Let the Fire Burn

The MOVE organization was originally established as a “back to nature” movement that practiced “green” methods. When their methods became more radical, featuring profane bullhorn speeches, unsanitary conditions, and questionable child raising, the group began to draw the attention of the Philadelphia community and the police alike. The conviction of nine members for the third degree murder of a policeman after a shoot-out in 1978 further cemented the group’s belief that the police were corrupt and determined to bring the movement down.
