Philadelphia: July 7: Invitation – Rally & March to Free Mumia


Rally & March to Free Mumia
Friday, July 7 @ 12 pm
Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

On May 30, the Philly DA’s office brushed off a judge’s order to release all records of former DA Ron Castille’s involvement in Mumia’s case.

It follows a landmark Supreme Court decision which ruled judges MUST remove themselves from any case they had a hand in prosecuting. There are 14 prisoners fighting similar appeals. Mumia is one of them.

Ron Castille was Assistant Philly DA during Mumia’s 1982 trial and the city’s DA when his office opposed Abu-Jamal’s appeals in 1988. When Mumia’s case reached the state’s highest court, his lawyers challenged now-Judge Castille to recuse himself but he refused.

Under court order, the Philly DA’s office released a paltry 50 pages of public record. The judge’s latest order gives the DA until July 7th to fully comply.

The people’s movement forced the government to take Mumia off death row. This fight could win his freedom!
