On May 13, 1985, the Philadelphia police bombed the home of MOVE members and murdered 11 people. Ramona Africa is the sole adult survivor, and has been organizing on behalf of the dead and imprisoned ever since.
In this interview with Ramona Africa, conducted on the 24th anniversary
of the May 13, 1985 police bombing of MOVE headquarters, Ramona shares life lessons about freedom, standing up for oneself and one's family, being true and honest with ourselves and our principles, and her concept of 'total revolution' - all learned through enduring violent repression, maximum prison terms, and decades of community

MOVE is a revolutionary organization based in Philadelphia, advocating peace, justice, respect for all life, and revolution, for over 35 years. Ramona was the sole adult survivor of the 1985 police bombing, which killed 6 adults, five children, and numerous animals.

This is an astounding historical conflict between grassroots organizers and the
state, and is entirely relevant to today. I highly recommend checking out their website,, and reading more elsewhere from the plethora of articles, about the numerous full-out assaults on MOVE members. As Ramona describes in this interview, it is truly mind-blowing that 8 people remain in prison for 31 years now, for a crime they did not commit.

Check out their website, learn about this important history, and consider what you can do to help get the remaining MOVE prisoners out of prison.
