In 1978 nine members of MOVE were imprisoned for a blatantly framed murder, they are still imprisoned with their first chance of parole in August 2008.

In 1985 the city of Philadelphia sort the 'final solution' for the MOVE 'problem' by attacking their home with 10,000 rounds of ammunition, tear gas, water cannons and finally a bomb that burnt 60 homes to the ground.

6 MOVE adults and 5 children were burned to death. Ramona managed to escape with one of the children. She was sentenced to seven years for 'riot'.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is a MOVE supporter who also has also experienced the injustice of the system whilst spending over 26 years on death row for a crime he did not commit.

Come and hear about all these events and see the MOVE documentary narrated by Howard Zinn.
