raids.jpgLast May 1st. the Boston May Day Coalition launched two petition campaigns to provide an outlet for people to express their outrage about the way the United States government is dealing with undocumented migrant workers. The injustice, abuse and mistreatment of people who risk their lives to come in search of work to the United States is so clear that it is not even necessary to explain it. While the Senate debates a military fortification of the southern border and unfair and exploitative guest worker programs, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement police continue to raid work places and neighborhoods throughout the country.

Hundreds March for Mumia Abu-Jamal Outside Court Hearing in Philadelphia
070517 Phila Mumia demo.jpgOver 500 people turned out to demonstrate on behalf of Mumia Abu-Jamal outside the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia May 17. Inside the packed courtroom another 200 observed the proceedings in which the justices peppered prosecution and defense lawyers with questions about the deliberate exclusion of blacks in jury selection during Mumia’s 1982 trial, the instructions to the jury on the death sentence, and evidence of judicial bias against Mumia. In court, the prosecution demanded that the death sentence against Jamal be reinstated while defense lawyer Robert Bryan asked for a new trial. Outside, hundreds of demonstrators circling the courthouse chanted over and over, “Brick by brick, wall by wall, We’re gonna free Mumia Abu-Jamal.” While some had illusions that a new trial could be fair, many declared that the entire “justice” system was racist to the core.
