Philadelphia Fightback

by on April 10, 2015

**Sept 5, 2017: Public Forum: Defend anti-white supremacy activists. FB Event.

Charlottesville, Durham, Boston, Philadelphia, New Orleans and more – anti-racists actions all across the country are proof of a sea change in the struggle against white supremacy!

Our sisters and brothers on the front lines of this struggle who faced down the fascists need our continued support. Many, especially in Durham, are facing serious charges. In addition, main stream media in Philadelphia and other cities have gone on the attack against Black Lives Matter, antifa, communist and other left activists.

Join in a discussion on building left unity in the face of fascism and building support for activists facing charges.

***June 28, 2017: Rally and March for Police Abolition. FB Event.


-Phila: May 30, 2017: Blow the Lid Off Philly DA Cover Ups – Free Mumia / Press Conference & March / FB Event 

On April 24, 2017, a Philly court reviewed 17 Philadelphia prisoners’ cases, including that of Mumia Abu Jamal. These cases are bound up in the recent political battle for transparency and justice in the DA’s office. They hold that PA Supreme Court Judge Ronald Castille should have recused himself from their appeals hearings because of Castille’s prior involvement in these cases as Deputy DA and elected DA of Philadelphia. In the Abu-Jamal case, the court ordered the release, by May 31, of all internal Philly DA records that site Ronald Castille’s involvement in the case. The suppression of evidence is a common practice in Philly DA’s office! Take a stand for justice! Release ALL the files! Free the innocent!

April 12, 2017: In a major victory not just for Mumia but for the movement that has stood firm & not backed down, the Dept. of Corrections has been ordered to start administering the hep C meds, which it has.

Thanks goes out to all who signed and circulated petitions and attended demonstrations; made phone calls; helped with research; and invited Pam and others to speak in your cities.

The next step is an all out call for April 24th when Mumia’s appeal of his conviction is due to come to court in Philadelphia.

All week: Listing of many actions

Progressives, socialists, feminists, Black Lives Matter, environmentalists, and anti-war activists: Let’s build a united front to take on the racist, capitalist Democratic party!

The Presidential elections that take place every four years bring about only cosmetic changes: different faces running the government while the same billionaire masters still call all the shots. Whether it’s Clinton or Trump, Democrat or Republican, police will still terrorize us and low wages will keep us in or near poverty. That is, unless we fight back!

WE’VE HAD ENOUGH! No more fake “democracy” in our city!
NOT while racist cops run wild.
NOT while our public schools go criminally underfunded.
NOT while our people suffer some of the highest poverty levels in the country.

We demand self-government, not super rich capitalists. Free Mumia and all political prisoners! Reparations now! Women’s and LGBTQ liberation now! Abolish capitalism and oppression NOW! It’ll only happen if we FIGHT FOR IT!

(From the Coalition for Racial, Economic And Legal Justice FaceBook)

On Monday, April 6 – be outside the Municipal Court at 2pm on Monday at 1301 Filbert Street in Philadelphia to support the Philly 10 – activists arrested on March 19 while protesting at a meeting where Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and DA Seth Williams were going to discuss law enforcement issues. This was the same day Williams announced that two police officers involved in the death of Brandon Tate-Brown would not be charged.

The Philly 10, held a press conference on March 26 outside Philadelphia City Hall to counter the cops’ continued racist media vilification of the movement against police brutality and murder.

Megan Malachi, a member of the R.E.A.L. Justice Coalition and one of the Philly 10, told the media: “The actions of the PPD at the community policing panel is a prime example of their wanton, violent aggression in response to dissent from the people they are charged to ‘protect and serve.’ It is clear that we can no longer attempt to reform the PPD. They should be immediately disempowered, disarmed and disbanded.”

Rufus Farmer, another of the 10 arrestees, called Commissioner Charles Ramsey and the PPD’s version of events “completely out of touch with reality.”

Come out Monday with signs and banners demanding to know who killed Brandon Tate-Brown and that all charges against the 10 be dropped.

On Tuesday, April 7: 10th Ferguson to Philly Town Hall Mtg. – 6:30 to 9pm. 1501 Cherry St., Philadelphia

The Coalition for Racial, Economic And Legal Justice continues to struggle against police terror.

Join us as we organize campaigns for justice for Frank McQueen, Brandon Tate-Brown, and other local and national victims of police brutality.

Take part in a special report and discussion on issues involved in the U.S. Department of Justice recent report on the Philadelphia Police Department’s use of deadly force.

Hear about the struggle for adequate health care of Mumia Abu-Jamal and other prisoners, and how the refusal of the State Corrections administrators to treat certain prisoners is tantamount to a death sentence by medical malpractice.

Share this event with your friends, family and co-workers. Help make this ongoing peoples assembly a strong community resource for action. Childcare and light refreshments will be provided. The Friends Center is wheel chair accessible and close to major public transportation routes.
