Mark your Calendars! Sunday, August 5th 2018 we will gather for events to remember the August 8th 1978 police raid on MOVE people & the arrest of the MOVE 9 political prisoners. On August 5th 2018, we will have day full of events including a 5K to Run Down the Walls, co-sponsored with Philly Anarchist Black Cross. The second event of the day will include the Framed in America concert, featuring local artists, such as Seraiah Nicole, Mic Africa, Raw Life Crew and more!! Stay tuned in to this page for our special artist headliner, TBA!!!
These events are to have the whole city, the nation and the world remember the police attack on MOVE people on August 8th 1978. On that day, 9 members of MOVE were arrested and unjustly sentenced to 30-100 years in prison for a crime they did not commit. Police raided MOVE’s Powelton home and used tear gas, thousands of rounds of ammunition, powerful water hoses and bulldozers to destroy MOVE’s home and threaten the lives of MOVE men, women and children, forced to barricade in the basement of the home. After destroying the home, police arrested and brutalized several MOVE adults, including the infamously brutal beating of our brother Delbert Africa, which was captured on live video. This brutality and police violence is part of a system of repression against strong revolutionaries!! A system of violence against black and poor people in America!!
40 years later, the MOVE9 are still confined as political prisoners throughout Pennsylvania prisons, separated from their families and children for decades. They’ve reached the time for parole but have been denied continuously by the parole board. They men and women were up for parole early 2018 and were denied yet again. 40 years is too long!!
Join us as we commemorate the 1978 attack but also continue in our struggle to undo this violent, racist, capitalist system & free all political prisoners!!!
See you in Fairmount park! Spread the word! Ona MOVE
