A Stay for Mumia.


On October 16, demonstrators demanded freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted in 1982 of killing police officer Daniel Faulkner, though Abu-Jamal's supporters argue that he was denied a fair trial. The day before the demonstration, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge had set December 2 as the execution date for Abu-Jamal. On October 26, Federal Judge William H. Yohn Jr. granted a stay of execution while he reviews an appeal by Abu-Jamal's lawyers.
