This 2013 video from the USA is called MANUFACTURING GUILT – A Short Film About Mumia Abu-Jamal’s Case.
From Judith Amanthis in England:
This is a crucial appeal to help MUMIA ABU-JAMAL!
He has been imprisoned on death row for a quarter of a century, convicted of a crime he did not commit.
He was framed for the murder of a Philadelphia police officer because of his history of political activism, including membership of the Black Panther Party, and his record as a journalist who was not afraid to speak out for the oppressed.
On Thursday 17 May Mumia‘s lawyers are appealing against his conviction.
This may be Mumia’s LAST CHANCE!
If his appeal fails, it is very likely he will be EXECUTED.
We need to demand his immediate release. That means MOBILISING NOW!
Please come and show your support for Mumia and attend a PROTEST AT THE U.S. EMBASSY.

April 20, 2007
Just an hour ago, Abu-Jamal News (the new news format just hot off the press edited by the equally new outfit “Journalists for Mumia”) was informed by Mumia’s lead attorney Robert R. Bryan that the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia has
1) ruled against the prosecution’s motion that the court recuse itself and
2) given the opposing sides each an extra half hour for their arguments, meaning that both defense and prosecution will have one hour instead of only 30 minutes at the May 17 hearing.
On April 20, 2007, Robert told us via e-mail: “We won on both of my motions [i.e., the defense motion opposing the recusal and the defense motion for more time for arguments at the hearing, MS]. In denying the disqualification of the Third Circuit, the court adopted my argument. Even though I will try to get out more detail over the weekend, you may send out the news.”
This doesn’t tell us yet whether the court’s final decision re Mumia will indeed be just, but it’s great news all the same.
So let’s continue our struggle for life, liberty, and justice for Mumia – and all the many others who are still denied their basic human rights.
With best greetings from AJN,
Hans Bennett & Michael Schiffman J4M (Journalists for Mumia)
