Happy Birthday Mumia!
Today is Mumia Abu-Jamal’s birthday he is turning 59 years old; Happy Birthday Mumia. Mumia is a political prisoner since 1982, he was sentenced to death row for the killing of Philadelphia police department officer named Daniel Faulkner; Mumia denies the accusation.”I never confessed to anything because I had nothing to confess to. I never said I shot the policeman. I did not shoot the policeman. I never said I hoped he died. I would never say something like that,” quote from Mumia. Mumia since his incarceration has had popular support from all over the world. A big turning point in Mumia’s life came forth, as recently as January 27, 2012, the day Mumia was allowed to join the general population after 29 years in death row.
