DE MUMIA ABU-JAMAL
UNA DEMOCRACIA ROBADA
#481  Artículo escrito el 11/10/2000
Todos los derechos reservados


Creo que el público americano quiere a un solemne asno como presidente y

pienso que sigo el mismo camino.
-- Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)
    30 éssimo Presidente de los EE.UU.

Americanos, por millónes, fueron a sus lugares de votación, para
participar
en el proceso político. Nota, no estava dicho que votaban para elegir a
un
Presidente,
y no pudieron hacerlo así. El pueblo votó para electores, un misterioso
racimo de virtualmente desconocidos asignatarios políticos, que quieren
sentarse en los capitales estatales y decidir quién será el Presidente y
el
Vice presidente de los Estados Unidos. Es aquí donde el Colegio
Electoral
entra en el juego, un grupo de unas 538 personas que votarán a quien
quieran como presidente. No importa a quien millónes de Americanos
pensaran
que estaban votando. El Colegio Electoral vota por quien sea que
quieran, y
su elección se volverá ley.

Claro está, de acuerdo con la divulgación y los informes de los medios,
el
Partido Demócrata ha recibido la mayoría del voto popular, y parece que
el
candidato Republicano recibió más votos electorales. ¿Si esta figura es
afirmada y certificada, entonces adivinen quien declarará bajo juramento
en
Enero 2001?
¿Qué clase de democracia es esto?
Lo que es, es democracia Americana.
¿Quién se preocupa realmente si unos 19.000 votantes registrados en Palm

Beach Oeste han perdido sus votos. Un portavoz político pidió comentar
la
posible privación de derechos políticos de más de 19.000 votantes,
Haitianos, Judíos y Afroamericanos entre ellos, contestado, "Difícil".
Esto es democracia Americana.

->The nation that looks down its aquiline nose to Haiti, that lectures
Nigeria on democracy, and spits on Cuba while boasting of the "free
vote,"
is a democracy of thieves. So much for the lie that "every vote counts."

Perhaps it should be said that every vote counted counts, eh?
American history is not one of democracy, but of undemocracy, as women,
Africans, Indians, and poor, unpropertied white men spent most of the
nation's existence unable to vote. When mass protests forced laws
opening
up the vote, new means were found to suppress the vote of so-called
"outsiders."->

El Colegio Electoral es una institución construida para proteger a los
gobernadores de demasiada democracia en lo reglamentado. Es para
proteger
el poderío del pueblo. Es una institución que es profundamente
antidemocrática.
En 1824, 1876, 1888, y ahora en 2000 el hombre que ha ganado la mayoría
del
voto popular, ha perdido correspondientemente en el Colegio Electoral, y
de
esta manera las elecciones.
Esto es historia Americana. Esto es tradición Americana. Esto es
democracia
Americana.

DIA DE ACCION POR LA LIBERTAD DE LEONARD PELTIER Y MUMIA ABU-JAMAL
Leonard Peltier, miembro del American Indian Movement, es un prisionero
politico amerindio y una figura emblematica de las luchas y resistencias
de
los pueblos autoctonos.
Hace mas de 24 años que el gobierno de los EE.UU. mantiene su
encarcelacion
arbitraria, a pesar de que el Ministerio publico ha admitido en varias
ocasiones que no sabe quien es el autor de los crimenes que le han sido
imputados en el desarrollo de un juicio fraudulento.
Hace mas de 24 largos y duros años que Leonard Peltier ha sido
continuamente privado de su derecho a la justicia y que el proclama
incansablemente su inocencia.

"Sólo soy culpable de ser indio" declara él.

Son mas de 24 años robados a un hombre que hoy tiene 56 años y que no ha

visto crecer a sus hij@s, ni nacer a sus nietos.

24 años de abusos!

