At this moment there are dozens of protestors standing outside the front gates of Camp Hill, headquarters of the Department of Corrections of Pennsylvania, right outside Harrisburg. Pennsylvania Secretary of Department of Corrections, John Wetzel, refuses to meet with protestors claiming “you do not have an appointment.” Of course, he is refusing to give an appointment to anyone who is trying to help Mumia access proper health care. Call the Dept. of Corrections (DOC) and demand Mumia be seen by an independent diabetes specialist doctor (Endocrinologist) and a Dermatologist, for a useful examination. DOC doctors with little diabetes experience are the ones who misdiagnosed Mumia in the first place and continue to neglect him and refuse a diabetic-appropriate diet for Mumia (they keep giving him pasta to eat! instead of fruit and vegetables). They are trying to kill Mumia through medical mistreatment. Call John Wetzel, Dept of Corrections at 717-728-4109. Email him: RA-CRPAdocSecretary@PA.gov. Spread the word.
At this very moment Pam Africa, Ramona Africa, Johanna Fernandez and many more are outside Mumia’s prison SCI Mahanoy with the same demands–and also trying to visit Mumia. They are very visible and effective, but need phone calls to back them up. Call Superintendent of SCI Mahanoy, John Kerestes: 570-773-2158.
