MOVE: Confrontation in Philadelphia is a fast-paced, independently created documentary film of the events in the late seventies which lead up to the Philadelphia police arrest of members of nine MOVE members, who are currently serving a 30-100 year sentence. The video journalists reveal the complex relationship of media bias, police harassment, and subtle economic motivation in the violent removal of MOVE.

Come to court in Philly Thursday 7/8 for the hearing on murder charges for the 1985 bombing

From info@freemumia.com:

The MOVE organization is informing people that there is a hearing in Room 504 of the Criminal Justice Center at 9:00 am on Thursday, July 8, 2010 before Judge Frank Palumbo.  This hearing is on the private criminal murder complaints that we filed against officials for murdering our family (men, women, babies and animals) in the May 13, 1985 bombing of our home.  Prosecution officials, including the recently elected first Black District Attorney of Philadelphia, Seth Williams, have never held these murderers legally accountable for murdering our family members so we filed murder charges.  Seth Williams denied them so we are now in Common Please Court. 

We're encouraging everybody to attend this hearing and pay attention to what happens because this doesn't only affect MOVE people, it affects everybody that has never gotten satisfaction or justice when their loved ones have been murdered by cops. 

Join us on the 8th and let our unified voices be heard in the righteous demand that official murderers be held legally accountable for their crimes in the same way that cops demand that anybody they even think murdered one of their own be held legally accountable.

The Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition NYC is travelling to Philly this Thursday
in support of MOVE's filing of charges against top Philly officials responsible for the bombing of MOVE's home in 1985 and the killing of 6 adults, five children and many animals.  No Philly official was ever indicted, let alone convited, for this historic crime against innocent individuals, who happen to be Black and who happen to oppose everything this government stands for.  Be there this Thursday if you can.  We must let these criminals know that we will not forget and will not forgive the very governmental structures that continue to perpetrate horrific crimes by keeping the MOVE 9 in prison (the very crimes the 1985 MOVE protests were about) and continue to fight for Mumia's execution.

Call 212 330-8029.  We are planning to arrive in Philly in time for the 9:00 am hearing.
