Appeals to Obama's Top Cop Eric Holder Spread Deadly Illusions
Mumia's Life Is On the Line: Mobilize Labor/Black Power to Free Him Now!

The threat to Mumia Abu-Jamal's life is increasingly ominous. His lead 
attorney, Robert Bryan, warns: "There is an escalated effort by the 
authorities to see him die at the hands of the executioner. This is the most 
dangerous time for Mumia since his 1981 arrest." The U.S. Supreme Court has 
turned down Jamal's two appeals. If it were to rule in favor of the 
prosecution's appeal, this would open the way for Pennsylvania governor Ed 
Rendell to issue a third warrant of execution, which he has vowed to do. 
Contrary to the misplaced expectations of many, the Obama administration is 
not about to save Mumia. Around the world, hundreds of thousands have marched 
for this courageous champion of oppressed. Trade unions representing millions 
of members have rallied to the defense of Mumia. It is urgent to expand this 
support into powerful labor/black action, appealing to the integrated union 
movement to join with the black, Latino and immigrant poor to demand that he 
be liberated.
