by Hans Bennett
WATCH THE VIDEO!
(and also parts one and two)
On May 1, the day of his book's release, author J. Patrick O'Connor was interviewed at Philadelphia City Hall about "The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal." In part three of this interview, he condemns the recent decision by the PA Parole Board denying parole for the three remaining MOVE 9 women.
On May 2, The New York Times featured the book in an article by Jon Hurdle: "Book Asserts Black Reporter Didn't Kill White Officer in '81."
Also, be sure to watch part one of this interview, as well as videos of the April 19 demonstration for Mumia, March 31 press conference for Mumia at the Federal Courthouse, and more.
In his new book, O'Connor argues that Kenneth Freeman was the actual shooter of Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, and he criticizes the media, who, he says "bought into the prosecution's story line early on and has never been able to see this case for what it is: a framing of an innocent and peace loving man." For more on "The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal" read the April interview, an excerpt, a previous interview, The March 27 court ruling, and O'Connor's review of "Murdered By Mumia."
Stay tuned for the new video from the May 10 demonstration organized by MOVE in downtown Philadelphia..... To be released on Tuesday, May 13!
