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.

Police Use Cameras To Intimidate Peaceful Demonstrators

Created 11/19/2010  by: Dave Lindorff

Is it news when police photograph and videotape demonstrations?

Apparently for American editors and reporters, making that news judgement depends on where the demonstration occurs and what nationality the police are.

When a hundred artists gathered outside a Beijing courtroom in mid-November to protest the jailing of artist Wu Yuren, who had earlier been beaten by police and jailed because he had gone to a police station to file a complaint against a landlord, the New York Times ran an article by reporter Andrew Jacobs which pointedly noted that police officers had videotaped the crowd, and then quoted a demonstrator, artist Dou Bu, as saying, “I was scared to come out here today, but you have to face your fears.”

MUMIA'S LIFE IN DANGER! New Info: Protests, Rallies, Events

MUMIA'S LIFE IS IN DANGER!

Come out on November 9th 2010 to say:

MUMIA IS INNOCENT !  FREE MUMIA! 
END THE RACIST DEATH PENALTY!


MUMIA ABU-JAMAL faces his likely last court hearing on November 9th, 2010, at the Third Circuit Federal Court of Appeals, in Philadelphia.  This hearing is about sentencing only. 

Why is this happening?

OAKLAND PORT TO SHUT FOR OSCAR GRANT, OCT 23rd! OSCAR GRANT & MUMIA; TWO RALLIES, SAME FIGHT

- An urgent message from the Labor Action Committee To Free Mumia Abu-Jamal -

Please forward, post and distribute widely: * Oscar Grant & Mumia Abu-Jamal - Mass mobilizations*!

TWO RALLIES, SAME FIGHT! Against racism, injustice and official murder of the innocent! PLEASE SCROLL DOWN for full information

 

1. OAKLAND, October 23rd 2010: PORT SHUT DOWN FOR OSCAR GRANT!
Rally: 12 Noon, City Hall, 14th and Broadway

 

OUTRAGE! An Innocent Black Man Shot in the Back by Police and... Killed for No Reason!

 

*Killer Cop Gets Off With Involuntary Manslaughter! * *

 

Photographic Evidence Proves: It Was Murder! *

 

Oscar Grant was a father of a young daughter, a working person in Oakland, and innocent of any crime! He was shot while he was held face-down with his hands behind him, by BART cop Johannes Mehserle!

 

Only because of massive street protests in Oakland, and cell-phone videos of the shooting which made it onto the nightly news, was the cop eventually charged with murder. But after a change of venue to Los Angeles, Mehserle received the lightest conviction: involuntary manslaughter. Oakland's integrated community rose again to protest.

 

ILWU Calls Rally& Port Shutdown!  

With Mehserle's long-delayed sentencing set for November 5th, Local 10 of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), supported by many other unions and local community groups, called for a rally in downtown Oakland for Saturday, October 23rd at 12 noon.

 

And now the longshore membership has voted for a port shutdown as well, to say: Justice for Oscar Grant! Labor Unity With the Community! Jail Killer Cops!

"Operation Small Axe" Film about Police Brutality, Resonates with Communities All Over the Country

Oakland Filmmaker Feels Police Wrath

An Epidemic of Brutality

By LINN WASHINGTON, Jr.         NOV 5-7, 2010

Hours after San Francisco Bay Area radio show host J.R. Valrey screened his documentary film about police brutality at a university in Philadelphia daily newspapers in that city carried articles about two separate lawsuits filed against Philly police alleging brutality.

 

Those lawsuits, filed respectively by a state legislator and a high-profile media commentator (both of whom are black) didn’t surprise Valrey. His travels across America screening his film highlighted for him – again – a reality that governmental officials constantly reject: police brutality is a widespread scourge.
