Release from the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five on Mumia Abu-Jamal
Mumia Abu-Jamal needs our help!
Yesterday afternoon Mumia Abu-Jamal had a medical emergency and was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, PA. He needs our immediate help to make sure that his family will be able to visit him NOW.
If you are able to call to numbers in the United States, call these numbers now to demand hospital visitation rights for Mumia’s family:
Secretary, PA Department of Corrections
Schuylkill Medical Center
420 S Jackson St, Pottsville, PA
Superindendent John Kerestes
Prison officials cannot be trusted to provide any transparency on Mumia’s medical emergency. They indeed told us Phil Africa was fine, and he passed away the next day.
