National Day Of Action Demanding Clean Water In Pa Prison'S

WATER IS LIFE 
FROM FLINT TO STANDING ROCK TO PENNSYLVANIA PRISONS 

NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION DEMANDING CLEAN WATER IN PA PRISON'S 

Since August of 2016, Mumia Abu-Jamal and other Inmates at the State Correctional Facility in Mahanoy, Pennsylvania, have been plagued withunsafe drinking and bath water. 
For several months now, inmates have complained about brown, oily water in both the showers and the faucets of their cells. This has been an on-and-off problem from August 2016 to this very day. One of the inmates at SCI Mahonoy, Lorenzo Cat Johnson, when asked of the matter, statedthat one week the water seems good and another week, when run, the water seems to go from the color gray to the color brown.
As recently as last week in a conversation with MOVE Political Prisoner Edward Africa, Eddie was asked what he did for water and he stated that he obtained his water from a hot water filter that was on his cellblock. So other than the alternative to obtain a little water from a hot water filter, men are being forced to shower and wash in brown water. Eddie stated that the only time inmates can get bottled water is when they are on a visit in the visiting room. All the while, prison staff are being provided bottled water at SCI Mahanoy and are being told not to drink the water because it's unsafe
Mumia Abu-Jamal, who is suffering from a very serious skin condition due to Hepatitis C, is required to take specialized baths in the prison infirmary, but has not been able to take these baths due to the water hazard. Grievances have been filed on this matter, but to no avail--the water situation has not been resolved.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

On March 1, 2017, we are calling for a National Day of Action aimed at both Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and Department of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel.
The power is in the hands of the people; the only way to make these officials respond is through massive public pressure, so we are upping the ante.

From 9 am to 12 noon, we are calling on people to callfax, and tweet theoffice of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf.

From 1 to 3 pm, we are calling on people to call, email, and tweetDepartment of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel.

(2) An environmental Protection Agency testing othe water at both SCIMahonoy and SCI Frackville

Michael Africa Sr Denied Parole

Back In 2014 Our Brother Michael Africa Sr  went  before The Pennsylvania Parole Board and was as expected denied parole . What was even more sinister with this parole denial was the fact that Michael was given a five year hit . One of the reasons cited was that Michael was considered a threat to the safety of the community at large . Back in 2015 Michael had appealed this denial and was granted an appeal hearing that took place in August of 2016 . None the less after a six month wait mike was finally given word that he was again denied parole . We know that Michael was given a one year hit the reasons for this denial hasn't been cited yet but as usual we know the forces behind his denial .

A couple of weeks ago we brought to people's attention the background of Mark Koch one of the newest members of The Pennsylvania Parole Board. We exposed in full Mr. Koch's lifelong career in Law Enforcement and the Special Role he has played with The Fraternal Order Of Police . We exposed to people the danger in having someone of such a long storied background in law enforcement voting over the potential release of  parole for Move Political Prisoners . Mr Koch was one of The Parole Board Members who recently voted against parole for Michael as was to be expected . The Fraternal Order Of Police no longer have to lobby against parole for The Move 9 now that they have one of their members in place on the Pennsylvania Parole Board to do their work .

From 2012-2014 A former Board Member Randy Feathers voted against Parole For The Move 9 stating in their denial's that they were a risk to the safety of the community.Randy Feathers resigned from his position from the board  due to himself being involved in the recent kiddie porn scandal with recently convicted disgraced former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane . A man that's a risk to the safety of every child in the communities safety stated that our family risks a threat to the communities safety and cannot be paroled.
By the ending of the month our course of action will begin in the meantime we are asking people to Sign And Share the petition we have aimed at The United States Justice Dept calling for a civil rights investigation into the case of The Move 9 . People can sign the petition at https://www.causes.com/campaigns/92454-free-the-move-9.

The Move 9 , The Fraternal Order Of Police , And The Pa Parole Board

The Justice And Accountability Campaign is still in full swing and is still going strong . We have dedicated 2017 to exposing and working around the puny excuse that The Pennsylvania Parole Board has used to so called justify denying parole for MOVE members in prison . The Excuse the past four years has been in the words of The Pennsylvania Parole Board  Parole Denial Reason cited The Risk To The Safety Of The Community At Large . Earlier This Month we talked on and exposed the character of Randy Feathers a former Board Member And Known Pedophile who resigned from The Pennsylvania Parole Board in the wake of the kiddie porn email scandal with disgraced now former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane .

This Will be an issue that we will continue to expose as time passes but in the meantime we want to talk further about The Fraternal Order Of Police and their connection to The Pa Parole Board . Since The Beginning of this campaign we have exposed the connection between Law Enforcement and their ties to The Parole Board  Randy Feathers , And Lloyd White were both Former Police Officers that were not only on The Parole Board but voted against parole for The Move 9 . Leslie Grey Another Board Member with ties to Law Enforcement and who is still on The Board has voted against parole for The Move 9 . Which we have said from the beginning is a conflict of interest to have former police officers who are now parole board members voting over the hearing of inmates whose case revolves around the murder of a police officer .

