Announcement :: Police State

Move Press Release

August 8, 2005 marks twenty-seven years of unjust imprisonment for the MOVE-9. Innocent MOVE family members have been kept in prison all these years despite the evidence, despite the facts and despite legal appeals. Officials, like District Attorney Lynne Abraham, have adamantly refused to even consider an investigation into this case, not because she’s sure that the MOVE 9 is guilty, but rather because she knows MOVE is innocent and that she’s the guilty one. She knows that she is knee-deep in the conspiracy to kill MOVE people in August of 1978. It is baseless warrants signed by her when she was a judge in May of 1977 that provided the appearance of justification for the police attack on MOVE in 1978. Lynne Abraham is letting innocent MOVE people rot in prison (one of our sisters was even killed while in prison, Merle Africa), because she doesn’t want to be exposed for the criminal she is, she doesn’t want her role in this vicious conspiracy to be exposed. Anybody (whatever your career, position, social status may be) that can be aware of such wrongdoing and ignore it as if it’s irrelevant, unimportant, needs only to look around them at the condition of the world today to see the result of that kind of apathy. This is NOT a MOVE problem, this is a problem of injustice that affects us ALL. It’s no mystery why this system can go to war and commit mass murder despite the overwhelming opposition of the people; it’s no mystery why police sodomize, rape, torture and viciously murder people across this country; it’s no mystery why innocent people are legally murdered, executed by government despite evidence, confessions from other people. Officials have no respect for the people, the very people they are elected to serve and who pay their salary. We, the people have to make them respect us, thru our actions, thru our work. Words and feelings are not enough, only action moves this system. Lynne Abraham cannot be allowed to walk around like she’s respectable, honest, when we know she’s anything but that. She needs to understand that she’s employed and paid by the people; she’s NOT our boss, we’re her boss and she’s answerable to us. We’re calling on the news media to realize that you’re identity is not in your career choice, you are a human being first and foremost, and as a human being you have a responsibility to use whatever resources you have to expose wrong and promote righteousness. In line with our commitment insure that this government’s conspiracy against The MOVE Organization is NEVER forgotten, we are having a demonstration at the Constitutional Center (5th & Market Sts.-Phila) on Sunday Aug. 7th from 11:00am-4:00pm. We’re also having a press conference in front of Lynne Abraham’s office (1421 Arch St.-Phila.) at 12:00 noon on Monday, August 8, 2005.
