She is known by one name.
Say the name, Ramona, and all know of whom you speak. Ramona Africa, of course.
She, like the singer Madonna, is known by one name.
But she isn’t an entertainer. As far as I know, she isn’t known for singing or dancing.
She is a revolutionary. A scarred veteran of May 13, 1985, when local, state and federal cops conspired to bomb and kill MOVE members in West Philadelphia.
Ramona survived, but didn’t escape the flames, the smoke, the deadly fumes, the hatred, unscathed.
Several weeks ago, we learned she was ill, fell into a coma, and was hospitalized.
The woman who hit the ground running, who suffered a foul and unjust imprisonment, who showed an uncanny strength, who up for justice all over the world, has been forced to rest and to recuperate.
MOVE needs your help to support her in this rest and recuperation that she needs.
