In a court case that could eventually lead to Mumia’s freedom, Judge Leon Tucker has ordered the District Attorney’s office to present new testimony in reference to Ronald Castille. The hearing will take place Jan. 17.

Gather at 1301 Filbert at 8am. Court begins at 9am. Transportation from NYC is leaving from the Solidarity Center, 147 W. 24th Street, New York, NY 10011 at 5:30 AM (also from Newark, NJ) on January 17th. Call 212.330.8029 or 212.633.6646 for details.

Castille was a Philadelphia DA. Later as a PA Supreme Court judge, he refused to disqualify himself when Mumia's case came before the court despite having been the DA during Mumia's prior appeals. The US Supreme Court has ruled such conduct unconstitutional.

The people’s movement forced the courts to take Abu-Jamal off death row in 2011 but his freedom was not won. Despite his innocence he was re-sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.

The people fought for and won hep C treatment for Mumia but he now suffers from cirrhosis of the liver and continues to suffer pain and severe itching from a skin ailment. Life without parole is still a death sentence for thousands of prisoners, especially when decent health care is routinely denied for people behind bars.

Mumia has been unjustly imprisoned for 36 years. He should be released now.
