Greetings Friends, supporters, and Mumia,
          I know that this must be a sad and frustrating time for you as  
the negative defeats that we have received in my case have been to us.  
Iknow it is easy for me and others to tell you not to give up the fight. I
personally understand and know the feeling many times through this
twenty-three years of wanting to say the hell with it and give up--
believing that there is no way to defeat this evil empire. Sometimes  
itjust seems hopeless.
  When this happens I am always reminded by my courageoussupporters, like  
those of you who are here today, that to accept defeatis not a warrior's  
  As long as the people have not accepted defeat, neither will we. So  
Iwould like to encourage you to stay strong and continue the fight until
Mumia is victorious.
  It is an outrage that the courts continue to ignore blatant evidence
and continue to play legal games with our lives. This insanity is a  
hugeinsult, not only to those of us who remain unjustly imprisoned, but to
all of you who dedicate your lives to our freedom and are ignored by  
thecorporate owned justice system and media.
  I want to encourage supporters to intensify the struggle for Mumia's  
  I know you can stop this execution because no matter how evil  
agovernment may be they still cannot defeat the power of the people.Your  
work and help is needed more than ever. We must now live and breathe  
Mumia's case twenty-four hours a day.
  If we are able in unity to stop the execution of Mumia Abu-Jamal, weare  
not only saving the life of the man who speaks for those who are notoften  
heard and who's stories are rarely told, but you are saving all of
us who remain unjustly behind bars from the depths of hopelessness.

                                             In The Spirit of Crazy Horse
                                                      Leonard Peltier
