Free Mumia Abu-Jamal!

On March 3, Mumia Abu-Jamal tested positive for COVID-19 while imprisoned at State Correctional Institution–Mahoney. Abu-Jamal is a journalist and activist who was wrongfully accused and convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer in 1982. [1] His case demonstrates the cruel racism and injustice that is at the heart of the US justice system.

In his battle with the coronavirus, he has lost almost thirty pounds in less than two weeks. His skin is cracked, bloodied, and ruptured from Hepatitis C. He also suffers from congestive heart failure. Yet he is being refused medical treatment—a stark reminder of the inhumane treatment and living conditions of prisoners in the United States.

His doctor Ricardo Alvarez said that, “Freedom is the only treatment.” Socialist Revolution wholeheartedly supports the call to free Mumia Abu-Jamal! [2]
