Silence of The Laws: A Gag on Mumia and All Prisoners' Constitutional Right to Speak...

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Wed, 10/15/2014
The Pennsylvania Senate will vote this week on House bill HB2533 and Senate bill SB508. The bill was written in response to political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal’s commencement speech at Goddard College, and is a clear attempt to silence Mumia and other prisoners and formerly incarcerated people. We believe that this legislation is not actually an attempt to help victims, but a cynical move by legislators to stop people in prison from speaking out against an unjust system.
