Thirty years ago, the second violent confrontation between the city of Philadelphia and the back-to-nature group known as MOVE ended with five children and six adults dead.

On Wednesday, May 13, the anniversary of the assault and fire that tore through 61 homes, a commemoration rally will be held by members of the MOVE family at 62nd St. and Osage Avenue.
