image003.jpgChristina Swarns (NAACP Legal Defence and Educational Fund), Mumia Abu-Jamal’s lead lawyer, will be in London on 16th September for one day. She will speak about the latest developments in his case. Ms Swarns has been part of the Abu-Jamal legal team for some years. Her submissions on the issue of racism in jury selection were a crucial part of the appeal submitted in May 2007.
Ms Swarns visits just as a new book by Mumia (as he is known to millions) is launched in the UK.

It is published just as prisoners in the US demonstrate their massive movement against prisons as concentration camps of repression, humiliation and other injustice, with work strikes, hunger strikes and other courageous actions, crossing racial divides.
