Eighty-Five Years Old: Ramsey Clark A Life Celebrated
Ramsey Clark, Former U.S. Attorney General, international human rights activist
Mumia Abu-Jamal, journalist, activist, political prisoner in tribute to Ramsey Clark said, " when the bombs were being readied for Afghanistan and the White House was swearing vengeance, who dared to stage rallies, predicting disaster? Abu Ghraib, Pakistan, Palestine, drone strikes and wild Islamophobia, fueled by fear & ignorance.
Who opposed these developments at every step?
And as capitalism sent jobs abroad, hollowing out the middle class, causing dystopian heels in inner cities, who spoke out against the rapacious greed of Wall Street and the resultant prison industrial complex and the death industry of Death Row? Ramsey Clark and the organization he helped found in two small rooms of his law office, the International Action Center(IAC) 20 years ago.
That he took some of the toughest cases in the nation and with the IAC, fought some of the toughest battles against the might of the Empire is telling and high tribute.
A final thought: If King were alive today, he'd be a year younger than Ramsey - 84".
