A massive phone protest by people from around the world and calls for direct protests forced the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections to back down from carrying out the state’s latest attempt to kill MOVE 9 member Delbert Orr Africa.
They could not kill Delbert Aug. 8, 1978, after the brutal beating they gave him and now they want to finish the job before he can come home on parole.
The Abolitionist Law Center and the People’s Law Office are proud to announce that Eddie Africa of the MOVE 9 has been released from state custody after more than 40 years of incarceration.
Thousands of people are losing their lives and livelihoods around our planet – from Mozambique to Missouri – due to intense storms, record wind speeds and massive flooding in areas that should not have been developed and other catastrophes caused by the corporate-for-profit-accelerated climate chaos.
Philly police commenced to tear-gassing the [MOVE] house, shooting up the house, bulldozing the house with people and animals in it, then flooding the house with a fireman’s water hose. Then a cop gets shot, which many believe was from friendly fire.
Janet Holloway Africa and Janine Phillips Africa have been released from state custody after 40 years of incarceration. The sisters have been battling for their freedom after being consistently denied parole despite their stellar record and community service endeavors while behind bars.
