SIGN ON to MUMIA'S AMICUS BRIEFS
On August 7, 2000, Judge Yohn rejected all of the Amicus Briefs filed on Mumias behalf.THIS IS NO SMALL MATTER.Contained within these briefs is vital evidence supported by precedent setting cases that reveal the many injustices committed against Mumia during his trial. This ruling was unprecedented as normally judges who are seeking the truth, welcome Amicus Briefs.Judge Yohns ruling represents another attempt to prevent Mumia from receiving a real trial, where all the evidence is heard.This is Mumias last chance, as Judge Yohns decisions will set precedent for the final appeals.
WE MUST ACT NOW! Having your organization sign a Notice of Joinder to the Chicana/Chicano Studies Foundation Amicus Brief will greatly aid us in the ongoing Appeal of Judge Yohns decision.
Enclosed is ... the Notice of Joinder forms needed to sign on. Please review the brief, and the Table of Contents found on the first three pages of the brief filed for the Chicana/Chicano Studies Foundation. If you do not have a copy of the brief it can be emailed to you, downloaded from www.mumia.org , or mailed to you for a suggested donation of $4.00.
It is preferable that a typewriter be used in completing the Notice of Joinder.
