    MAY 13TH AT 30 (***first written commentary from Brother Mumia since the medical attempt on his life!) Column

    MAY 13TH AT 30
    [col. writ. 4/26/15] © ’15 Mumia Abu-Jamal
     Why should we care what happened on May 13th, 1985?
    I mean, seriously, that was 30 years ago, a long time ago, way back when, know what I mean?
    Most people won’t say that – but they think it.
    I’ll tell you why – because what happened then is a harbinger of what’s happening now – all across America.
    I […]

    Of Punks, Predators, & Pigs (Prison Radio trotz seiner eigenen, lebensbedrohlichen Situation) Prison Radio + Text

    Hallo,

    am 10. April 2015 nahm der kämpfende Gefangene Mumia Abu-Jamal zusammen
    mit Prison Radio einen Kommentar über die tödliche Polizeigewalt und den
    Umgang der Medien damit in den USA auf. Er rief aus der Krankenstation
    des SCI Mahanoy Gefängnisses an, wo er derzeit an den Folgen eines
    Zuckerschocks und einer Diabetes ohne adäquate Behandlung durch das
    Gefängnis langsam und schmerzhaft zu Tode gefoltert wird.

    Trotz seiner eigenen, lebensbedrohlichen Situation nimmt […]

    JUSTIFIED’ (Column)

    [col. writ. 3/19/15] © ’15 Mumia Abu-Jamal 
    After the roaring summer of 2014, of angry youth protests that shook over 200 cities on the issue of cop violence and official impunity in the use of state violence, it’s worth our while to look this situation in its face.
     The cops do what cops do because a machinery of protection and whitewashing exists around them. From politicians to […]

    WORDS VS. DEEDS (Column)

    [col. writ. 3/11/15] © ’15 Mumia Abu-Jamal 

    For now, the fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon is perhaps the most famous fraternity in America – for all the wrong reasons.
    It’s also been disbanded from the campus of the University of Oklahoma, at Norman, for all the wrong reasons.
    Despite what you may believe, it’s been disbanded because it got caught on tape, and it embarrassed the university.
    Period.
    Consider this: a […]

    Ferguson USA (2:26) (Prison Radio + Column)

     

    With breathless news reports, the U.S. Dept. of Justice’s Pattern and Practice Study paints a damning picture of a long, cruel and bitter train of maltreatment, mass profiling, police targeting and brutality against Black people in the Missouri town of Ferguson.
    What may be even worse, however, is how the town’s police, judges and political leaders conspired to loot the community, by fining them into […]

    INTERNATIONAL CHUTZPAH (Column + Prison Radio)

    [col. writ. 3/3/15] © ’15 Mumia Abu-Jamal
    The image of Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu presiding over a joint session of Congress was deeply disturbing on many levels.
    First, it was a carefully calculated insult to a sitting [African]-American President, Barack Obama.
    Secondly, it was an act of supreme chutzpah, of a so-called ally lecturing its sponsor on what treaties it should or shouldn’t negotiate and/or sign.
    Third, […]

    Feeding on Fear (Prison Radio + Column, 1:48)

    Every day, every night, through various media, we feed on fear.
    We feast on it.
    It matters not the measure, nor its girth; we devour it, for we cannot get enough.
    ‘So and So is coming!’, ‘ISIS threatens!’ –and we munch our muffins of terror.
    The nation throws billions into government and private security – and ends up more insecure than ever.
    New barriers are built; cameras click on […]

    Ode to Butter (Terrence Williams) (1:58)

    [col. writ. sent 2/19/15 © ’12 Mumia Abu-Jamal
     
    The name on his death warrant is Terrance Williams, but that’s not his name.
    It’s Terry Williams – and some clerk, some prosecutor perhaps, decided to make it “Terrance” —and so it is.
    The man I know, Terry, didn’t even shave when he came to death row at 18 years of age.
    He was a bright, enthusiastic young man who got caught […]

    Frankenstein’s Monster (Prison Radio + Column, 2:25)


     Col. Writ. 2/15/15 © ’15 Mumia Abu-Jamal

     
    Every generation for the past 200 years can vividly picture the Frankenstein monster.
    Tall imposing, usually mute, this creature is alive and not alive; mobile, but haltingly so, that we, the more nimble can escape his perilous embrace.
    Yet, who is the real monster; the one who designed and constructed this being? – or the one who was built?
    One wonders […]

    Obama & Black History Month 2015

     
    [col. writ. 2/8/15] © ’15 Mumia Abu-Jamal
     
    As the Obama Administration winds down, what is its relationship to Black History Month – 2015?
    Of course, the election of an African –American was indeed an historic event, and history books will record this fact.
    But it was also an attempt by the Democratic Party to lock in a constituency that would fuel its political ascendancy for generations.
    In symbol, […]
