Mumia Abu-Jamal hospitalized in diabetic shock, guarded, family and friends denied access
March 31, 2015

This interview by the Block Report with Professor Johanna Fernández was recorded this morning, March 31, at about 8 a.m. PDT. Stay updated by visiting Bring Mumia Home and Johanna Fernández’ Facebook page.

Update as of Tuesday evening: From Mumia’s attorney Bret Grote of the Abolitionist Law Center: “Yesterday morning, March 30, Mumia Abu-Jamal was rushed to the hospital after passing out at State Correctional Institution (SCI) Mahanoy. He was admitted to the Schuylkill Medical Center with a blood sugar level of 779. Today, he received visits from his wife, Wadiya, and his brother, Keith Cook. Mumia’s blood sugar had dropped to 333 as of a couple hours ago. This is still elevated and at an unhealthy level.

“Mumia does not have a history of diabetes but had been experiencing a series of symptoms that should have alerted medical staff at the prison to the onset of the disease. Instead, he was not given comprehensive diagnostic treatment and a medical crisis emerged that could have resulted in his slipping into a diabetic coma or worse.

“Prison officials only relented and permitted visitation under immense public pressure from all over the world. Keep it up. If the prison had its way, nobody would know Mumia was hospitalized, nor would they have permitted visits or the release of any medical information to his family.

“Family and friends are not leaving Pottsville. Mumia is not out of danger and we will remain vigilant and mobilized. The state keeps trying to kill Mumia – spied on by the FBI since he was 15, shot in the chest and severely beaten on Dec. 9, 1981, framed for a killing he did not commit and put on death row, held in solitary confinement under threat of execution for 30 years, and now denied competent, basic medical care.

“He is alive because the movement has fought like hell to make it so. The government of the united states of apartheid can never be trusted to protect the rights or respect the lives of Black people or those held in prison. Never forgive, never forget. Stay alert and ready to act.

Free Mumia!”

Professor Johanna Fernandez of the Bring Mumia Home campaign notes: “Mumia has been complaining about being ill since January. If he had gotten the proper care he needed originally, he would not be in this situation. This crisis illustrates the problem of health care in American prisons as a basic human rights violation. I am personally concerned because Phil Africa of the MOVE organization was rushed to the hospital not long ago in good health and a few days later he was dead. We need to fight to defend Mumia’s life, and that of all prisoners.”

Update: Supporter Professor Victor Wallis writes at 12:10 p.m. PDT: “Mumia’s wife and his brother were both finally allowed brief visits with him. He is still in intensive care at the hospital in Pottsville. He is conscious but sedated. His blood sugar had shot up high enough to almost produce a coma, but has now been partially brought down. He is heavily guarded and is shackled to his bed.”

Most importantly, he adds, “The immediate demand now is for his case to be reviewed by doctors representing his family.” Please call the numbers below, which have been corrected and updated.

Imprisoned journalist and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal has been taken to the Intensive Care Unit of Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, after he was removed from prison for a medical emergency without any notification to his family, friends or lawyers.

Abu-Jamal’s longtime friend, Professor Johanna Fernández of the Bring Mumia Home campaign, said she only learned he had been transferred when she went to visit him Monday morning at SCI Mahanoy after worrying that he had sounded sick when the two spoke by phone last week.

“Upon arrival I was told I could not see him,” Fernández told Democracy Now! “We were told he was in diabetic shock and taken to the hospital.”

For the past three months Fernández says Abu-Jamal has complained of suffering from an “extreme eczema outbreak” and described his skin as “akin to that of an elephant.”

“He tried to access whatever healthcare was available to him and it was woefully inadequate,” said Noelle Hanrahan, producer of Prison Radio.

Abu-Jamal’s brother and next of kin, Keith Cook has traveled from North Carolina to Pottsville, but so far has been denied access.

Prison authorities say they refuse to comment on inmate medical conditions or hospitalizations, and a hospital official said he had no information about Abu-Jamal.

Abu-Jamal was convicted in 1982 of killing of a Philadelphia police officer, but has long maintained his innocence and is one of the world’s most famous political prisoners.

Supporters say hospital staff has confirmed Abu-Jamal is in the ICU. They think he is being held in a private room that has the curtains drawn and is under armed guard. No updates have been given on his condition. They remain extremely concerned and are asking for people to call authorities and request that his family be allowed to see him.

“Taking prisoners to outside hospitals is not standard operating procedure,” Hanrahan noted. “You have to be extraordinarily sick.”

Demand Mumia’s family’s hospital visitation rights

by Prison Radio

At 1 p.m. EST on Monday, March 30, Mumia Abu-Jamal had a medical emergency and was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, Penn.

SCI Mahanoy prison officials are blocking all family visits at Schuylkill. Mumia’s family is currently waiting at Schuylkill. We have absolutely no trust in prison officials to provide transparency on Mumia’s current condition to his family. Just weeks ago, prison officials said Phil Africa was fine, and three days later he passed away.

Please make these calls (the names and numbers have been updated and corrected) now to demand that Mumia’s case be reviewed by doctors representing the family:

Pennsylvania Bureau of Health Care Director Chris Oppman, 717-728-5311 (an activist says he’s personally answering this number and that he has replaced Richard Ellers)
Corrections Secretary John Wetzel, 717-728-4109 or ra-crpadocsecretary@pa.gov
Schuylkill Medical Center Superintendent Mark Lory, 420 S. Jackson St., Pottsville, PA 17901, 570-621-5000 (or his secretary, Diane Doyn, ext. 5102)
Mahanoy State Correctional Institute Superintendent John Kerestes, 570-773-2158 (or his secretary, Mary Kay)
Prison Radio, headed by Noelle Hanrahan, has from the beginning recorded Mumia Abu-Jamal’s commentaries, which are now broadcast around the world; produced and distributes the documentary, “Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal”; and is a leader in the court battle to overturn the so-called Mumia Gag Law intended to silence Mumia.

One can not get information on a patient because of HIPPA law.

REALITY: IF WE ARE BLACK AFRIKANS, IT'S NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR ALL OF US.

THERE IS A WISE SAYING; ANOTHER PRISONER CAN NOT FREE ANOTHER PRISONER.

What do the above mean? As long as we on the outside remain a prisoner in our minds, we can not help free self and those behind prison walls.

As long as we are not free critical thinkers, not lien holders of our once Divine Original Super conscious mind, only conformist to evil concepts and ideas, we cannot free self and others.

In these Dispensations of KNOWING times, our people Spirit/Aura should be like the above, whereas our once Divine right mind-set would set fire to all that is evil.

Our mind thoughts should be able to Free our people behind prison walls. Our mind thoughts should able to tear buildings down, unlock prison cells...and the likes of.

I emailed Noell advocate for Mumia, I emailed her awhile back, and I shared with Noelle that they should advocate for Reparations Now, the key that would unlock all the shackles, chains, nooses...and the likes of that binds our people minds.

BY ANY/ALL/BEST MEANS NECESSARY.

I also asked Noelle to petition the Pope for Mumia release. So far, none of what I suggested has came into existence.

REPARATIONS NOW

A spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections declined to comment on the report. "We never discuss an inmate's medical condition," said deputy press secretary Susan Bensinger in an e-mail.
