Short Description: 
An Update on Mumia Abu-Jamal
Ruth Kovacs interviews Noelle Hanrahan from Prison Radio about Mumia Abu-Jamal and legislation (HB2533) called the "Revictimization Relief Act" that would allow victims, District Attorneys, and the Attorney General to sue people who have been convicted of "personal injury" crimes for speaking out publicly if it causes the victim of the crime "mental anguish."  The bill was written in response to political prisoner Mumia's commencement speech at Goddard College, and is a clear attempt to silence Mumia and other prisoners and formerly incarcerated people.
