Dedication to Merle Austin Africa


In the early hours of Friday, March 13, 1998, renowned MOVE political prisoner Merle Africa died under what MOVE has said are “very suspicious circumstances.”
For their bravery and determination to maintain their beliefs under incredible pressure, we dedicate this issue of The Fire Inside to Merle Africa and to the other MOVE women who are still inside: Debbie, Janet and Janine Africa.
We must always stand together, fearless and unified against any intruder who tries to take our lives, our families, or our freedom. - Merle Africa, Move organizer, died in prison 1998
