Last week, death row journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal <a 
href="http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2008/07/08/18514629.php">filed an 
appeal</a> of a March 27 US Third Circuit Court ruling that <a 
href="http://www.abu-jamal-news.com/article.php?name=tct">rejected his 
bid for a new guilt-phase trial</a>.
<p>

On the 4th of July in Philadelphia, over 75 supporters of Abu-Jamal 
gathered at the Liberty Bell, including NYC rappers <a
