The Crucifixion of Mumia Abu-Jamal

AppleKvist_7230

Some people stand out.
They go beyond,
exerting themselves to capture the light.
They defy their conditions
and their circumstances
to amplify the light.
Truth is the iron in their blood.
It glows with life.

Mumia Abu-Jamal
shackled, behind bars, in isolation
shares his light
shattering darkness for us all.

 

 

Two quotes from Mumia Abu-Jamal’s book All Things Censored:

“At bottom, the media is a multibillion dollar industry that serves the interests of the owners, investors, and stockholders, as in every other industry. So-called public interest is, at best, purely incidental.”

“The powerful have an intrinsic interest in silencing the expressions of discontent by the powerless.”
