Spread Love, Challenge Fear
On October 26, 2022, Judge Lucretia Clemons of the Philadelphia Common Pleas Court adopted procedural arguments put forward by the Philadelphia District Attorney (DA) to deny Mumia Abu-Jamal relief. Judge Clemons noted in her preliminary denial that even if the jury knew that key prosecution witnesses were paid and promised favors to falsely testify against Mumia, they would still have imposed Mumia’s death sentence; thus making the revelations moot or “not material.”
In a brilliant reply brief, Mumia’s lawyers have skillfully countered this misapplication of law and standards of review while again documenting the extreme racial bias and payments and favors promised by the DA to witnesses for their demonstrably false testimony against Mumia. Included in this dramatic just-revealed evidence is a note from a key witness asking the DA“for his money” after the trial. This letter was buried in District Attorney files for 38 yrs.

“At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality.”

“Fear is the primary force upholding structures of domination. It promotes the desire for separation, the desire not to be known. When we are taught that safety lies always with sameness, then differences, of any kind, will appear as a threat. When we choose to love we choose to move against fear — against alienation and separation. The choice to love is a choice to connect — to find ourselves in the other.”
