I just recieved this message from the Berlin Coalition to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal:
Dear Journalists for Mumia,
yesterday our demonstration to FREE MUMIA ABU-JAMAL took place in Berlin, Germany. In the beginning only 250 people turned out, but near the end infront of the Berlin US-embassy we were almost 400.
The atmosphere was very good from the start. Infront of the embassy people were very loud with slogans such as "FREE MUMIA - FREE MUMIA - FREE MUMIA - NOW" "Brick by brick..." or the german one "Freiheit für Mumia Abu-Jamal - Weg mit der Todesstrafe überall" (which translates "freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal - abolish the death penalty everywhere").
An open letter to the US-Embassador was read out in German and English (watch video above).
There are various articles in german independent media.
From Bern, Switzerland we only found a police report, so far. It seems that several 100 protesters had some fun confusing police while demonstrating for Mumia in front of the US-consulate in Bern and afterwards made an unnounced spontanious march towards the Greek Consulate to protest the Dec. 6th shooting of the 15 year old Alexis by the greek police.
with best greetings,
Berlin Coalition to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal
