In May 2018 Janet, Janine, and Debbie Africa all will be making yet another appearance before The Pennsylvania Parole Board. In 2016 all three of the women were denied parole and given a two year hit, despite having excellent conduct records, home and employment plans, and once again the recommendation of the prison administration for parole. The Move 9 have been eligible for parole for ten years now, all of them with the recommendation of The prison Administration of their respective institutions. 99 percent of inmates in Pennsylvania are paroled when given the recommendation of prison officials; however The Move 9 are not included in that 99 percent .
For a ten year period from 2008 to 2018 The Pa Parole Board has carried out the plan of this government and that’s to punish MOVE and to ensure that MOVE Members die in prison . We have seen the example with the murder of Phil Africa during the parole process and THEIR CONTINUED PLAN IS INDEED FOR THE REST OF THE MOVE 9 TO DIE IN PRISON . Despite the fact that Governor Wolf has made changes to the parole board under public pressure we are not fooled over the fact that he has Social Workers, Counselors, etc on the board. These people are still under the orders of The Fraternal Order Of Police, who are calling the shots On MOVE and parole bottom line .
The Fraternal Order Of Police has not only played The Main Role of our family being denied but the overall court process of parole being rescinded for political prisoners across the board . Sundiata Acoli was ordered to be paroled by court order. Police unions challenged this all the way to higher courts to keep him from being released and they were successful. Veronza Bowers was due to be released on mandatory Federal Parole in 2004 only to have the gates closed on him due to intervention by The Fraternal Order Of Police. Most Recently Herman Bell was granted parole in New York State but police unions have interjected and now parole may be rescinded .
At this point people should have no illusions about this system being fair and wanting to do right by people. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and work even harder; as we do not have an official date for the parole hearings for our sisters, we are starting to let the parole board know our feelings on this. On Monday April 9th we are asking people to contact The Parole Board and Stress That we want immediate parole for The Move 9 Sisters. Based on their records and accomplishments they are perfect candidates for parole and this is what we want people to stress for
