HOUSTON EVENT FOR MUMIA

FILM: In Prison My Whole Life
The court system has closed its doors to the possibility of a new trial for Mumia and has left only two alternatives for him: execution or life in prison without parole. We demand the Department of Justice conduct a civil rights investigation into the outrageous frame-up of Mumia.
