~Free the MOVE Political Prisoners~

In conjunction with commemoration activities taking place in Philadelphia, PA, Twin Cities Save the Kids and Minnesota Animal Liberation - MAL is arranging this event to honor those from MOVE who died, support those still in prison, and protest our violent, oppressive "justice" system.

~Learn Their Story~

On May 13, 1985, the Black liberation group/family known as MOVE had their home in Philadelphia water hosed, tear gassed, and shot at when members would not give themselves in to the state.

The house was then hit with a C-4 bomb. Eleven human beings, five of them children, died as firefighters stood by refusing to put out the blaze. As MOVE notes, many "innocent animals" with whom they shared their home were also killed in the bombing. MOVE are strong believers in animal liberation, even refusing to kill bugs and other small animals who called their compost piles home.

Currently, 7 members of MOVE (Merle Africa died in 1998 after being denied proper medical care and Phil Africa died in early 2015 under suspicious circumstances at a federal prison in PA) remain political prisoners of the United States. Learn more at their official Web site: http://onamove.com/.
