Mumia Abu-Jamal needs Medical Care now !

Mumia Abu-Jamal Moved from Prison to Intensive Care, Supporters Seek Access & Answers

From Mumia’s Family and Friends:

« My husband should never have been in prison… He’s innocent and he should be free… It came as a shock to Mumia and to us that he had a diabetic condition »            – Wadiya Jamal (Mumia’s wife)
« Prison Officials are lying. Mumia is going through torture at the hands of Department of Corrections through medical neglect. It is clear to people that they want to kill Mumia. They gave him the wrong medication which made his condition worse. Inmates on the inside who questioned what was happening have been subjected to direct retaliation by the superintendent. They have been moving concerned inmates out of Mumia’s unit in an effort to both bury and keep this critical information from the public. » – Pam Africa (International Concerned Friends & Family of Mumia Abu-Jamal)
“The rules that the prisons have are very arcane. They don’t give out any information about prisoners to their families or anyone else. It’s like you have your hands tied because you don’t know how the prisoner is and you have no way of talking to him. I remember a month ago, Phil Africa exercising in the prison, next thing they know he was in the hospital, they moved him to a hospital and didn’t tell his family where he was, and three days later he was dead. It’s scary — we need to change and we need to discuss and the prison authorities need to be more humane to the families of prisoners.” – Keith Cook (Mumia’s brother)

« Mumia has been complaining about illness for three months, since January. If he had gotten the proper care he needed originally, he would not be in this situation. This crisis illustrates the problem of health care in American prisons as a basic human rights violation. I am personally concerned because Phil Africa of the MOVE organization was rushed to the hospital not long ago in good health and a few days later he was dead. We need to fight to defend Mumia’s life, and that of all prisoners » – Johanna Fernandez (NY Campaign to Bring Mumia Home)
