Tonight we will welcome human rights activist Efia Nwangaza and Jihad Abdul-Mumit.
Jihad Abdul-Mumit, a former political prisoner, is the National Chairperson of The Jericho Movement, which filed a complaint about political prisoners in the United States with the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination at the United Nations. The Jericho Movement identified nineteen former members of the Black Panthers remain in prison following unfair trials who were targeted by the FBI’s illegal counter-intelligence program which worked with law enforcement agencies across the country and police departments to assassinate, discredit and/or frame members of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense.

The Jericho Movement also sponsored the trip of Efia Nwangaza who submitted a report to the UN Committee on behalf of the Malcolm X Center for Self-Determination.

Demonstrators have restarted their protests in Ferguson, Missouri in connection to the murder of Michael Brown by Ferguson cop Darren Wilson. Some of those demonstration announced that this is the beginning of a new human rights revolution in the United States.

Political Prisoner Radio is a program that seeks to educate the public on the cases of political prisoners and prisoners of war being held by the United States government.
