Hundreds stand up
for Mumia
On Aug. 18, over 500 supporters of Mumia
held a rally at the busy intersection of Powell
and Market streets and then marched around
Union Square. The demonstrators then decided
to continue the protest by marching on the
San Francisco Chronicle to demand that the
virtual wall of silence in the big business media concerning Mumia’s case be ended.
The demonstration was organized by the
Mobilization to Free Mumia and the International
Action Center. In San Diego the day before,
about 100 people with signs, banners,
and bullhorns gathered on the four corners
of a busy downtown intersection to stand
in solidarity with Mumia.
