Inmates all

Among the people that I send out my warmest greetings to this New Year are three men, all victims of unfair political play.

Binayak Sen, the doctor and activist who has been given a life sentence on charges of aiding anti-national forces.

Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks who finds himself framed on charges of sexual misconduct.

Mumia Abu Jamal, a journalist and activist and former member of Black Panthers. who is now in his 27th year of imprisonment was wrongly convicted for the murder of  a Police Officer, Daniel Faulkner.Mumia Abu Jamal has been sentenced to death.His is a case that shouts hoarsely about the politics of race in America.
