Mumia Abu-Jamal is back with his unstoppable commitment to writing and recording his commentaries with Prison Radio. New photos of Mumia – the first taken since 1996 – show that the injustice leveled against him has not diminished his love, courage, and strength. The next big action will be Occupy the Justice Department in Washington, D.C. on April 24, Mumia’s birthday. Free Mumia and ALL political prisoners!

The whole world, not just Armenians, is asking Turkey, "Why?"
I watched your wonderful documentary film on Al-Jazeera TV Channel’s “Witness” programme. It is a powerful statement made with everyday pictures of everyday lives, yet, in its simplicity it challenges and disturbs the mind, unchains deep emotions of empathy with the victim, of sorrow for her silent and constant agony and of repulsion and contempt for the beasts who have committed these atrocities.

Ethical human rights likely to be many children’s and freedom’s last hope in New Zealand.
Professor Paul Hunt, a New Zealander now at Essex University (UK), who was guest speaker at the AGM of the Human Rights Foundation last Wednesday, said that while he personally would like to see children’s rights included in New Zealand’s law that this is unlikely to occur in the near future.
The culture of our parliament and public bodies also certainly seems to devalue the children (see below). In fact, in the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 children are not even entitled to a ‘name’.

It is argued that New Zealand's top-down, bureaucratic neo-liberalism is threatening the Christchurch rebuild, following major earthquakes, and that rather an ethical human rights and development is required.
[Following the tragic earthquakes (including 185 deaths) in Christchurch, New Zealand’s second largest city, the Central Business District and some suburbs require rebuilding which could take between 10 to 20 years. The following argues that top-down, bureaucratic neo-liberalism is threatening the Christchurch rebuild and that rather an ethical human rights and development is required. Further information on this ethical approach, including ethical globalization can be found on our council’s website, www.hrc2001.org.nz ].

Monday, January 30, 2012. Mumia Abu-Jamal is off death row and out of solitary because you called and wrote and faxed and emailed. He is out of the "hole". We did it. This was an international effort, including the delivery of over 5000 petitions, thousands of letters, and the threat of legal action.
The Next Step Is Freedom
By Noelle Hanrahan, Prison Radio
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. Ona Move. Long Live John Africa!
