Film Review: Injustice


“The police are not concerned about protecting me or any of the working class, because they are put here by the ruling class to protect the interests of the rich from the poor. To enforce their laws that keep together their system, that keeps them at the top and the majority at the bottom”.

Dublin protest to save life of former Black Panther


Join the protest in Dublin on Saturday April 19th
2pm, Ballsbridge.

Journalist and former Black Panther, Mumia Abu-Jamal, still faces execution by the US state. Last month the Appeal Court in Philadelphia ruled against a new trial. They have called for a new sentencing hearing, which will result in either an execution or life in prison without parole.

This man has been on death row since 1982. It is widely believed that he was railroaded to jail because of his radical views and personal history. Among those who have taken up his case are:
The National Union of Journalists, the Graphical, Paper & Media Union, International Organisation of Journalists, Nelson Mandela, Salman Rushdie, Rage Against the Machine, Christy Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Proinsias DeRossa MEP,, Joe Higgins (Socialist Party), Workers Solidarity Movement and the Connolly Youth Movement.

Protests in Ireland and around the world can have an effect. In 1995 a wave of international protest prevented Mumia's execution, even after a date had been set.
