Mumia Mustn't Die
On Saturday 14 November, 20 members of the Northern Anarchist Network occupied the Manchester offices of American Express to protest the death penalty on Mumia Abu- Jamal, African American political and environmental activist. Having spent 16 years on death row for the murder of a cop, a crime which he vehemently denies and a crime for which he was tried after numerous beatings, the State of Pennsylvania is once again pressing for his execution. American Express is one of the most prominent representatives of American business in Manchester. The Anarchists, from Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Oldham, Rochdale and elsewhere briefly occupied the premises before being ejected by Manchester's finest. Our demand was for the AmEx staff to fax their head office with details of our action.
Please help by sending a fax to Governor Tom Ridge (00-1-717-783-4429). Express your concerns and demand that Mumia be allowed a new trial, or send letters of support to Mumia Abu- Jamal AM8335, SCI Greene, 1040 East R. Furman Highway, Waynesburg, PA 15370-8090, US.
