"Speech re Cologne Germany conference about Iranian Political Prisoners"
Recorded July 9, 2005]

Long live John Africa!
Ona move!

Greetings to the conference in Cologne, Germany, in support of past and present political prisoners in Iran.

I thank you for this opportunity to send word of support for your cause. And as I do so, I'm reminded of my years as a young reporter covering demonstrations in Philadelphia, where dozens and then hundreds of young Iranian students chanted "Down with the Shah!" as they marched down Market Street in the 1970s.

I've often wondered how many of these young people, full of hope and idealism, returned to Iran only to fall to the feudal brutalities of the mullahs.

Over the years I've read occasional articles, usually in the alternative press, about the tortures and vile executions of dissidents in Iran.

I remember interviewing some Iranian students who talked about the viciousness and brutality of the U.S.-trained secret police, the dreaded Savak, who served the Shah with terror against the people.

Who would think that the mullahs, men of God, would imitate--and indeed outdo--the Savak for human carnage. According to some estimates, between July and October of 1988, some 18,000 militant youths, communists and revolutionaries, were exterminated by the new regime. If ever there was any question as to whether or not the Iranian Islamic revolution was a rightist revolution, their actions against dissidents proved it.

Iran, this ancient country, birthplace of different faiths, will survive these dark days. As Persia it was a light to the world. It will be again, for the struggle for liberation, for freedom, for human dignity, goes on.

I join you in believing in that future.
Thank you.

From Death Row, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Ona move!

"When a cause comes along and you know in your bones that it is
just, yet refuse to defend it--at that moment you begin to die.
And I have never seen so many corpses walking around talking about
justice." - Mumia Abu-Jamal
