The PA DOC has held our comrades captive for over 30 years, for crimes that they are proven innocent. Let’s bring them home…

MOVE is an eco-revolutionary group for black liberation and in defense of all life. There are currently eight MOVE activists in prison each serving 100 years after been framed for the murder of a cop while their house was being raided in 1978. The 9th defendant, Merle Africa, died in prison in 1998. Parole hearings for the rest of the MOVE 9 now occur roughly yearly. Your support can help them get released on parole. -Earth First!
