Troy Davis: a few days later

A few days after the murder of Troy Davis where the murderer was the State of Georgia, in the United States of America we must remind ourselves in the midst of this information tsunami that the social and political framework that killed this man remains untouched and while the man himself is no longer, his cause lives on and is as relevant as ever. Actually, its relevance can only increase for as long as we deal with such matters. 

Listen to another most likely innocent (I personally strongly believe based on the information I have that he was framed and that he has spent decades locked in as a political prisoner) Mumia Abu-Jamal commenting the lessons learned from Troy Davis case. The recording is part of his audio commentary essays which I recommend to subscribe to.

Also a song – a free download at that – by Rebel Diaz and production by Agent of Change aka DJ Mutiny sampling classic Billie Holiday song Strange Fruit as a reference to the true nature of the situation; a modern day lynching.
