ON THE MOVE! This communique is to update people on the status of parole for The MOVE 9. As of now Eddie and Delbert have been interviewed by the parole board.Eddie has been denied parole and was given a 2 year hit (meaning he won't see the parole board again for 2 years). Delbert has not yet received a decision from the parole board but we have no reason to expect anything different. MOVE women are scheduled to be interviewed by the parole board during the week of May 11 tho It is crystal clear that MOVE members are being denied parole solely because officials don't want any more MOVE people on the street and it has nothing to do with them believing that MOVE people are guilty of any crime. They release people that are admitted kidnappers, rapist, drug dealers and murderers everyday without blinking an eye. They know MOVE is none of those things but when it comes to innocent MOVE people, people that officials know are innocent, they refuse to release our family. This year, 2009, marks 31 years that our family has been unjustly imprisoned for the false accusation of murder by the very people who murdered, burned to death MOVE family members, including babies. Now explain to us how these rotten, twisted, contradiction-filled criminals can justify keeping our family in prison. MOVE have been telling people for over 35 years now that this system is rotten, it's twisted and ain't to be accepted by nobody because to accept it is to validate our own suffering. MOVE ain't never gonna accept the injustice, oppression, exploitation of this degenerate system. We've been fighting it all these years and we ain't never gonna stop fighting it, in jail or out. Thanks to MOVE'S founder, JOHN AFRICA, we understand clearly that walking out of those buildings called prison don't mean that you're free. As long as this brutal, sadistic system exist, ain't nobody free, ain't nobody safe. We're encouraging people to strongly and consistently confront the parole board about the continued im-prisonment of innocent MOVE family members but also about their illegal and unjust policies that effects everybody that comes before them and results in their prolonged imprisonment. JOHN AFRICA has taught MOVE people that consistency is strength so we have to keep the pressure on parole board officials even after they make their so-called decisions. We can't rest as long as our family members are unjustly imprisoned so we can't let them rest as long as our family members are unjustly imprisoned. Contact info for the parole board is attached so please make use of it. Also attached is the contact info for each of The MOVE 9 as well as Mumia. Please make use of that too. Oppressors have historically maintained their position because people have allowed them to. People have been tricked by a concept invented by the enemy called legality; a concept created to keep people oppressed by causing people to believe that they have no right to defend themselves from systematic oppression, that they are criminal if they protect themselves from oppression. JOHN AFRICA freed MOVE people from that confusion and gave us the understanding that protecting yourself is not criminal, it's instinctive it's THE Law. In 1776 the so called "founding fathers" defended themselves against an oppressive government and they are called "freedom fighters, heroes". Protect yourself from the system with the understanding that it's your natural right, your obligation (as even stated in their Declaration Of Independence), and the most effective way to do this is to really understand that this system and anybody that defends it is an enemy to life. This is the understanding JOHN AFRICA have given MOVE people and MOVE people are giving to others, through words and example. Don't let your enemy disarm you by destroying your instinct to defend yourself against him. Be strong and never give in to this menace, this monster that we know as the system because that's what those who push this system are counting on.
