Rage Singer To Address U.N. Group

Rage Against the Machine, Stone Temple Pilots, George Jones, Smashing Pumpkins, Lou Reed, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Coolio, Nirvana...

Rage Against the Machine singer Zack de la Rocha on Monday

will address the International Commission of Human Rights in Geneva, on

the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Abu-Jamal is on Pennsylvania's

death row for the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel

Faulkner -- a crime Abu-Jamal says he did not commit. "Abu-Jamal was

targeted in this case for political and racial reasons," de la

Rocha said in a statement announcing his plans to speak before the U.N.

body. In January Rage Against the Machine, the Beastie Boys and

Bad Religion staged a benefit concert for Abu-Jamal in New Jersey.
