Photo: Wikimedia[Anglican Communion News Service] Church leaders around the world have offered prayers and messages of solidarity after the series of terrorist attacks in Paris last night which left at least 127 people dead and many more fighting for their lives.“I am deeply shocked by the terrible tragedy which has befallen the city of Paris,” the head of the Church of England’s Diocese in Europe, the Rt .Rev. Robert Innes, Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, said. “I offer my fervent prayers for the families who have so brutally and suddenly lost loved ones, and for all who are struggling with serious injury.“As a diocese we want to express our solidarity with the people of France at this dark time. Acts of terror against innocent people are totally abhorrent. We pray for deliverance from evil and that all the perpetrators and their accomplices are swiftly brought to justice.”In a message to the two Church of England churches in Central Paris – St. George’s in Rue Auguste-Vacquerie and St. Michael’s in Rue D’Aguesseau – the Suffragan Bishop in Europe, the Rt. Rev. David Hamid, said: “Once again violence and terrorism have struck France and the world is in shock. The numbers of dead and injured in the attacks across Paris must make this one of the deadliest of such crimes.“Across the diocese this weekend we will be praying for the people of Paris at this time of national mourning, distress and fear. We pray for all who have died that our Loving God will welcome them into his arms. We pray that God will comfort all who grieve, as well as the injured and the fearful.“And we pray that terrorism may be overcome and violent hearts turned to paths of peace.“In the face of hatred we pray that we may show forth love, and in this time of despair we remember our calling to be lights in a darkened world. May the peace of the Lord be with you.”The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Paris, part of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, was closed on Saturday due to the attacks and as a result had to cancel its Junior Guild Christmas Fair; but officials said that Sunday’s services would take place as usual, with a smaller Christmas Fair taking pace after its 11 a.m. service.“Please come. We need to be together and to pray together,” the Very Rev. Lucinda Laird, dean of the cathedral, said. “Please keep our cathedral community and the city of Paris in your prayers – especially the victims and their families. Most of all, pray for peace.”And, as the Paris attacks were unfolding and the extent of the carnage became known, Convocation Bishop Pierre Whalon took to Twitter (@bppwhalon) and Facebook to update followers and to call for prayer. In a early tweet he wrote, “Je prie pour notre ville, les victimes, les forces de l’ordre, et nos ennemis. Rejoignez-moi: Seigneur, prend pitié.” (“I pray for our city, the victims, law enforcement, and our enemies. Join me: Lord, have mercy.“)Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby described hearing of the “desperate news of deep tragedy.” In a Tweet as the situation was being played out in the French capital, he spoke of the many broken hearts, and said: “We weep with those affected [and] pray for deliverance and justice.”Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, urged “all Episcopalians and people of good will and faith to pray for those who have died, those who are in harm’s way, those who seek to help in any way; and to pray for us as a human family.” In a video message, he asked people watching to join him in praying the Lord’s prayer.The Church of England has published a collection of prayers for peace on its website: “Compassionate God and Father of all, we are horrified at violence in so many parts of the world. It seems that none are safe, and some are terrified. Hold back the hands that kill and maim; turn around the hearts that hate. Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace – peace that passes our understanding but changes lives, through Jesus Christ our Lord.”Guy Liagre, general secretary of the Conference of European Churches, said that the organization “grieves the loss of life and mourns with all those affected by this enormous tragedy. We pray for the victims, their families and friends, and for the men and women who risked their own lives last night in service to others.”He continued: “These tragic events impels CEC to strengthen our peacebuilding and reconciliation work. We must strive to follow the words of the Psalms – depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.”“We must continue, on the basis of our Christian faith, to uphold our values. We work towards a humane, socially conscious Europe, in which human rights and the basic values of peace, justice, freedom, tolerance, participation and solidarity prevail,” he said, citing the 2001 Charta Oecumenica.In Canada, the Council of the General Synod paused its Friday evening meeting as news of the attacks filtered through. Archbishop Fred Hiltz led prayers for those affected by the tragedy.In Australia, prayers for Paris were said every half hour at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne. “On behalf of Australia’s Anglicans, I express our deepest sympathy for and solidarity with the people of Paris in their fear, pain and mourning,” Archbishop of Melbourne Philip Freier, said. “I greatly fear that in the 21st century events like this are going to become much more common, but they will never lose their capacity to shock.“We pray for comfort for the victims, those who love them and tend them, and for those who are appalled and devastated by these vicious attacks. We pray also that calm and wise leadership will prevail, especially in the face of a possible backlash against the innocent. . .“In Australia we have never faced attacks like this, but the danger of coordinated or lone wolf attacks is increasing, as I warned in September. We have to be prepared for this reality. I commend the swift response of the authorities in Paris, which surely saved many lives, and also the endeavours of the authorities in Australia to keep us safe.”The French flag flies at half staff outside St Andrew’s Cathedral, Sydney. Photo: Russell PowellA French flag is flying at half-staff at St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Sydney, where the Prime Minister of New South Wales, Mike Baird, will attend a special prayer service for Paris on Sunday. “It is difficult to comprehend the barbarity of such attacks but we mourn with those who mourn and weep with those who weep”, the Archbishop of Sydney, Dr Glenn Davies, said.“We pray that God in his unfailing love will comfort the people of Paris, especially those who have been injured and the families and friends who have lost loved ones,” he said.The Anglican church in Lille, northern France has opened its doors today “for people to come and pray and seek the Lord’s comfort after a night of events which are horrific to try and comprehend.”— Episcopal News Service staff contributed to this story.

