More Info
“Justice on Trial: Mumia Abu Jamal”

On Nov. 9 a Federal court in Philadelphia again took up the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, journalist, author and former member of the Black Panther Party currently on death row. The results of that hearing, which will determine if Mumia is executed or gets life imprisonment, have not been decided YET. Attorney Robert Bryan says that Mumia is now “in the greatest dan…ger since his 1981 arrest.”

Dec. 9 is the 29th anniversary of the night Mumia was accused of murdering a white policeman. He has always affirmed his innocence. This new film, “Justice on Trial: The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal,” fairly presents the arguments made by Mumia’s supporters alongside the prosecution’s arguments and interviews with others advocating Mumia’s execution. The film’s featured interviews include press photographer Pedro Polakoff, whose newly discovered crime scene photos expose police manipulation of evidence.

News from Councilmember Bernard Parks:

Fresh and Easy, Neighborhood Market
Located on Crenshaw Blvd at 52nd Street. This fresh food and produce grocery store will provide residents of the Eighth District with long-awaited, high quality grocery options. These fresh food choices can assist in the fight against diabetes, which is of great concern to the South Los Angeles community. Additionally, this development project will provide the residents of the Eighth District economic benefits through the addition of high quality jobs, both in construction and in permanent retail positions once the store opens. Find out more goings on in the 8th District here.
