FROM PARIS TO PELICAN BAY by Kiilu Nyasha, February 2001

In behalf of two of our most treasured prisoners of war -- Mumia Abu-Jamal
and Leonard Peltier -- we visited seven European cities in ten days and
spent our last four days in Paris where a major demonstration happened on
December 2, 2000. A letter from one of the longest held political prisoners
in the country (37 years!), Hugo L.A. Pinell (Yogi) awaited my return from
Paris. I thought to myself, if I could travel all over France for Mumia and
Leonard, I could make it to Pelican Bay to see Yogi again.
