A message from Mumia Abu-Jamal

first_imgIn late February, political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal tested positive for COVID-19 and was treated for congestive heart disease. He had previously been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver from untreated hepatitis C, and he suffers from severe dermatitis. His supporters from around the globe flooded the phone lines and emails of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, prison officials and Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner demanding he be released. The following is a slightly edited March 19 message from Mumia to his supporters.Dear sisters, brothers, comrades, and friends and family on a MOVE! How can I thank you? These, my words, can hardly measure the flood of love that you have radiated on my behalf recently. I am almost — almost — without words, but I’ll try. Thank you, Wadiya. Thank you, Pam Africa. Your support from Philadelphia to France, from points across the nation and literally around the globe, have pulled me from a prison cell and placed me in a hospital room to be treated for a condition I didn’t know I had.In the age of pandemic as of January 2021, over 300,000 prisoners have tested positive for COVID-19. Imagine that in a cell, trying to breathe with a weight pressing on your chest. Imagine an elder man or woman, or even a young person, because yes, we are also in an age of mass incarceration, which day-by-day increases its infliction upon the elderly struggling, unsuccessfully, to breathe, to walk, to be.I thank you all for reaching out and I urge you all, let our mission be abolition. I love you all. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

California, Florida, Illinois, New York and South Carolina are the other states with the ban.The Texas Senate has approved bills that would allow open carry and campus carry for licensed gun holders. Both bills are pending in the House. Gov. Greg Abbott said he will sign open carry legislation into law.Private businesses, such as restaurants and stores, could prohibit firearms, and private universities, such as TCU, could also opt out of this law, by banning weapons on school property.“We are a private university, so the rules and regulations can change,” said TCU Police Lt. Ramiro Abad. “It all depends on the verbiage.”Students’ reactions to the bills are mixed.“I feel like this bill might make everyone feel more inclined to getting a firearm for their own protection, which makes sense, but in the end would not make the streets feel safer,” said Cait Faber, a second-year strategic communication at TCU. Twitter When students return from fall break, a new option will be brewing at Union Grounds in the Brown-Lupton University Union.Next Wednesday, the coffee shop will begin offering organic Fair Trade blends from a local business called Aduro Bean.The new option is the result of years of feedback from students who requested that the university provide Fair Trade coffee, said Kelly Raw, marketing manager for Dining Services.

Efforts to identify all of the victims remain ongoing.— TBI (@TBInvestigation) April 28, 2019 iStock/kali9(NEW YORK) — A suspect was taken into custody after seven people were killed in two separate homes over the weekend in Tennessee, authorities said.Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) responded to a home Saturday night on Charles Brown Road in Sumner County, where initially four people were found dead.A fifth victim – a woman — was found in another residence on Luvy Daniels Road, authorities said. The woman lived at the home and her car was stolen, Sumner County District Attorney Ray Whitley told ABC News.

Oregon basketball star sheds light on renewed support for women’s athletics

first_imgApril 12, 2021 /Sports News – National Oregon basketball star sheds light on renewed support for women’s athletics FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailTim Clayton/Corbis via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The NCAA has again come under fire for inequities in women’s athletics following a viral TikTok video from Oregon basketball star Sedona Prince that highlighted the stark differences in training facilities for the men’s and women’s teams.Prince joined Good Morning America Monday in her first interview since the NCAA tournament to shed light on why she chose to post the video and how she hopes it will spark change.“When we start talking about these things and when student athletes speak up about it, that’s how change happens. And you can see when we all spoke up about it and used our voices, there was change,” she said. “If my sport and people help out volleyball and we all become a unified system and unit of student athletes — that’s the most important thing we can do.”The video has now garnered over 30 million views on TikTok and Twitter.“I talked with some of my teammates when we got [to the training facility] and I was, like, ‘Wow, this is kind of not cool and not fair for us. We definitely need something bigger and something adequate. We’re D1 athletes,’” she said. “I made a video before practice. And I was more upset about it. I was very opinionated — and I made a video [after] that was more of, like, here’s what’s going on. Instead of my opinion, it would be better and help portray the message more, and I posted it and it did cool stuff.”Prince’s post quickly received attention and a lot of support from professional athletes like NBA star Stephen Curry, WNBA star and former Duck, Sabrina Ionescu, Aja Wilson, Anfernee Simons, Stacey Dales and more.“It means so much, especially in the NBA. Players I looked up to forever, watching them support women’s basketball means a lot to us because we put in a lot of work and we deserve to be represented,” Prince said. “The fact that they’re supporting us and hearing us and talking about our stories was pretty special and we started, like, a movement for sure.”Prince said the NCAA addressed the issue and improved the facilities but “the only thing we wanted was not really an apology, like, we didn’t need that. We just wanted it to change and for it to never happen again.”“That’s how we improve and how the NCAA improves and how we become better as student athletes and people as well,” she continued. “So, you know, they did the right thing by us. They built a weight room, but, you know, it was just a little too late.”An NCAA official apologized last month after Prince’s images and video surfaced on social media showing the stark differences between the women’s and men’s weight room facilities.“We fell short this year,” said Lynn Holzman, the NCAA’s vice president of women’s basketball, who vowed to make improvements soon after the visuals went viral.“I’ve experienced when you don’t have something that’s the same,” said Holzman, a former college basketball player. “This is also why it hit such a nerve with me. … There’s an accountability aspect as the conversation moves forward that is front of mind.”Although the Ducks were defeated by Louisville in their Sweet 16 matchup, the rising senior said her future goals include winning the Pac 12 and NCAA championships and eventually going professional.Prince reiterated that she hopes everyone keeps “talking about it, opening discussions and hearing opinions, and just educating people on sports and equality — that’s what we need.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
