Mumia Abu-Jamal Moved from Prison to Intensive Care, Supporters Seek Access and Answers | Democracy Now!

JOHANNA FERNÁNDEZ: — Keith Cook, for the past 20 hours. Pam Africa, Ramona Africa, they all drove there from Harrisburg, where the case of the silencing act was being heard before the third circuit court. Immediately, after that ended, they rushed up to Pottsville, and the doctors will not speak to us. They will not release any information to the family. Meanwhile, Mumia is shackled, probably, to a bed. There are four guards, a phalanx of guards guarding him, and keeping us from the room, 10 feet away. We were able to see that he was behind this room.AMY GOODMAN: What do you feel needs to happen?JOHANNA FERNÁNDEZ: We need to defend Mumia’s life immediately. He is in enemy territory right now, and we need people to call the hospital, Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. We need people to call the prison and demand that he be seen by outside doctors to really assess the situation.AMY GOODMAN: Johanna, we have to leave it there. I thank you for being with us, Johanna Fernández, Professor of History at Baruch College CUNY, one of the coordinators of the campaign to Bring Mumia Home, it’s called. That does it for the show. A very happy birthday to our own Mike Burke!
