Statement of Wadiya Jamal for the December 18, 2015 Federal Court Hearing to Get Medical Treatment for Mumia Abu-Jamal:
Stop Killing My Husband Mumia Abu-Jamal and Free Him Now!!
Wadiya Jamal, December 17, 2015
I am Wadiya Jamal, wife of Mumia Abu-Jamal. One year ago today Samiya, our youngest daughter, died of cancer at the age of thirty-six. Mumia wasn’t home to see her, to hold and comfort her, her two young daughters or me. He hasn’t been to her gravesite. Mumia is in prison for life for a crime he did not commit!
This past year Mumia has been critically ill he, suffering from a horrible, itching torturous skin condition and almost dying of diabetic shock. He has Hep C that the prison has refused to treat. Instead they try to hide how sick he is – now they are cooking him under sunlamps. Mumia’s life is at risk. It is execution by medical mistreatment.
This rotten ass system has made many attempts on my husband's life. Mumia is innocent in the murder of police officer Daniel Faulkner on December 9, 1981 and the cops on the scene all knew that. His Hep C is from the blood transfusions 34 years ago when he survived a cop’s gunshot to the chest through his lungs to his liver and a serious ass whipping by cops on the street of 13th and Locust, then cops surrounding his hospital bed, stepping on his urine bag making the poison go back up into his body. Mumia’s only crime was to survive that night! Mumia is innocent!
They tried to kill Mumia by execution—he was locked in a cage in solitary on death row for thirty years but he couldn’t be silenced. Now they are trying to kill him on slow death row, life imprisonment, by medical mistreatment.
Mumia is innocent; he should never have been arrested or convicted!!! He should never have been in prison in solitary facing execution. This medical condition should never have happened. Mumia needs to be free!!!
To all those people around the world who have given their love and support to Mumia over the years, please, please, please ACT NOW!!!!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! MUMIA MUST LIVE!!!! . HE NEEDS MEDICAL CARE AND ATTENTION. WE NEED TO FIGHT FOR HIM TO GET THAT CARE, NOW! WE NEED TO FIGHT TO GET MUMIA OUT OF PRISON, FREE AND HOME, NOW!!!
Wadiya Jamal, with Big Pride
