JOY POWELL NEEDS TO USE THE LAW LIBRARY!

Joy Powell #07G0632 is requesting that we do a phone campaign to Commissioner Annucci and Bedford Hills in order to regain access to the prison law library so she can have meaningful communication with the court. This is essential at this time. The C.O. who is in charge of the law library has arbitrarily banned Joy from the library.

Joy is working on having her conviction overturned. She has been doing this pro se. Since she has been banned from the law library, Joy was unable to submit her documents on time to the court. NYC Jericho called the court in order to get a postponement for Joy’s submission of documents to the court, which was granted. Due date was Jan. 9, 2019, but the court agreed to a postponement until March 15, 2019.

People need to call Commissioner Annucci at 518-457-8126 and Bedford Hills at 914-241-3100 (ask to speak with superintendent, which will probably not happen). Be polite but firm. State that you are calling regarding Joyce Powell #07G0632 and request that she have access to the prison law library. This is her right, and she is being denied arbitrarily and capriciously by one C.O. People should also write to Annucci: Anthony J. Annucci, Dept. of Correctional and Community Supervision, The State Office Building Campus, Albany, NY 12226

This week for Mumia - Keep the pressure on Krasner!

On January 9, reports surfaced that on Dec. 28, DA Larry Krasner and his staff “found” six boxes of files, most with Mumia’s name on them, in a remote, nearly inaccessible storage area while “looking for furniture.” As the boxes were marked #18/29, 21/29, 23/29, 24/29, 29/29 and one unlabeled box, this is evidence of the possible existence of even more boxes of files related to Mumia’s case that were not made public during his initial appeals hearings.

On Dec. 27, Common Pleas Court Judge Leon Tucker issued a ruling favorable to Mumia that will allow him to present evidence of innocence. DA Krasner has until Jan. 26, 2019 to appeal. That these mysterious boxes appeared the day after Tucker’s decision raises even more concerns over the inability of the office of the Philadelphia district attorney to maintain secure records in one of the city’s most well known cases. It should also be further grounds that the DA’s office, including current occupant DA Larry Krasner, stop standing in the way of justice for Mumia and not appeal Tucker’s ruling.

Call, email or fax DA Larry Krasner to do the right thing. Do not stand in the way of justice. Do not appeal Judge Tucker’s decision

Remind Krasner: As a progressive attorney you ran for Philadelphia District Attorney on a platform that included standing “for justice, not just for convictions.” You promoted reviewing past convictions and freeing the wrongfully convicted. In Philadelphia, Abu-Jamal’s frame-up stands out as the city’s most notorious wrongful conviction.

We call on you to cease defending former Philadelphia DA and later PA Supreme Court Judge Ron Castille’s now-discredited claim of impartiality. It was a people’s movement that paved the way for your election – not the financial backing of the FOP or the establishment including judges like Castille.

Show your supporters that your campaign promises meant something. That your concern for justice extends to controversial cases your predecessors held untouchable. Allow Abu-Jamal to go forward with re-arguing his appeals, which Judge Tucker states “would best serve the appearance of justice.”

Keep writing and calling Krasner – contacts info:
