Note: Due to circumstances beyond our control, this show is rescheduled to May 20, 2015
In this show we interview Ms. Ramona Africa in regards to the MOVE incident and going forth. May 13, 2015, is the 30th anniversary of the MOVE fire. How different is our world from then?
In her biographical statement, Ms Africa says, I am Ramona Africa, Minister of Communication for The MOVE Organization, former political prisoner and the sole adult survivor of the May 13, 1985, government bombing and massacre of MOVE.
I am also a representative of The International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu Jamal (a Black journalist that’s on death row in Pennsylvania) but most importantly I am a revolutionary, a freedom fighter.
I am 59 years old and have been in The MOVE Organization almost 34 years now. I spent 7 years in prison because I survived the 1985 bombing; I continued my fight for freedom while in prison and when I came home in 1992.
The work continues til this day with the priority being to gain the release of my MOVE family known as The MOVE 9, they have been in prison 37 years now. Two of The MOVE 9, our sister Merle Africa was murdered in prison by officials in March of 1998 and our brother Phil Africa was murdered in prison in January of 2015.
Ona Move—Ramona Africa
Tune into this fascinating show on Calming the Anger Storms Radio.
In this show we present two very compelling speakers. Both speakers have lost their only sons to the escalating rate of homicide in Philadelphia. The murders were both in January 2015, only a few blocks apart. One murder victim was African American, the other was Latino.
Two young men one aged 38 and the other 24 lost, leaving children, parents, and extended friends behind.
Our guests are Mr. Wilfedo Rojas and Mr Bernard Ray Sr. These fathers will discuss their anguish and pain. Then they will discuss how they have decided to deal with this anguish.
These fathers have joined forces to form a survivors group like none other. From an online Radio Show to an audience with Pope Francis. These fathers are leaving no stone unturned.
Hear their compelling stories
Admittedly, the quality of the show may not be the best. However, the compelling nature of the show draws one to listen.
