*Delbert Africa Denied Parole; Given 5 Year Hit*

6, 2017

Earlier Today we received word from our Brother Delbert Africa that he 
was denied parole yet again and what is even more sadistic and 
bothersome to us is the fact that Delbert was given A FIVE YEAR HIT. 
Delbert was informed in a meeting today by Parole Board Member Leslie 
Grey of the decision that he would not be paroled . This is the same 
Board Member who has very strong ties to law enforcement officials 
across the state of Pennsylvania . Ms Grey stated again that the main 
reason for denial is due to the fact that Delbert is a threat to the 
safety of the community the same Delbert Africa who PRISON OFFICIALS At 
SCI Dallas APPROACHES REGULARLY and ask to intervene and stop gang 
fights and gang violence IN THE PRISON and he is deemed a threat to safety .

Delbert also stated to Ms Grey that the community is in support of his 
release that's why there are petitions , letters , and phone calls all 
aimed at the parole board in support of parole for Delbert and other 
MOVE Members from members of the community all over the world . So who 
is this community that is threatened ? We will tell you it's the law 
enforcement community who feels the threat and is working in conjunction 
with none other than The Fraternal Order Of Police . Mark Koch a former 
cop and lifelong member of The Fraternal Order Of Police sits on the 
parole board . The connection is there for people to see and people are 
opening their eyes and seeing this . Ms Grey went as far as to boldly 
tell Delbert next time you come back to make sure you have no write ups 
and the recommendation of the prison Delbert has had the recommendation 
of the prison for every parole hearing since 2008 .

The Parole Board has been blatantly pushing this issue of the safety of 
the community since 2008 with our family yet they have done their best 
to sweep under the rug the issue of Former Board Member Randy Feathers a 
known pedophile who had to resign in the wake of his involvement in the 
kiddie porn scandal with disgraced former Pennsylvania Attorney General 
Kathleen Kane . The Pennsylvania Parole Board is indeed ensuring that 
MOVE Members remain in prison and also DIE in prison . We lost Phil 
Africa in 2015 and Merle Africa in 1998 we cannot afford to lose another 
one of our family members . Our next course of action will soon follow 
but we continuing to urge people to sign the petition urging the United 
States Justice Department To Investigate the case of The Move 9 people 
can sign the petition at 

This is a long fight that we are not backing down from and are 
encouraging people to continue in this fight not just for our family but 
your family and friends and the political prisoners and all the men and 
women being done wrong by these parole boards across the country .
