We invite you to attend a reception immediately prior to the Philadelphia preview of the new movie Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal. This powerful film vividly explains the historical context of Mumia’s arrest and conviction and the truths about Mumia the man, the “long distance revolutionary.”
This reception is to thank and greet the producers of this movie, Stephen Vittoria and Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio, and the film participants, particularly those from Philadelphia–Ramona Africa, Pam Africa, Barbara Easley Cox, Reggie Schell and Linn Washingon. We also honor those courageous witnesses who came forward with evidence of Mumia’s innocence--including Veronica Jones, Dessie Hightower and William Singletary–who said no to the coercive tactics of the state.
December 8 is exactly one year after the Philadelphia DA gave-up its decades-long attempt to have Mumia executed. People who have read Veronica Jones’ memoir or seen a preview of the LDR-the movie, ask what can be done to continue the fight for Mumia’s freedom.
This informal “cheese and wine” reception will be spiced with determination to continue the fight to free Mumia. We need to win a new generation to this cause. We have to raise the volume, increase advocacy and stir public opinion and ignite a new stage of mass activism.Long Distance Revolutionary and Veronica & the Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal are important weapons in that struggle. A year ago Mumia thanked his supporters for winning stage one – the next one is for his freedom!