“New” DA same as old DA in Mumia Abu-Jamal case

first_imgAny hope that Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner would hold to his campaign promise to investigate his predecessor’s unjust convictions was shattered Jan. 25 when it was announced he would appeal the Dec. 27, 2018, decision by Common Pleas Court Judge Tucker to grant new appellant rights to political prisoner and journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal. It appears the new DA is the same as the old DAs.The prosecutorial appeal of Tucker’s historic ruling, which followed a nearly two-year court case, pushes back Abu-Jamal’s access to new hearings over injustices in his 37-year-long case, but it won’t stop the fight for his freedom.  Abu-Jamal’s attorney Judith Ritter expressed her disappointment at  Krasner’s decision: “We believe that Judge Tucker’s order will be upheld on appeal. The most fundamental right to due process guarantees that individuals are judged by fair and unbiased courts. We are very disappointed that DA Krasner has decided to challenge the conclusion of an objective judge that Mr. Abu-Jamal was denied this right. Krasner’s appeal only risks delaying our opportunity to make our case to an appellate court untainted by bias.”Abu-Jamal’s attorneys have also notified the court of their intent to file appeals on at least four separate Post Conviction Relief Act challenges previously denied to Abu-Jamal, who has long maintained his innocence in connection with the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.Too much justiceIn a statement issued Jan. 28 on his appeal Krasner writes in part that Tucker’s “opinion has sweeping and, in our view, problematic implications for a large volume of cases, in addition to its effect on the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal.”  His words sound identical to the argument made by former Deputy DA Ronald Eisenberg, a Castille protégé, during the opening hearing on this appeal on April 24, 2017.Closing his presentation Eisenberg argued against how much access to due process Abu-Jamal should receive.  He stated that granting Abu-Jamal’s case would “be a huge impact” on the higher court and “at some point you just have to draw the line.”  Christina Swarns, Abu-Jamal’s attorney at that hearing responded that the Commonwealth’s concern cannot be that Abu-Jamal might receive “too much justice.”By denying Abu-Jamal justice, DA Krasner asks the courts to deny justice to hundreds of other prisoners as well.While Krasner has chosen to narrow his argument to Castille’s role in the case, Abu-Jamal’s appeals can address the underlying issues that Pennsylvania Supreme Court Judge Ron Castille presided over, including the open bias of Judge Albert Sabo, a lifetime Fraternal Order of Police member, who not only sat during the original trial but was brought back to preside over Abu-Jamal’s initial PCRA hearing. There is evidence that witnesses were coerced, pressured into committing perjury or just plain lied on the stand. Evidence that witnesses reported seeing a man fleeing the crime scene was suppressed. Earlier PCRA challenges also addressed questionable ballistics evidence presented by the prosecution in the original trial. Hundreds more buried boxesOn Jan. 18, just weeks after Krasner revealed the existence of six hidden boxes of files linked to Abu-Jamal’s case, a “Supplemental Verification” from the DA’s PCRA Unit revealed that the files from Abu-Jamal’s case were among hundreds of other boxes hidden in the storage room. Whether these additional files were also not listed in the DA’s database bears investigation.Krasner’s office followed up Jan. 22 with a misleading statement, asserting that a search of the newly discovered Abu-Jamal boxes proved that Castille had no personal involvement in the prosecution of Mumia as a Philadelphia district attorney. Krasner’s statement glaringly made no mention of the other boxes, nor did he acknowledge that Tucker’s Dec. 27 ruling granting relief to Abu-Jamal was based on Castille’s public observable bias, not just his signature on papers. The Philadelphia DA’s office and police department have long histories of corruption and misconduct. Investigations of the Abu-Jamal case by journalists David Lindorff and Patrick J. O’Connor revealed that one-third of the police officers involved in collecting evidence in the 1981 case were subsequently convicted and jailed for corruption and tampering with evidence to obtain convictions. Countless cases, including that of formerly imprisoned Hip-Hop artist Meek Mill show these practices continue to this day.“Upon taking office Krasner was subpoenaed to release a ‘Do Not Call’ list of 29 cops too tainted to testify in court trials,” said Mumia supporter, professor/filmmaker Johanna Fernandez in a Jan. 25 press release. “Former DA Seth Williams had a list of 77 dirty cops. The list of police scandals that disproportionately impact Black and brown communities goes back decades. In 1979, the Department of Justice investigation concluded that the level of tampering with evidence and homicidal violence against Black and brown detainees by Philly Police ‘shocks the conscience.’ Additionally, Prosecutor Joe McGill hid evidence in the original Abu-Jamal trial — the presence of a fourth person at the crime scene.”The DA’s office reported that the six boxes in Abu-Jamal’s case contained “police paperwork, discovery materials, cassette tapes, trial preparations and jury selection notes, Internal Affairs files, PCRA preparation notes and materials, etc.” This is evidence potentially favorable to the defendant that could reveal the extent of the police, judicial and prosecutorial frame-up. A court order from Judge Tucker issued Jan. 14 gave Abu-Jamal’s attorneys access to review the contents of the six boxes.  Justice demands that the contents of all the hidden boxes be fully disclosed to respective defendants. These discoveries cry out for an independent people’s investigation into decades of improper practices by the Philadelphia DA’s office.Pam Africa, spokesperson for the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, said in the same press release: “Mumia has been inside 37 years for a crime he didn’t commit, 28 of those were spent caged on death row — a sentence obtained unconstitutionally, which is why he’s in general population today. We are demanding that the charges be dismissed and he be set free. What is happening to Mumia is happening to thousands of people in Pennsylvania prisons.” The nearly two-year-long appeal, the unending protests, calls and letters about the case, and recent revelations of hidden files have served to greatly increase public awareness of this case. News of the possibility that the current appeals could result in his freedom even reached primetime television Jan. 22 on the popular sitcom “Black-ish.” Someone asks Dre, the character played by Anthony Anderson, “Why so happy? Did they just free Mumia?” Dre responds: “No, but I’m doing my part to make it better.”The current legal battle in Abu-Jamal’s case has now opened the pursuit of justice in his case and that of many others. The genie is out of the bottle, and no amount of legal maneuvering by Krasner will put it back!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Call for charges to be dropped after cyber-dissident Wang Dejia is freed

first_img News Organisation March 12, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders welcomes the release of cyber-dissident Wang Dejia on 12 January but is surprised he still faces charges of “inciting subversion of state authority,” which were brought against him after his arrest on 13 December.“It is rare for political prisoners in China to be freed while they await trial,” the press freedom organisation said. “Wang’s release suggests that he is not facing a jail sentence. We call on the authorities to drop the charges against him. His detention seems to have served no other purpose than to try to intimidate him.”Wang, who is better known by the pen-name of Jing Chu, said he thought the authorities freed him because of the international campaign for his release. He said they asked him not to post any political articles or comments online “attacking party or state officials” or “inciting subversion of state authority.” He added that he accepted these conditions “temporarily” in order to “maintain his chances of being able to write again another day.”Wang was arrested because of articles he posted on the Minzhu Luntan ( website in which, inter alia, he criticised the way the Beijing Olympics are being organised.

County into line with many progressive jurisdictions that have recognized there is no need for individuals to sit in jail cells simply because they are too poor to post bail,” Garcia said.“Too many people lose jobs and homes while their families suffer simply because they are poor. During this pandemic, waiting for trial in jail can be a death sentence. No person should face these consequences, particularly not when they are charged with crimes after exercising their constitutional right to protest against police violence.”Anzoategui said the decision was timely.“I am particularly excited that this decision was made right now when we have so many people who participated in peaceful protests potentially being held in jail because the state’s `zero bail’ policy does not apply to them even though they are only charged with non-violent, non-serious offenses,” Anzoategui said.“We can’t forget that we’re fighting two pandemics, racism and COVID- 19. By reducing the jail population we’re helping reduce exposure to COVID-19 which is widespread in the jails and is even more serious and harmful to people of color.”The Bail Project National Revolving Bail Fund provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals who are legally presumed innocent, and whom a judge has deemed eligible for release before trial contingent on posting bail.
