Philadelphia Anarchist Black Cross ‘Running Down the Walls’ 2020 Documentary

Short documentary from Hate5Six on the ‘Running Down the Walls’ 2020 event organized by the Philadelphia chapter of the Anarchist Black Cross.

This amazing video was made by hate5six for Philly ABC.

See all of the former political prisoners from the MOVE organization in one place and so much more!

Film description:

Over the weekend I was invited to document Running Down the Walls 2020 in Philly, an annual 5K held in cities and prisons across the US in solidarity with prisoners. This was the first time all surviving MOVE 9 were together in 40 years, and Chuck Africa spoke publicly for the first time since 1978 about the importance of supporting women inmates. I also interviewed Russell Shoatz III, the son of incarcerated Black Panther Russell Maroon Shoatz, and met Dadaji Odinga, whose father Sekou Odinga, I learned was a Black Panther who spent 33 years in jail for his role in helping Assata Shakur escape prison in 1981.
