Mumia's Conviction Upheld
Patrick Ryan, one of the organizers of Friends of Mumia of Portland, gave Ruth an update of today’s (04/06/09) U.S. Supreme Court ruling to let Mumia Abu-Jamal’s conviction stand. Also discussed were plans for Portland action, Saturday April 11th, at 10:00 am at Pioneer Square to protest this devastating ruling. For more information call 503/515-9540.
