Our Bad Relationship: The Revolutionary + the Policeman

On May 13, 1985, after shooting 10,000 rounds of ammunition into the house, the Philadelphia police force dropped a bomb on 6221 Osage Avenue. Eleven people died in the resulting fire, including five children and many city blocks were subsequently destroyed . MOVE, the targeted community, are sometimes described as anarcho-primitivists, but self-described as “a family of strong, serious, deeply committed revolutionaries founded by a wise, perceptive, strategically minded Black man named JOHN AFRICA.” Together, we will familiarize ourselves with the incident (a police force bombing its own citizens and citizens arming themselves). But ultimately, we will begin to ask ourselves where we personally land in a brutal spectrum of civic participation that ranges from docility to brutality.
