Our political intervention in every arena will make the difference in the
battle for public opinion in support of Mumia.  This is the most critical
time period.

Also, please let us know about any national coverage you find.  We
have received coverage from Associated Press, Reuters and local New
York press.
