Parole hearings begin for Philadelphia’s MOVE 9

As Ramona Africa reports, this week, the MOVE 9 women were interviewed by the parole board in Philadelphia, while the men are still awaiting their interviews. Following a press conference at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building, an online petition was delivered to the Parole Board, which urged the board to grant the remaining eight MOVE prisoners parole after 30 years in prison. MOVE is asking supporters to continue contacting the board until the final decision. Local writer David Love wrote in this week’s Black Commentator that the MOVE 9 “have been exemplary prisoners, and should be released. But many would argue that they should not have been imprisoned in the first place.”
