Noam Chomsky on Mumia Interview by Hans Bennett, 2002 Abu-Jamal-News.com In early October 2002, MIT Linguistics Professor and anarchist, Noam Chomsky visited Philadelphia. The first day here he spoke at the University of Pennsylvania about the war waged on Iraq and the rest of the Middle East by the United States. During the question and answer session, I asked him about Mumia Abu-Jamal. The next day Noam spoke about the media at a church in Center City. Afterwards I asked him about the post Sept. 11, 2001 political repression.
