Kevin Price / Abu-Jamal-News.com | "If you look close enough you can see history altered before your eyes. Pick up the latest Guinness Book of World Records, flip to page 123 and you will see what I mean. Under the section 'Cults, Fans and Followers' the police bombing of the MOVE Organization in 1985 is listed as the sixth most deadly mass suicide in recent history…. Yes, you did read that correctly. A deliberate massacre, in which police dropped a bomb on a house, intentionally allowed the fire to burn and shot at those that dared attempt an escape, was labeled as mass suicide," writes MOVE supporter Kevin Price in his recent essay "MOVE's Battle With Guinness."
Price's essay follows a recent Philadelphia Inquirer interview with Ramona Africa, the sole adult survivor of the May 13, 1985 police assault. MOVE has confronted Guinness and is asking people to sign a petition in protest.
Past Philly IMC coverage has documented the long history of media bias towards MOVE, the upcoming Parole Hearings for the remaing MOVE prisoners, interviews with Ramona Africa in 2002 & 2003, and demonstrations in Philadelphia(1, 2). A recent documentary about MOVE (narrated by Howard Zinn) can be viewed online, as well as NBC 10 archival footage.more... 1 Comments
