URGENT: The State Wants Mumia To Die
Mumia has Congestive Heart Failure and Covid-19!
“Freedom is the only Treatment.” - Mumia’s physician, Dr. Ricardo Alvarez
“Rise up, the power is in the people, Mumia’s life is in our hands.” - Pam Africa
This is a life and death situation and we need to mobilize immediately.
Congestive heart failure. Unrelenting skin eruptions are causing damaged, ruptured, leathery, dry, exposed wounds. Not one spot on Mumia's body is free of dry cracked and bloody open wounds. No longer in an outside hospital, Mumia is back in the prison infirmary in excruciating discomfort and pain.
The message from his personal physician, Dr. Ricardo Alvarez, could not be clearer, “Freedom is the only treatment.”
Mumia requires: Treatment – Diagnosis – Liberation
We must not wait one moment, one day, one heartbeat. We must ACT NOW to treat these conditions:
Congestive Heart Failure
Covid-19 breathing difficulties
Organ failure of the skin
Mumia's leg: full of sores and bloody wounds.
Mumia is being denied diagnosis and adequate treatment for his skin condition. He is held in isolation in the prison infirmary without healing salves and ointments that he had in his cell. He is also denied regular access to a phone or access to his tablet which provides the connection to his email. This communication is a vital lifeline.
Make no mistake, phone calls do work - last week your phone calls meant that Mumia was whisked to the hospital for four days. He was diagnosed and treated for congestive heart failure and they removed excess fluid in his body. Those treatments must continue to be carefully monitored.
Mumia is now in the infirmary at SCI Mahanoy: the same infirmary where he suffered medical neglect in 2014 that sent him into renal failure. That year his medical care required careful blood sugar monitoring and when he did not receive that, he went into a diabetic coma. Abu-Jamal vs. Wetzel, a lawsuit over those conditions, is still pending.
The Fraternal Order of Police has stated that it intends for Mumia to die alone, inside this prison. We say no.
CALL TO ACTION call, write, tweet, post and fax to demand demand “freedom, treatment, diagnosis, and access to his lawyers, doctors, and family for Mumia Abu-Jamal at SCI Mahanoy.”
