It took a petition with 5000 signatures, gathered in a few days, to the Philadelphia District Attorney and prison officials to compel the warden at SCI Mahanoy to release Mumia Abu-Jamal from his “worse than death row” solidarity-confinement “hole.” The excuse? Mumia refused to cut off his dreadlocks! While on death row at SCI Greene, Mumia waged the same fight for seven years until his jailors relented. As of Jan. 27 Mumia has been in the General Prison Population.

On Jan. 30, he had his first visit with his wife Wadiya—the first time in 27 years that he was allowed to touch another human being. Here’s Mumia’s message to the freedom movement, sent via Wadiya: “My dear friends, brothers and sisters—I want to thank you for your real hard work and support. I am no longer on death row, no longer in the hole, I’m in population. This is only part one and I thank you all for the work you’ve done. But the struggle is for freedom! From Mumia and Wadiya, Ona Move. Long Live John Africa!”
Write Mumia at: Mumia Abu-Jamal,AM 8335SCI Mahanoy301, Morea Road,Frackville, PA 17932.
