Despite the fact that the United States claims it does not, and never has, imprisoned people for political reasons, the United States has many. Scores of these prisoners are listed by the Jericho Movement. They have been incarcerated for many decades, some for half a century.
Current Movements, Pan-African Community Action (PACA), Stop Police Terror Project, Black Alliance for Peace, the Institute for Policy Studies, and Eaton Workshop are teaming up to screen the film Let The Fire Burn about the 1985 MOVE bombing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by the Philadelphia Police Department that killed ten people, including four children and destroying 65 homes in the neighborhood.
Watch the film collectively on Vimeo at 6 pm. Then join the dialogue on Zoom from 7:30-8:30 pm about the film, MOVE, and a broader issue of US political prisoners with featured panelists:
