Check out Sis. Fatirah's Fantastic Video of Bro. Ori bringing straight fi-yah on 5/16!:


Update: Eddie Africa was denied parole for TWO more years despite recommendation from his prison! Former Philly Mayor Wilson Goode who dropped the bomb on MOVE in 1985 is now a “minister.” Goode called Eddie’s mother to apologize and ask how to make amends for the bombing. Eddie told his mother to tell Goode to get the MOVE 9 released. Goode called the parole board and relayed that the continuing reason for their denial is because they believe “young violent militants” will be drawn to MOVE. Firstly, that’s true! But they know as well as MOVE does that MOVE isn’t violent and would discourage gang activity. They also know that MOVE would redirect that energy towards fighting the system, which exposes their TRUE fear. This is ILLEGAL and shows the fear and incompetence of the parole board. Use this info as you write letters to the editor and call20in on radio shows. We cannot allow these people to use any excuse they want to incarcerate our freedom fighters. Their only authority is what we grant them. Don’t accept NOTHING from them!

Now is the time to pull together and support the MOVE 9 and their upcoming parole hearings. We are implementing a weekly call campaign every Wednesday to the parole board chairman and board members demanding parole for MOVE political prisoners. A lot of work and support is needed at this crucial time. We need this info to be put on: websites, MySpace pages, Facebook pages, and general e-lists to help spread the word.

The MOVE 9 are members of the MOVE Organization who have been unjustly imprisoned for the murder of police officer James Ramp during the 8/8/78 attack on MOVE headquarters. As Linn Washington stated in20the Cohort Media “MOVE” documentary, there is ample proof and knowledge that police “friendly fire” killed Ramp and not MOVE as the system wants people to believe.

There is no reason why MOVE people should not receive parole. They have excellent prison records, have kept down racial and gang violence in prison, helped inmates fight drug addiction, helped mothers and fathers establish relationships with their children on the outside, and have been an overall positive influence on the prison population, both staff and inmates. These points can be used when you speak to Chairwoman McVey. So call this Wednesday and every Wednesday. Let’s tie up the phone lines in support of the MOVE 9!

Since the prison system insists on having DIN numbers, make sure to have them on hand when you call or write.
