Listen to this great interview that covers both Mumia’s current health status, and his push for Hep C treatment, as well as updates on Nicole and Joseph’s case.
Orie Lumumba talks about Mumia Abu-Jamal. Mumia contracted Hep C in 1981 from a blood transfusion related to the shooting surrounding his arrest. Mumia & his supporters are now trying to get access for him and the other 10,000 prisoners in the state of PA who are known to have Hep C but which the government is denying due to the cost of treatment.

Petey, a supporter of Nicole Kissane & Joseph Buddenberg, talks about the two animal activists living in the Bay Area facing charges of conspiracy under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. Petey talks about the people, the case so far and a bit about the potential of a chilling affect left by AETA terrorism charges on the animal rights and animal liberation movements in the U.S. More on the case can be found at http://supportnicoleandjoseph.com
