Publically-Owned Space is NO Place for those who Preach Racism & Violence

Tonight, on the 30th anniversary of the murder of Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, the National Constitution Center, which is federally subsidized and sits on National Parks Service land, has rented a room to a group that advocates the VIOLENT overthrow of the U.S. Constitution for the purposes of giving a convicted cop killer, Mumia Abu Jamal a forum to call in from his prison cell.
Not only is this yet another insult to widow Maureen Faulkner, but the fact that the staff at the NCC doesn't realize that it is not obligated to rent space to an organization that actively advocates for the overthrow of our society, shows you just how far we have fallen as a nation of laws and decency.  As many know, Mumia's supporters, as seen from the below link, stem from the National Black Panther Party, New Black Panthers, and MOVE; which advocate racism and are directly responsible for the murders of two Philadelphia Police Officers as well as the 2008 voter intimidation case.   
Please call Governor Corbett at (717) 783-1116 to tell him that, as a PA voter and taxpayer, you are OUTRAGED by this racist group being hosted on public space on the land that our forefathers used to build this great nation. 
Also, you can contact Ms. Ashley Berke of the National Constitution Center at (215) 409-6693 to ask her why they would rent this room to a group supporting cop-killers and racists.

Join Cornel West, Immortal Technique, Vijay Prashad, Michelle Alexander, Ramona Africa, Mark Lamont Hill and many others on the 30th year of Mumia's wrongful imprisonment.
