Free the MOVE 9! Ramona Africa, MOVE Bombing Survivor to Appear on “Solidarity Not Charity” Sunday, March 23rd at 4pm EST

Free the MOVE 9! Ramona Africa, MOVE Bombing Survivor to Appear on “Solidarity Not Charity” Sunday, March 23rd at 4pm EST on www.uhururadio.com

The sole adult survivor of the May 13th, 1985 Philadelphia police and US government bombing attack on the MOVE house, Ramona Africa, will appear on the Uhururadio.com program “Solidarity, Not Charity” this Sunday, March 23rd. Africa and host Alison Hoehne, chair of the Philadelphia branch of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, will discuss the case of the MOVE 9, a group of 8 surviving members of the August 8, 1978 police attack on the organization who are currently serving 30-100 year sentences in prison for the shooting death of Officer James Ramp, from bullets which are widely understood to have been impossible for anyone inside the MOVE house to have fired.

The case of the MOVE 9 is significant because it exemplifies the United States counterinsurgency against the African Liberation Movement through police attacks, imprisonment, and obstruction of justice. The judge in the case even admitted that he had “no idea who killed Officer Ramp,” and there is an overwhelming amount of forensic evidence that proves that no one in the basement of the MOVE house, which was flooded with 250,000 gallons of water by the Fire Department, could have fired the shots that killed Ramp. Despite this evidence, the 9 members of MOVE who were inside the house, Delbert, Mike, Merle, Phil, Eddie, Chuck, Debbie, Janet, and Janine, were sentenced “as a family” by Judge Malmed, to a minimum of 30 years for murder, conspiracy, and attempted murder. Merle Africa died in prison in 1998, under suspicious circumstances, but the remaining 8 members of the MOVE family are up for parole this April.

On “Solidarity, Not Charity,” Alison Hoehne will speak with Ramona Africa about these trumped- up charges, the political history of MOVE in the context of the African liberation movement, and the responsibility of the white community to support the growing movement of African people for self-determination and social justice.
