VIDEO: Mike Africa Jr. interview about the MOVE 9 Parole Hearings
By Hans Bennett
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
on The MOVE 9 and interviewed journalist
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
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:
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!