On June 15th 2016 The Pennsylvania Senate Confirmed Mark D. Koch as the newest Member  Of  The Pennsylvania Parole Board . We just want to provide People with a little background information to who Mark D. Koch is and his VERY STRONG TIES to Law Enforcement . In 1980 Mr Koch started as a Police Officer with the Department Of Defense from their in 1998 Mr Koch was elected to The Board Of The Pennsylvania State Fraternal Order Of Police as their treasurer . In 2004  Mr Koch was elected to two terms as State President Of The Fraternal Of Police representing more than 40,000 law enforcement officers . After his two terms were completed he then went on to serve as Director Of Legislative Affairs For The Fraternal Order Of Police until 2012  and also included in his long storied resume of Law Enforcement is that Mr Koch is a graduate of The Pennsylvania State Police Northeast Municipal Police Officer Training Academy .

It has been clear for quite some time now the role of The Fraternal Order Of Police and not only their public outcry against any form of release for our political prisoners .  You can look into the actions with The Fraternal Order Of Police In New Jersey and how they were able to work within the courts and have a court ordered parole release for one of our political prisoners overturned . Look at another political prisoner in the federal prison system who has been held twelve years now past his maximum release date due to the influence of a The Fraternal Order Of Police over The United States Justice Dept And The Department Of Homeland Security . New York State where not only does The Fraternal Order Of Police Lobby AGAINST  parole for New York State political prisoners but in fact they have an active member who sits on The board In the form of Sally Thompson .


So this is nothing new it's just now being exposed to the public thru this campaign . In 2018  Delbert Africa , Edward Africa , Janine Africa, Debbie Africa , and Janet Africa will be making yet another appearance before the parole board . The issue of Mark D. Koch poses  the strongest conflict of interest as per his background he is coming in with a vote against parole already decided against parole for our family . As we watch the Trump Administration put things in place for complete global dominance The Fraternal Order Of Police, The Pennsylvania Parole Board, and Philadelphia Officials have already set things in place to ensure that MOVE MEMBERS die in prison .  All of this has occurred under the watchful eye of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf who has made hypocritical cries about their needing to be reform within The Parole Board yet he has watched The Fraternal  Order Of Police time and time again be the decision maker with our families parole denials .

In The Month Of February there will be a course of action to follow all of this in the meantime we urge people to share and sign the petition we have aimed at The United States Justice Department Urging Them To Investigate The Case Of The Move 9 . People can sign the petition at https://www.causes.com/campaigns/92454-free-the-move-9.

The Move 9 And The Safety Of The Community

Ona Move 

The Fight in exposing The illegal parole denials of The Move 9 at the hands of The Pennsylvania Parole Board is still in full swing . During the respective 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2016 parole denials of The Move 9 The now main reason that has been cited for The Move 9 being denied parole is this bogus issue of them being an issue to the safety of the community at large . This is the only issue that The Parole Board can use at this point cause we have taken away every excuse they have had and have in fact exposed them on so many levels in which they could not afford to have exposed to the public .

The Issue of Responsibility/Remorse had to be taken off the table because our family would not admit guilt to a crime that they have maintained their innocence now for 39 years.  Akai Gurley , Sandra Bland, Anthony Baez , Michael Brown , Gideon Busch , and people from all across the country have been MURDERED by The Police and these same Police who have MURDERED citizens are still walking the street and are the REAL Threat to the community  and not innocent MOVE Members  who have been unjustly denied parole since 2008 despite the FULL support of the community .

Since the Pa Parole Board is on the subject of community safety let's by all means speak on the issue of community safety and The Pa Parole Board having a known pedophile on their board for a period of time .  In October 2014 Pa Parole Board Member Randy Feathers resigned From The Pa Parole Board amid being involved in the kiddie porn email scandal that now has Disgraced former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane facing prison time.For. A two year period Feathers received 400 emails related to kiddie porn as he worked for the office of The Attorney General of Pennsylvania .

From 2012 to 2014 Feathers who also has not just pedophile credentials on his resume but is also a former police officer voted against parole for our family also citing the issue of the safety of the community .  Governor Tom Wolf and The Pennsylvania Parole Board has a lot of explaining to do and having him resign by no means is ENOUGH . What greater threat to the safety of the community and the children of the communities safety than to have a known pedophile in it and one that holds such a high position in office. It has been proven through their example our family is no threat to the communities safety .

This just further exposes how  dirty and corrupt this system and it's officials are and the character of The Pa Parole Board's background of Law Enforcement and now Pedophilia. This isn't just about our family but it's about your family too the fact that your children is being kept in prison due to the nature of the crime or their failure to show remorse based on the opinion of smut peddlers and legalized killers casting judgement knowing Dam well there hands are dirty . People don't have to take our word for this people can just go to the internet and google The Name Randy Feathers Pennsylvania Parole Board .


There will be a course of action that will follow in the next couple of days aimed at Governor Tom Wolf and his character and his new appointees to the parole board .
In the meantime we are still urging people to sign and spread the petition we have 
Aimed at The United States Justice Department Urging them to investigate the ongoing
And wrongful imprisonment Of The Move 9. People can sign the petition at https://www.causes.com/campaigns/92454-free-the-move-9. We would like to reach 
A Mark of 10,000 by May 2016 so we got work to do .
