DEMAND PAROLE FOR MOVE POLITICAL PRISONERS
CALL ! WRITE!
Chairperson Catherine C. McVey of the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole at (717) 787-5699 and get everyone you can to call.
Demand parole for MOVE political prisoners!
The MOVE 9 are members of the MOVE Organization who have now been unjustly imprisoned for over 30 years for the murder of police officer James Ramp stemming from the 8/8/78 attack on MOVE headquarters. There is ample proof and knowledge that police “friendly fire” killed Ramp and not MOVE as the system wants people to believe.
-No reason why MOVE people should not receive parole.
-They have excellent prison records and have kept down racial and gang violence in prison, helped inmates fight drug addiction, mother & fathers establish relationships with their children on the outside, & have been an overall positive influence on the prison population staff and inmates.
These points can be used as well when you speak to Chairperson McVey.
So call this Thursday (early since they are 3 hours ahead) and let's tie up the phone lines in support of the MOVE 9.
If you are a Facebook member, blog about who you speak to and the response on the Cause page for 'Free the MOVE 9' (and join the cause!). This way we can keep track of the lies these people tell and coordinate our response. Network on other sites, such as MySpace, as well.
