Supporting Prisoners: Mumia Abu Jamal

By Payday men’s network

Mumia Abu Jamal and supporter/campaigner Pam Afrika

For many years, Payday has supported Mumia Abu Jamal, an award-winning journalist wrongly convicted of killing a police officer in 1982 in a trial ‘drenched with racism’. Mumia has never stopped fighting injustices inside and outside the prison walls. While pressure got Mumia off death row, the fight continues to keep him alive and free him. We have acted both side of the Atlantic, including helping co-organising a protest in London in 2018 with our sisters in Women of Colour GWS and Legal Action for Women.
