Quote of the Week

"...the "right" to a fair and impartial jury of our peers; the "right" to represent oneself; the "right" to a fair trial, even. They're not rights; they're privileges of the powerful and rich. For the powerless and the poor, they are chimeras that vanish once one reaches out to claim them as something real or substantial. Don't expect the media networks to tell you, for the can't, because of the incestuous ness between the media and the government, and big business, which they both serve."
-- Mumia Abu-Jamal

The quote taken from the Preface to
Live from Death Row. Published 1995 by Avon Books.
