The truth will only be heard at the Rotunda on July 15th if it falls out of the sky.
Sadly, I will be unable to attend what will surely be a day of enlightenment and hardy revolutionary ardor, I do have some questions that I would like to be answered.
Why does MOVE force 11 and 12 year old girls to become “married” and impregnated (and not necessarily in that order)?
Why does MOVE threaten the lives of it’s critics?
How is it that an Organization ostensibly dedicated to protecting “life” can consistently be linked to acts of violence?
Why does the group continue to cover-up information pertaining to the murder of John Gilbride?
Of course these are just a few questions one could have for MOVE members, I am sure there are many more that could and should be asked, but something tells me they wont be.
Another question worthy of being asked is exactly why is MOVE again being allowed to use the Rotunda as a forum for recruiting and fund-raising?
The Rotunda is, according to it’s mission statement, dedicated to bridging together the people of West Philadelphia and the greater Philadelphia area with University of Pennsylvania students.
How exactly MOVE fits into this equation is a question to be asked of the “Foundation Community Arts Initiative” which “maintains” the Rotunda and is “supported” by the University itself.
It is a question that I will be putting to the Vice-President Provost herself and I encourage others to do likewise. She is Dr. Valarie Swain-Cade McCoullum and she is the one who oversees the Foundation.
