================

On April 19 there is a mass DC neo-Nazi rally for the NSM (National
Socialist Movement) in "commemoration" of both Hitler's birthday and the
Oklahoma City bombing. The Philadelphia chapters are apparently not going
to DC. Instead, there are plans for them to join with the FOP in
countering our demonstration. We are sharing this to inform people and
expose their actions, and the FOP's affiliations. However, the
demonstration will go on, always with the safety of our community as top
priority, and our determination to never back down. We are not terrified
of them or their bald heads. Their parents and grandparents have been
lynching our people, and 20 some years ago wore blue uniforms during their
torture and arrest of Mumia. The march will go on. They just better not
get in our way.

ICFFMAJ wants to thank Philadelphia Anti-Racist Action and the One
People's Project for their work in educating the community about the
Neo-Nazi threat. The link to the flyer below provides detailed
information about the Neo-Nazis planning on counter-demonstrating
Saturday's demonstration for Mumia. As ICFFMAJ has stated before, we've
never been stopped before and we won't be stopped now.

Both KSS and MDS are confirmed as planning to show and attempt to counter.
Philly ARA and One People's Project have put together a flyer about it.

WE SHOULD BE DISCIPLINED AND NOT ALLOW OURSELVES TO BE PROVOKED. THIS IS
HOW THESE GROUPS TRY TO DISRUPT A DEMONSTRATION. WE MUST BE TIGHT AND
PREPARED TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS FROM ICFFMAJ.

UNDER 1 WEEK TO GO! MOBILISE TO DEMAND: FREE MUMIA NOW! All out on 19 April!

On Thursday, March 27, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision upholding Mumia Abu-Jamal’s frame-up conviction. In turning down Mumia’s appeal for a new trial, the Court ordered a new sentencing hearing to decide whether he is again to be sentenced to die or condemned to the living death of life in prison.

The Court’s decision is another slap in the face to all opponents of racist injustice. Recalling the infamous Dred Scott decision, the Court has again declared that a fighter for black freedom like Mumia has no rights that the courts are bound to respect. A former Black Panther Party spokesman, MOVE supporter and renowned journalist, Mumia is an innocent man, framed up for his political beliefs. He should never have spent a day in prison. There must be mass protests, centered on the power of the working class, to demand his freedom now.

One of my buddy's recently got into some trouble at a bar and the short story is he was arrested on assault charges which are ridiculous we were there and watched as a random guy came up to him punched him in the face and began repeatedly beating him. He stood up to defend himself and in the crossfire the wasted dude fell and banged his head on the kerb. The cops show up and don't want to hear us and arrest him.
It all got cleared up in the end but had that have gone to court and my friend had to have paid court bonds could he have claimed them back or even sued the police force for wrongful arrest? Also where would be the best place for getting bonded?
