a partial POLICE STATE UPDATE & VIDEO recommendations (pg9 Days of Action 2012 booklet)

a partial POLICE STATE UPDATE

The Police state has leapt forward in the last year on every level. At the federal level we now have unmanned drones flying over our cities and states courtesy of the CIA. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2012/0616/Drones-over-America.-Are-they-spying-on-you

We have the codification in law of indefinite detention without trial. When the current president signed the NDAA National Defense Authorization Act he signed a law that would allow for the arrest and indefinite detention of citizens without trial.   http://www.aclu.org/blog/tag/ndaa

The government had been doing this to the undocumented for years in detention centers run by ICE in the U.S. and by the CIA and Military abroad. http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1620097/pg1

We have the Justice department conspiring with local government to deprive patients of their life saving medicine. The Hummingbird dispensary was driven out of business and the city still will not permit others to fill the need for cannabis based treatments in the community.

The local government has gone to the extreme of further criminalizing sleep in the summer of 2012, making it a misdemeanor to sleep outside in the city.

They were following in the footsteps of the county board of supervisors that had used a phony emergency to outlaw dissent at the courthouse. 

The county action was a reaction to their inability to respond to the issues exposed by Occupy Eureka. The District Attorney and other county government conspired to create a climate of fear about the protest and then used violent repression to remove the people temporarily from in front of the courthouse. http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_20271861/humboldt-supervisors-enact-urgency-ordinance-protest-hours-limited?source=pkg

The county refusal to address the problems that the Occupy Movement planted on their doorstep is why the police state thrives. http://www.humboldt.edu/ccrp/total-population-below-poverty-level-redwood-coast-region

In what might be the most egregious affront the City of Eureka has hired Murl Harpham to be the police chief. The hiring is illegal. He is over 65 and has worked for EPD for more than 25 years. Both require his mandatory retirement. He is also When a local activist came to the council meeting to bring this criminal act by the city to the attention of the public she was censored on the public access broadcast and the city website.

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.

Mumia Transfer (Dec 14, 2011)

ONA MOVE, Everybody!  We've received news that Mumia has now been transferred to SCI-Mahanoy, another prison in Pennsylvania.  He is in "Administrative Segregation", he is not in general population yet. We need to let those administrators know, immediately, that we know Mumia is there and that the WORLD is watching.  People need to flood the prison with calls and flood Mumia with postcards (Mumia needs to know that we have his back). ----Ramona

Urgent Update On Mumia Abu Jamal, Dec 8, 2011

On Wednesday December 7, 2011 District Attorney of Philadelphia, Seth Williams, accompanied by Maureen Faulkner, announced at a press conference that he was not pursuing another hearing to reinstate the death penalty for Mumia Abu Jamal.

This means that Mumia is now sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

There is already talk about him now being moved into general population.

Some people may celebrate this as a victory but MOVE is not under any illusions about these treacherous officials, we ain’t fooled one bit by their deviousness. We see this latest decision for exactly what it is- A devious tactic to kill Mumia in a so-called different way.

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.

Great Film Centered around Mumia Abu-Jamal- FRIDAY, July 3rd, Eureka

 

Come see this film at PARC's new location!

 

"In Prison My Whole Life"  is a well done documentary inspired by a man who was born on the day that Mumia Abu-Jamal was arrested.  Mumia has been a political prisoner, on death row, for over 27 years, now.

The filmmaker does a great job talking with people about (researching) racial injustice and the Prison Industrial Complex and giving a thorough run down of the frame-up that has had Mumia on death row since 1981.

 
Mumia is facing execution and we can't let it happen!!
