Stephen Vittoria, director of “Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary”, speaks with Mumia Abu-Jamal on: Edward Snowden; Mumia’s recent visit w/Chris Hedges, James Cone, and Cornel West; the release of “Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary” on DVD; and the forthcoming book “Murder Incorporated: Empire, Genocide, and Manifest Destiny” currently being written by Vittoria and Mumia.
I am sitting in the visiting area of the SCI Mahanoy prison in Frackville, Pa., on a rainy, cold Friday morning with Mumia Abu-Jamal, America’s most famous political prisoner and one of its few authentic revolutionaries. He is hunched forward on the gray plastic table, his dreadlocks cascading down the sides of his face, in a room that looks like a high school cafeteria. He is talking intently about the nature of empire, which he is currently reading voraciously about, and effective forms of resistance to tyranny throughout history. Small children, visiting their fathers or brothers, race around the floor, wail or clamber on the plastic chairs. Abu-Jamal, like the other prisoners in the room, is wearing a brown jumpsuit bearing the letters DOC—for Department of Corrections.

When Barack Hussein Obama takes the oath of office, he will receive more than the reins to the executive office of the U.S. government; he will inherit the rulership of empire, one that no American consciously voted for.
