Knowing the history of opposition to Marineland, as well as the history of opposition to animal captivity, is an important focus of this campaign. 
28 years ago today the MOVE Collective house was bombed by the Philadelphia Police Dept murdering 11, including 5 children.  In the history of the MOVE Collective, predominately known as a radical black liberationist collective, was a long history of protest against vivisection, dog breeding and animal captivity - including campaigns against the Philadelphia Zoo in the early 1970’s.  Their critique of captivity was broad and the tactics they were using to protest against it were way before their time.  Today we remember the MOVE collective, recognize their place in the history of opposing animal captivity, and recognize ourselves that the struggle to free other animals from captivity are never isolated struggles - they are a part of a broader struggle to live freely and to respect all life.  Free the Move 9! Free Mumia!  “All living beings, things that move, are equally important, whether they are human beings, dogs, birds, fish, trees, ants, weeds, rivers, wind or rain. To stay healthy and strong, life must have clean air, clear water and pure food. If deprived of these things, life will cycle to the next level, or as the system says, ‘die’.” - John Africa (MOVE).
