"The Mehserle Trial" , from Mumia Abu-Jamal July 10, 2010

   The manslaughter verdict returned against former BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) cop, Johannes Mehserle, for the videotaped murder of Oscar Grant, sent hundreds of protesters back into the hot streets of Oakland, California, Grant's hometown.

   The corporate media scratched its collective head, essentially asking 'Why protest when the guy was convicted?"

   The protesters knew, however, that the court system bent heaven and earth to return the lightest verdict possible; involuntary manslaughter' and that Mehserle faces a possible sentence of probation to a maximum of 4 years in prison.

   They knew that Mehserle got a non black jury, hundreds of miles from Oakland.

   They knew that each of those hundreds could've been Oscar Grant, unarmed, shot to death on tape and the same thing would've happened.

   Of course, the corporate media doesn't get it.

DOWNLOAD of FBI's File on Mumia Abu-Jamal- Racism Is At the Core of an Unjust System ~message from London

For the first time in the history of Mumia's case, we now have electronic access to his much redacted 900 page FBI file which was all collected several years BEFORE there was any question of a crime or of killing a cop. It is a record of the targeting of Mumia since the time he was 14 years old.

Great Film Centered around Mumia Abu-Jamal- FRIDAY, July 3rd, Eureka

 

Come see this film at PARC's new location!

 

"In Prison My Whole Life"  is a well done documentary inspired by a man who was born on the day that Mumia Abu-Jamal was arrested.  Mumia has been a political prisoner, on death row, for over 27 years, now.

The filmmaker does a great job talking with people about (researching) racial injustice and the Prison Industrial Complex and giving a thorough run down of the frame-up that has had Mumia on death row since 1981.

 
Mumia is facing execution and we can't let it happen!!
