    A Sidney Street Parallel..Only Worse

    The day my Grandmom died (May 13, 1985), this was big news in Philadelphia's Powelton Village neighborhood.

    I remember driving a cab part time and seeing the MOVE members on occasion hassling neighbors with bullhorns.

    Later on in the day, Osage Avenue was destroyed by fire.

    ***********
    The Move property on Osage Avenue had become notorious for its abundant litter of garbage and human waste and for its scurrying rats and dozens of dogs. Bullhorns blared forth obscene tirades and harangues at all times of day and night. MOVE members customarily kept their children out of both clothes and school. They physically assaulted some neighbors and threatened others.

      The Sidney street siege was filmed, and a new colourised version was included in the channel 5 series Edwardian Britain in colour.
