Ruling Against Mumia Shows: No Justice in the Capitalist Courts
30 Mar 2008
ig-photo.jpgOn March 27, the U.S. appeals court in Philadelphia reaffirmed the frame-up conviction of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the former Black Panther Party spokesman and world-renowned radical journalist who has been locked up on Pennsylvania’s death row for more than a quarter century. After previously rejecting Mumia’s request to present evidence of his innocence, as well as a host of issues showing that he was railroaded by a racist court, the Court turned down Mumia’s request for a new trial. It upheld the 2001 ruling by a federal district judge that ordered a new hearing on the sentence, but limited the “choice” to the living hell of life imprisonment without parole ... or execution. Mumia is innocent. He was declared guilty and sentenced to die because of his revolutionary politics and because for years he had been a thorn in the side of the racist rulers of the misnamed “city of brotherly love.” Around the world, millions have come out in defense of Jamal. This latest ruling, like all those that preceded it, shows that the exploited and oppressed must have no faith in the racist injustice system. We call on the workers movement to mobilize its power to free Mumia now!

Blue Cross has unhealthful relationship with 'No Place for Hate'
29 Mar 2008
Modified: 03:37:17 PM
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts is misusing subscribers' precious health care dollars, and violating human rights norms, by funding Massachusetts municipalities' "No Place for Hate" program. The latter is an alleged anti-bias program which was initiated, and is sponsored, by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The ADL, which claims to be a human rights organization, denies the Armenian genocide and opposes US affirmation of that genocide. The ADL's genocide denial has for several months been a hot national and international topic.