El presidente Clinton tiene el poder y el deber de poner fin a esta
injusticia y de conceder la libertad a Leonard Peltier concediendole el
perdon presidencial.
El comite de defensa de Leonard Peltier en los EE.UU. (LPDC) organiza en

New York el 10 de diciembre una marcha desde Union Square en direccion a

las Naciones Unidas. Se necesita movilizar varios millares de personas
para
demostrar a Clinton y al gobierno americano que la agonia de Leonard
Peltier en prision debe cesar.
Ha sido la solidaridad Internacional la que consiguio la libertad de
Nelson
Mandela, con vuestro apoyo Leonard Peltier sera devuelto en libertad a
su
familia y a su comunidad

FROM MUMIA ABU-JAMAL
A STOLEN DEMOCRACY
#481 Column Written 11/10/2000
Mumia Abu-Jamal, M.A.
All Rights Reserved

I think the American public wants a solemn ass as a President and I
think I'll go along with them.
-- Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)
    30th U.S. President

Americans, by the millions, went to their polling places, to
participate in the political process.  Notice, it was not said that they

voted to elect a President, for they did not do so.  People voted for
electors, a mysterious bunch of virtually unknown political appointees,
who
will sit in state capitals and decide who will be the President and
Vice-President of the United States.  It is here that the Electoral
College
comes into play, a group of 538 people who will vote for who they want
to be
president.  It matters not who millions of Americans thought they were
voting for.  The Electoral College votes for whomever they want, and
their
choice becomes the law.
Indeed, according to broadcast and media reports, the Democratic
Party candidate received a majority of the popular vote, and it appears
the
Republican candidate received more electoral votes.  If that figure is
affirmed and certified, then guess who gets sworn in in January, 2001?
What kind of democracy is that?
What it is, is American democracy.
Who really cares if some 19,000 West Palm Beach registered voters
had their ballots tossed out?  One political spokesman, asked to comment
on
the possible disenfranchisement of over 19,000 voters, Haitians, Jews
and
African-Americans among them, replied, "Tough."
That is American democracy.

The nation that looks down its aquiline nose to Haiti, that lectures
Nigeria on democracy, and spits on Cuba while boasting of the "free
vote,"
is a democracy of thieves.  So much for the lie that "every vote
counts."
Perhaps it should be said that every vote counted counts, eh?
American history is not one of democracy, but of undemocracy, as
women, Africans, Indians, and poor, unpropertied white men spent most of
the
nation's existence unable to vote.  When mass protests forced laws
opening
up the vote, new means were found to suppress the vote of so-called
"outsiders."
The Electoral College is an institution constructed to protect the
rulers from too much democracy by the ruled.  It is to protect the
powerful
from the people.  It is an institution that is profoundly undemocratic.
In
1824, 1876, 1888, and now in 2000 the man who won the most popular votes

lost the Electoral College tally, and thus the election.
That's American history.  That's American tradition.
That's American democracy.

Working meetings on Sunday, December 10, 2000 in Philly!


TRIBUNAL 2  for Mumia Abu-Jamal 2000  will be held in Philadelphia PA on

Saturday,  December 9, 2000. INTERNATIONAL CONCERNED FAMILY & FRIENDS OF

MUMIA ABU-JAMAL (ICFFMAJ) is calling for all individuals/organizations
to
help in the mobilization, building, planning for TRIBUNAL 2 for Mumia
Abu-Jamal.

Please contact the ICFFMAJ office via phone at 215/476-5416 or e-mail
icffmaj@aol.com.  Please play a vital role by being part of a
working committee. We want TRIBUNAL 2 2000 to be a success like the
People's
Tribunal for Mumia Abu-Jamal of December 1997. We are asking for all to
represent-including for the international community to have strong
representation in Philadelphia.

Donations are desperately, urgently needed. Please send your donations
to
International Concerned Family & Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, P.O. Box
19709
Phila, PA 19143. Checks,money orders, etc. should be made out to
ICFFMAJ.

ICFFMAJ requests that all who have been victimized, and/or experienced
harrassment/butality because of their stance, work for Mumia Abu-Jamal;
contact the ICFFMAJ Philadelphia, PA. If you have been attacked by cops
-
STAND UP AND BE ACCOUNTED FOR! It is illegal and immoral. A class action
law
suit is pending.

Mumia Abu-Jamal request that everyone read/comprehend the amicus briefs
that
have been filed recently on his behalf. Especially the Chicano brief.
This
quite clearly exposes the cointelpro attacks sustained in court against
Mumia Abu-Jamal and is evident that Mumia should have been set free much

earlier!
The Chicano brief and the brief filed by members of the British
Parliament
are quite essential however just recently Judge Yohn as turned down
these
briefs including others and deemed them as "unnecessary".  ICFFMAJ
requests
that organizations (and others) IAC, Refuse & Resist, Bruderhof
community,
etc. put out their analysys/perspectives on the briefs on their
websites,
emails,  newspapers, communications, etc. to expose this type of
cointelpro
tactics.

