What Does the Fourth of July REALLY Mean to the 99%?
NOTHING if you are among those who have been brutalized by a racist police force whose job is to protect the fortunes of the 1%
NOTHING if you are among those who have been unjustly incarcerated to protect the system controlled by the 1%
NOTHING if you are among those who have lost their jobs, homes, healthcare, and who have been relegated to third-rate education because the 1% doesn't need you
NOTHING if you are among the scores of political prisoners held in U.S. jails for exposing and fighting against the crimes of the 1%
Twenty-nine years ago, on July 3, 1982, Mumia Abu-Jamal became one of those political prisoners after being sentenced to death in a farce of a trial conducted by agents of the 1%
Last December, after a long struggle, we of the 99% won a major victory when the state gave up trying to murder Mumia.
Nevertheless, although innocent, he is still not free, and is still threatened by racist and fascist prison guards and their jailhouse collaborators.
NOW IS THE TIME TO COME TOGETHER, BUILD ON THAT VICTORY AND PICK UP THE WORK TO FREE MUMIA AND ALL THE OTHER POLITICAL PRISONERS, END THE DEATH PENALTY, AND DISMANTLE THE SYSTEM OF MASS INCARCERATION ("THE NEW JIM CROW")
WHEN: TUESDAY, JULY 3, 2012, 12:00 – 6:00 PM
WHERE: 5th AND MARKET ST., IN FRONT OF THE VISITOR CENTER
