From the listserv of the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal:
Long Distance Revolutionary posted:Stalwart Philadelphia Journalist Linn Washington writes about the cancelation of our film on Mumia’s life by the Cityplex12 in Newark. A Press Conference & Picket will be held in front of the theater this Friday to protest this act of corporate censorship. Speaking at the press conference will be Director Stephen Vittoria, members of Newark’s People’s Organization for Progress, and renowned Newark native, Poet Amiri Baraka. Spread the word, let your voice be heard. The people of Newark have been denied.
