On the morning of April 20, Mumia came out of surgery, and his lawyers were told that the procedure was successful. Later that evening, Mumia called his wife Wadiya, had a good conversation, and Wadiya says that he sounds strong! While Mumia recovers during the next few weeks, we must keep building public pressure to ensure that Mumia gets the best possible treatment.
On April 20, the United Nations Human Rights Council issued a report condemning the hospital bed shackling of Mumia. Please cite this UN Statement and demand that Mumia not be shackled while recovering at the hospital!We are demanding that the hospital officials and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections do the following immediately:
1) Mumia must not be shackled to his hospital bed during his recovery.
2) Let Mumia speak with his Family.
3) Let Mumia speak directly with his physician Dr. Ricardo Alvarez
4) Let Mumia speak with his spiritual advisor Dr. Mark Taylor
5) Provide the appropriate rehabilitation plan for his recovery
The next days, weeks, and months will be critical in Mumia's recovery.
The conditions of his confinement contributed to his heart disease. He was held in isolation solitary for over a year, never able to exercise. Limited to walking in his very small cell. He was allowed off his block rarely. These were due to the covid restrictions.
As he recovers he MUST have access to his physician, exercise and a heart health diet.
