Mumia Abu-Jamal, the world symbol of resistance against oppression, is in medical danger and is not receiving the care he needs. With no history of diabetes, suddenly he suffers from high blood sugar and despite his life-threatening illness, he was hospitalized for only two days and later transferred back to prison. The US Government, having the highest number of prisoners in the world, is applying dirty methods of using high percentage of sugar and salts in prison food, in order gradually kill the political prisoners.
The occupier US Government, besides shedding blood in many countries of the world in close collaboration with its local vile minions, is committing crime against US citizens as well. The repression of recent protests in different states of USA shows that the US Govt. is not acting better than the murderous dictators of Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Iran. They all carry the same nefarious essence.
Abu-Jamal stood up against the unjust system to get his basic rights, but faced further discrimination, abuse and finally imprisoned and sentenced to death to silence him, as he himself says: “Prison is a second-by-second assault on the soul, a day-to-day degradation of the self, an oppressive steel and brick umbrella that transforms seconds into hours and hours into days.” The autocratic regime of US forgets that wherever is oppression, there is resistance.
The Solidarity Party of Afghanistan (SPA), in chorus with tormented and freedom-loving people of Afghanistan, vehemently condemns the atrocities against Mumia Abu-Jamal and other political prisoners around the world, and calls upon all progressive forces and individuals of world to stand up, as one clenched fist, for urgent release of Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Fighting for Abu-Jamal is fighting for humanity!