On December 9th anti-death penalty activists, lovers of justice and
freedom
and people of good conscience around the world will protest the

row inmate, awaits a decision by Federal District Curt Judge William H.
Yohn
Jr. on his petition for a writ of habeas corpus.  This is a decision on

constitutionality of Mumia's "trial" before Judge Albert Sabo, widely
known
as the "hanging Judge." We are demanding justice and a full hearing by
the
federal court.

Pam Africa, coordinator of the International Concerned Family and

Dear Friends:

Well, I have placed on the new site all the information I currently
have.
This site consists of individual pages for murdered prisoners, including

photos, news accounts and links to the e-mail sites of the governors of
those states.

It also includes a page for misc. cases of deaths in prison about which
I
have little information, and a page about criminal staff who have been
charged with abuse or murder of prisoners and those pages have links to
a
site from which they can locate the governors of all states and locate
their email or regular addresses.  If anyone has, or can get more
information on any of the "More Murdered Prisoners" entries, I will be
glad
to flesh out their entries, or if I get enough data, create their own
page
on the site.

Murdered prisoners who already have web sites, such as Bud Tant, Jeff
Dicks, and Wayne Nelson have had their sites linked as regular site
buttons, and anyone who has a site about a murdered prisoner, please
contact me and I will add yours also.

I invite everyone to submit any information you have which fits into
either
category of murdered (including medically neglected) prisoners, or
information about guards charged with abuse or murder.  We want to make
these people - both the murdered and the abusers/murderers - known to
the
world as HUMAN BEINGS rather than cold, dry statistics.

The site and its individual prisoner pages have been added to the PRUP
web
ring and everyone is welcome/invited/implored to link their sites to
this
site.  It's at http://hotyellow98.com/prisonmurder

It's a Hot Yellow 98 site, so it loads slowly, and I apologize.  I only
know how to use two systems and this is the one of those which permits
me
to load pictures.  Someday I learn a faster provider....if I ever get
time
;-)

I've also added guest books to each page and ask that everyone drop a
note
of encouragement to the families of those who have their own pages in
order
to blunt the sting of the unsympathetic remarks they will inevitably
find
there.

In addition, I have begun an Excel spreadsheet to track deaths in
prisons,
and will appreciate everyone's help with this.  Since we can't get these

statistics anywhere else, guess we'll have to create our own.  It won't
be
entirely accurate, as we will not be made aware of some deaths, but it
should provide us a remarkable document, anyway.  I am tracking the
following information, so please send me as much of it about the
prisoner
as you can when you submit entries:

LAST NAME
FIRST NAME
DATE OF BIRTH
DATE OF DEATH
STATE OF DEATH
FACILITY OF DEATH
CAUSE OF DEATH - AS REPORTED BY THE PRISON AND ALSO ANY SUSPICIONS
FAMILY
AND FRIENDS MAY HAVE OF THE TRUE CAUSE OF DEATH

I will be able to make charts of this data, and will be able to sort the

data to chart it any way anyone wants it - by state, by unit, by age of
prisoner, by date of birth.  The more data we get the more accurate our
charts will be, so everyone's help will be needed.

Please ask your loved ones to let you know as much as possible about
every
death that happens in the prison where they're incarcerated so we can
increase the accuracy of our database.

WHEN SUBMITTING INFORMATION FOR ENTRY, PLEASE SEND IT DIRECTLY TO ME AT
lcmiller@tx3.net AND NOT THROUGH A LIST.  THE LIST OWNERS AND
SUBSCRIBERS
WILL KILL ME IF THEY START GETTING DOZENS OF EXTRA E-MAILS A DAY WHICH
ARE
MEANT FOR ME, SO PLEASE SAVE MY LIFE AND SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO ME :-)

Unfortunately, I'm sure this site is FAR from complete - tragically, it
will continue to grow even when you and I are gone from this plane, but
it's a start.  If anyone finds any inaccuracies, broken links or
anything,
please let me know.

In Solidarity,
Linda Tant Miller
