Mumia 30 Years: December 9th 2011 No matter what you do, never miss this great eye-opening speech on the kind of New Jim Crow convict under-caste that forms a clear background to this evil saga: Michelle Alexander at Riverside: New Jim Crow convict under-caste ACT NOW! DO SOMETHING! MUMIA IS IN DANGER!

My Friends of OWS,

My message will have to be brief. But let not this brevity take from it, its strength.

You are the central movement of the hour. You’re raising questions that are in the hearts of millions. Your motto, “We are the 99%,” has been heard, heeded, and responded to by millions. You can be certain that the 1% have heard you clearest of all.

Your work, however, is just beginning. You must deepen, strengthen, and further your work until it truly reaches the 99%, almost all of us: workers, black folk, Latinos and Latinas, LGBTs, immigrants, Asians, artists, all of us, for we are integral parts of the 99%. I salute you and hope fervently that you will grow beyond number.

Though I speak to you today by proxy, I’m confident that you will here my voice soon.

Love, fun and music,

Mumia Abu-Jamal
