An update on Mumia: Freedom is the only treatment

Mumia Abu-Jamal: Freedom is the only treatment

April 29th, 2021

Dear friends,

We are relieved to share that Mumia Abu-Jamal— journalist, author, and WRL Peace Awardee— is recovering from heart surgery and that, thanks to continued pressure, he was able to speak with his wife Wadiya after the operation.

But, we need to keep the pressure on. Mumia's doctors remain very concerned about his treatment in the prison. He should be released immediately so that he can be properly taken care of.

Please continue to call, email, tweet, fax the people below and let them know that freedom is the only treatment. Details below.

Share this call to action on FacebookTwitterInstagram.


In solidarity,

War Resisters League

Here are the current calls to action for Mumia (ID=AM8335):

1) Mumia must not be shackled to his hospital bed during his recovery.
2) Let Mumia speak with his family at length and regularly.
3) Let Mumia speak directly with his physician Dr. Ricardo Alvarez.
4) Let Mumia speak with his spiritual advisor Dr. Mark Taylor.
5) Provide the appropriate rehabilitation plan for his recovery.
