24 March 2001 (ROCHESTER, NY, USA) -- Groove Embassy Records is thrilled to announce that more than 1100 people have downloaded "Freedom of Speech," a hip hop single by Buddha Mind that was inspired by the case of jailed journalist and activist Mumia Abu-Jamal.

People from all over the globe have taken a trip to www.grooveembassy.com to hear the music, read about Mumia and join in the struggle. Groove Embassy Records is only a small player in the movement, but with the help of Refuse & Resist!, the worldwide network of IndyMedia Centers, the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal (ICFFMAJ), and others, we're reaching a large audience.

"Freedom of Speech" is also available as a CD single that features the haunting original mix, with Spee*D Gnot on the mic and music by J.Q.Public, and the synthcore remix by Chicago mixmaster Clark Tetris.

** No one associated with Groove Embassy Records or Buddha Mind will receive a penny from the song. All profits go directly to the ICFFMAJ's organizing fund for Mumia. **
