Screening of MOVE Documentary with Ramona Africa

The MOVE organization welcomes the public to a screening of "MOVE: Cohort Media" with a Q&A featuring Ramona Africa. This documentary focuses on the Move Organization and the repression they suffered from the racist and brutal policies of the Philadelphia police department and the US justice system during the 70s & 80s. Ramona Africa is the sole adult survivor of the May 13, 1985 massacre of 11 members of the MOVE organization. The FBI and the City of Philadelphia dropped a C4 bomb on MOVE's 6221 Osage Avenue home in West Philadelphia. Carrying the young Birdie Africa (the only other survivor) with her, Ramona dodged gunfire and escaped from the fire with permanent scarring from the burns. November 19th 1515 S. 4th Street Philadelphia, PA 19147 (Grindcore House) 7pm

What a beautiful, courageous lady with a truly revolutionary, humanist spirit! She has kept the torches of truth about police oppression against truth-tellers alive. The MOVE massacre alone shows that we live in a blatant, remorseless police state that needs a nation of Ramona Africas to ensure freedom once again. Ramona Africa for President.
