Pennsylvania Gov. ED RENDELL Keeps MOVE 9 Locked Up Almost 33 Years!

ONA MOVE!  The MOVE Organization wants to take this opportunity to point out yet another example of the blatant prejudice of government officials when it comes to MOVE. Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell just commuted the life sentences of three men convicted of murder in the 1970s. The reason he gave is that these men were not the ones that actually pulled the trigger in the murder, they were “accessories”.  In the case of the MOVE 9, however, Rendell was the district attorney who charged and prosecuted 9 of our MOVE sisters and brothers for the murder of one cop who was shot with one bullet from one gun. MOVE women never had weapons charges on them and nobody including any police officials could say that *any* MOVE person shot and killed Policeman James Ramp.

Toy Soldiers, by Mumia Abu-Jamal 12/17/11

According to recent news accounts, shattered and shredded body parts and remains of U.S. servicemen were found in a landfill.

 

Despite political spins, this sobering image is a telling, true-life metaphor for what those in power really think of soldiers, many of whom are but boys and girls freshly loosed from High School.

 

May 13, 2011: 26 years since government bombed MOVE family

ONA MOVE, All!  As I'm sure you all are aware, May 13th is close at hand, and of course we never let it go by without reminding folks of the bombing and murder of our MOVE family that day in 1985.  We plan to rally and distribute info/ updates on the four corners of Broad and Chestnut Sts. in Philly on Saturday May 14th from 12:00pm til 3:00pm.  It's always good to get out there with the people to talk to them and pass out info.
