Mumia Abu-Jamal: The Quest for Abolition

© 2023 by Mumia Abu-Jamal How do we arrive at this place we call abolition? What are the roads to such a destination?  We arrive from the almost-lost lessons of history, shaped by generations of ancestors who struggled their whole lives for that rare breath of freedom and yearned with all their hearts that we, their progeny, would one day breathe free air. For abolition stems from the long, hard struggle against [...]

War Against the Fleas

© 2023 by Mumia Abu-Jamal Perhaps Israel’s most respected statesman, former diplomat, Abba Eban, once said, “Nobody does Israel any service by proclaiming its right to exist.” That was then, in 1981.

Red Horizons

by Mumia Abu-Jamal https://www.prisonradio.org/commentary/red-horizons/ The images were startling: New York City, summer 2023. Its horizon lit by a ruby-red sky, as sun light tries to shine through smoke and ash from Canada’s roaring fire season.   First came the shock that Canada had a “fire season.” I thought it had only four seasons. Second was learning that Canada had over four hundred fires, raging on its eastern forest shores.   Then the [...]

“Cracks in the Abode of Death”

“Cracks in the Abode of Death” by Mumia Abu-Jamal https://www.prisonradio.org/commentary/cracks-in-the-abode-of-death/ Few people really know the nature of death rows.
