Very little has been written about the trial of Mumia Abu-Jamal’s brother, Billy Cook, who was charged with aggravated assault, stemming from that fateful Dec. 9, 1981 morning.  In this new essay by German author Michael Schiffmann, the DA’s flimsy case against Abu-Jamal is even further exposed. 

 

This new article is presented by “Journalists for Mumia Abu-Jamal” to publicize and raise money for printing the next issue of our newspaper, “Abu-Jamal News.”  Our first issue was released in April, just weeks prior to Abu-Jamal’s crucial May 17 oral arguments before the federal Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

The week of the oral arguments, Journalists for Mumia unveiled explosive new crime scene photos (never before published in the US) that prove police manipulation of evidence at the scene.  The photos were printed on thousands of large posters and posted for viewing on our new website: Abu-Jamal-News.com.

 

While we are still trying to make our money back from these posters, we are now actively fundraising for the printing of our second issue.  The 10,000 copies of our first issue were depleted far too quickly, and we are now hoping to print 30,000 copies of issue #2.  Every little bit helps, so please consider donating money to help with the printing costs.  All labor is donated, meaning that every penny will go towards printing costs, and a fraction going towards postage for our distribution.
