About: MOVE is a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based black liberation group, whose foundation was built on philosophies of black nationalism and anarcho-primitivism, as well as animal rights. The group was founded in 1972 by Vincent Leaphart, a native of West Philadelphia. MOVE members wore their hair in locks, advocated a radical form of environmental politics, and opposed science, medicine, and technology. They regularly held demonstrations against animal cruelty in front of zoos, puppy mills, and any institutional form of enslavement of animals, using bullhorns to propel their ideals. The members were often jailed for their actions. Read more about MOVE here and the 1985 MOVE Bombing here. Read about ex-Black Panther Party member and MOVE advocate, Mumia Abu Jamal here.
