    Judicial Fury (Prison Radio + Column)


    © ’16 Mumia Abu-Jamal [2/10/16]

    Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court, in its Montgomery v. Louisiana decision, ruled that its earlier 2012 ruling in the Miller v. Alabama case, (limiting life sentences when it came to juvenile defendants) was indeed retroactive and thus applied to all under the age of 18 when their crimes were committed.
     At least four states (Michigan, Minnesota, Florida and Pennsylvania) determined that […]

    The MOVE Sisters: Freedom Now (Prison Radio + Column)


    © ’16 Mumia Abu-Jamal [1/19/16]
     It’s a fact that the U.S. is an Ahistorical society. If we go more than 20 minutes down time’s road, most Americans will have forgotten all; in a few weeks; a month?
    Forget it.
    Americans long for the new, best thing. And truth be told, what passes for history these days are usually lies. Y’know, about freedom-loving ‘Founding Fathers’, and so forth. […]

    Flint: Water Wars Against the Poor (Prison Radio + Column)

    FLINT: Water War against the Poor
    © ’16 Mumia Abu-Jamal [1/20/16]
    If ever one wondered about the efficacy of a state government agency imposing officials on local governments, Flint, Michigan has answered that question forever.
    In April, 2014, the state-appointed emergency manager, in order to save money, ordered that the city’s water source be changed from Lake Huron to the notoriously polluted Flint River.
     
    The switch unleashed a […]

    Flint: Crimes of Capital (3:34) Mumia Abu-Jamal (Prison Radio + Column)

    FLINT: Crimes of Capital
    From the beginning of human communal time, people built cities adjacent to rivers, for water, fresh water, was the source of life.
    Cairo (and before it grew into Cairo, Fustat), relied on the Nile; London (and before that, the Roman colonial city of Londinium) was built upon the banks of the Thames; Paris (originally known as Par-Isis, or the House of Isis) […]

    MLK Enemy of the State (Prison Radio + Column)


    ©’16 Mumia Abu-Jamal [1/15/16]
    The name, Martin Luther King, Jr., has become an American talisman. Politicians, who have spent their entire careers ignoring or attacking the lives, rights or interests of African-Americans, erupt in praise of King, some even using choice quotes to support their positions, as if King would’ve supported any of them.
    The truth is Martin Luther King was targeted by the U.S. government; […]

    Free Reverend Pinkney!

    © ’16 Mumia Abu-Jamal [1/10/16]

    Reverend Edward Pinkney is the kind of preacher that Martin Luther King would have admired.
    Rather than build a mansion and live like a prince, Pinkney has, for years, advocated for his community, fighting for water rights, fair elections and social justice for the people of Benton Harbor, Michigan.
    Because of his political activities, he’s been targeted by the government, tried by the […]

    The Genius of Huey P. Newton

    .
    To those of us who were alive – and sentient, the name Huey P. Newton evokes an era of mass resistance, of Black popular protest and of the rise of revolutionary organizations across the land.
    To those of subsequent eras, youth in their 20s, the name is largely unknown, as is the name of its greatest creation: The Black Panther Party.
    To those […]

    Boorish and Boring (Column)

     © ’15 Mumia Abu-Jamal [12/20/15]
     
    Watching political debates is not my thing.
    First of all, they’re hardly really debates; they are, more often than not, a series of sound-bites; often, of promises that both speakers and listeners know won’t be kept.
     They remind me of the classic Peanuts comics, where Charlie Brown runs at a football to kick it, and Lucy promises to hold the ball. (We all […]

    Wie Gehts, Meinen Freunden de Deutschland:

    What is the state of play in the USA today?
    We are witnessing here, as you are there, the growing crisis in capitalism, as social forces fight for […]

    Conference of the Herds (Column)

    © ’15 Mumia Abu-Jamal [12/17/15]

    I confess to not watching the entire presidential ‘debate’. By 20 minutes, I could stand no more.
     I saw nothing more than a pack of dogs, yelping fear, hatred, ignorance and enmity at the world around them.
    They bayed at the moon, a chaotic chorus of blood; barking, “War!”, “death!”, “bombs!”, “kill!”
     Grrrrr…..
     It was as astonishing as it was ugly.
    There were no words; there […]
