Watch video <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm3ARQLqFNM>here.

Along with excerpts of archival footage from the Cohort Media 
documentary titled "MOVE", this video features a new interview with 
MOVE member Mike Africa Jr.

Born in prison, he is the son of MOVE prisoners Mike Sr. and Debbie 
Africa, who are both eligible for parole in 2008, after 30 years in 
prison, along with the six other remaining MOVE prisoners. This video 
is the first in a series of videos to be released in the weeks 
leading up to the Parole Hearings in April.

Recently I have written an 
<http://insubordination.blogspot.com/2007/07/attention-move-this-is-america.html>article 
on The MOVE 9 and interviewed journalist 
<http://insubordination.blogspot.com/2007/05/interview-linn-washington-jr-on-mumia.html>Linn 
Washington Jr. about covering MOVE since the 1970s. Also, Ramona 
Africa recently <http://www.phillyimc.org/en/2008/01/44014.shtml>was 
interviewed by Uprising Radio. And of course, there is the 
documentary about MOVE, narrated by Howard Zinn, viewable online at 
<http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?title=428944249&channel=219646953>Brightcove 
or <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNnbfnukU_c>You Tube. MOVE's 
website is onamove.com

This April parole hearing is SO important. Letters and calls to the 
Parole Board now can really help.

The eight remaining prisoners are Janine, Debbie, Janet, Delbert, 
Mike, Phil, Eddie, and Chuck Africa.

It is probably a good idea for folks to send letters to each of the 
nine Board members. The chairperson was appointed by Ed "1985 Bomber" 
Rendell so don't count on her getting your message to the whole 
Board. Their individual names are on this web page:

Letters can all be sent to this address:

[name of Board member], Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, 
1101 South Front Street, Suite #5100, Harrisburg, PA 17104-2517, tel: 
(717) 787-5699

Please send copies of the letters to Phil Africa at:


William Phillips Africa #AM-4984, SCI-Dallas, 1000 Follies Rd., 
Dallas, PA 18612

Stay tuned for more information and coverage in the coming months!
