The talk was attended by around 50 people. It began with a screening of the MOVE documentary and was followed by a questions and answer session. Recordings of parts of the Q&A session will be uploaded later.

The first piece is in response to a question asking for clarification on what is meant by MOVE when they speak of THE SYSTEM. Specifically the question was posed around whether they specifically referred to capitalism. The answer, if I were to dare to summarise it, was that any form of EXTERNAL government, is THE SYSTEM although Romona also spoke of the fighting the system within our own heads which I guess would still refer to external constraints we have internalised.

The answer was basically that people needed to know what happened but I was reminded of a recent article on indymedia about intimidation by the Police Forward Intelligence Team, and how our re-actions to this or other police provocation often results in us disrupting our own plans. This was concept was reinforced at another stage in the Q&A session when it was revealed that MOVE was not 'recruiting' or 'expanding' as it was concentrating solely on securing the release of it's family members.
If MOVE have pledged to commit all their efforts in this way for as long as any one of their members remain imprisoned, surely the authorities have won and have a strong incentive for always having MOVE members in their jails?
