RE: Mumia Abu-Jamal AM8335
It has come to our attention that Mumia Abu-Jamal's health is deteriorating under your negligent care. It is reported that he suffers abnormal swelling, has open sores on his skin, can barely walk and has to be spoon-fed. We have also learned that prison authorities have denied Mr. Abu-Jamal the right to be examined by his own doctor, denied that he be examined by a diabetes specialist, and even denied him special phone communication with medical assistants. This is outrageous.
As this has become a matter of life and death, we demand Mumia Abu-Jamal be released immediately so his life can be saved.
Very truly yours,
