Dear friend,
The time to act is now.

Five months after being rushed to the hospital, new medical tests show that Mumia has active Hepatitis C. But prison officials are refusing to treat him for it.

With your help, that changes- today.
————————————————————
Mumia Abu-Jamal remains weak, ill, and in the prison infirmary.

Five months after being admitted to the hospital with lethal blood sugar levels and in renal failure, he continues to have a debilitating skin rashes, open wounds and swelling across his lower extremities. Because of our relentless demands for medical testing and treatment, we finally know the likely cause of his severe ailments: Hepatitis C.

But what is news to us is not news to his jailers. Prison officials have known that Mumia was Hep. C positive since 2012– and have done nothing.

Even now that prison doctors know that Mumia’s Hep. C is active -from testing they performed solely because we demanded it- they are refusing to provide treatment.

** Today, we are going back to court to demand justice for our brother.
————————————————————
Mumia’s legal team (Bret Grote of Abolitionist Law Center and Robert Boyle of New York) is filing an amended lawsuit today, ‘Abu-Jamal v. Kerestes (http://www.prisonradio.org/sites/default/files/letters/pdf/Abu-Jamal%20v.%20Kerestes%2C%20et%20al.-Amended%20Complaint_1.pdf) ‘, to include medical neglect and demand immediate treatment.

Meanwhile, Prison Radio is working tirelessly to make sure Mumia’s legal and medical team have the necessary resources to get Mumia the critical care he needs.
