Repression and Resistance, Then and Now
Lecture and Reception with
Ramona Africa of the MOVE Organization

Flyer here.

Ramona Africa is international spokesperson for the MOVE organization, a revolutionary back-to-nature organization whose main belief is in life. This organization has experienced violent repression at the hands of the government, with nine members– known as the MOVE 9– incarcerated for a crime it is obvious they did not commit. In 1985, Philadelphia police dropped a military-grade bomb on MOVE headquarters, killing six adults and five children. Ramona is the only adult survivor of that attack.

Ramona will speak about the nature of political repression and resistance as experienced by members of the MOVE family, including Mumia Abu-Jamal, and how these threads run to the prosecution of the RNC 8 and others. A reception will follow.
