Dozens participated in the ‘Free Mumia’ march and rally in support of Mumia Abu-Jamal, a political activist and former member of the Black Panther Party who has been incarcerated for over 40 years.

Footage shows protesters gathering for the rally in Oakland on Saturday, which was also the 67th birthday of the incarcerated Mumia.

“It is incredibly important for us to unite to free Mumia Abu-Jamal. He has been in prison for over 40 years for a crime he did not commit, for his outspoken defence of black people, of people who are struggling against the US government and against gentrification. He was framed and he was set up at a time when the Philadelphia police department and government was rampant with KKK members and white council members,” remarked one protester.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is currently serving a life sentence for the heavily disputed 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. The case has split the nation for decades, as Abu-Jamal’s supporters, including a long list of well-known celebrities, say he was framed.

“What I think is we’re gonna have a continued struggle, even though the murderer of brother Floyd was found guilty. The whole world was watching what were they gonna do. That one correct decision does not obliterate or erase the entire Jim Crow, lynching, mass incarceration,” stated a protester.

Abu-Jamal maintains his innocence and his case has drawn international scrutiny due to repeated claims of police bias and misconduct. The case even prompted a report by Amnesty International.

Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
