					               Below is a partial list of individuals, labor organizations representing
             thousands of workers, and other groups which have signed the following
                              statement to free Mumia Abu-Jamal:

                     PARTISAN DEFENSE COMMITTEE
                CAMPAIGN TO FREE MUMIA ABU-JAMAL, NOW!
   I/We demand the immediate freedom of Mumia Abu-Jamal, an innocent man.
  Mumia Abu-Jamal’s case is now at a critical juncture. On 27 March 2008 the Third Circuit Court of Appeals
upheld Mumia’s frame-up conviction and ordered a sentencing hearing to reinstate the death penalty or entomb him
for life in prison. Mumia Abu-Jamal must be freed now!
   Mumia Abu-Jamal is an innocent man. A former Black Panther Party spokesman, supporter of the MOVE organ-
ization and award-winning journalist known as the “voice of the voiceless,” Mumia was framed up in 1982 on
false charges of killing a Philadelphia police officer. Sentenced to death based on his political history and beliefs,
Mumia has spent 26 years on death row for a crime he did not commit. The frame-up of Mumia Abu-Jamal shows
what the death penalty is all about. It is a legacy of chattel slavery and a barbaric outrage, it is the lynch rope made
legal.
   The case of Mumia Abu-Jamal exemplifies the race and class bias of the U.S. justice system against workers,
black people, the poor and all the oppressed. The notorious trial judge, Albert Sabo was overheard at the time
promising, “I’m going to help them fry the n----r.” Racist jury-rigging, false testimony coerced through police
threats, and prosecutorial cover-up were the basis for Mumia’s conviction. Both the Pennsylvania state courts and
the federal courts have refused to consider the reams of documented evidence that prove Mumia’s innocence.
Foremost is the sworn confession of Arnold Beverly that he, not Mumia, shot and killed the police officer, and
that Mumia had nothing to do with the shooting.
   We stand with the millions around the world—workers, students, death penalty abolitionists, fighters for black
rights and immigrant rights, socialists—who have taken up the fight to free Mumia Abu-Jamal now!
   An injury to one is an injury to all!
   Free Mumia Abu-Jamal now! Abolish the racist death penalty!
The statement which appears above has been modified to reflect the 27 March 2008 decision by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Many of the
people listed below signed the statement prior to the Third Circuit decision.
