Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

Trial is this coming Monday, Oct. 27, 8:30am

Rev. Edward Pinkney, the community activist from Benton Harbor, has been bound over 
for trial on false charges. Rev. Pinkney is facing prosecution on five counts of election 
fraud which are felonies, as well as six misdemeanors. If found guilty he could be 
sentenced up to twenty-five years in prison. It's Berrien county's 3rd try to imprison the 
Rev.

There is absolutely no evidence that Pinkney did anything wrong. The petition dates could have been changed by election clerk Carolyn Toliver, Mayor James Hightower (Lowtower), or Berrien county sheriff deputies.

Rev. Pinkney did not change a date.

The fight continues. Rev. Pinkney is just one man, who, like many others, will not fall under pressure;  it will only strengthen him.

The battle in Berrien County continues against the corrupt politicians, local government, and Whirlpool Corporation who have staged a complete takeover of Benton Harbor.
    
The tug of war continues.

Cynthia McKinney on the Persecution of Rev. Pinkney

Former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney wrote: 

Why is the Congressional Black Caucus silent on the persecution of Benton Harbor leader, Rev Edward Pinkney, who is being maliciously prosecuted AGAIN?  What has happened up there in DC to eliminate all heart, backbone, and guts? What's left without that???

Pinkney's trial, Mon. Oct. 27. No victims, no evidence.


Rev. Pinkney's trial begins on October 27, 8:30am. The charges are voter fraud - five felonies of forgery of a recall petition with no victims and no evidence. The judge and the prosecutor stated tha in Michigan evidence is not required in order to go to trial. The prosecutor presented no direct evidence or indirect evidence.  Pinkney is potentially facing many years in prison when there has not been a crime committed by him.

The attack on democracy and justice in Benton Harbor shows that the corporate power structure is determined to crush anyone who stand in it's way. It is part of a process under way across America in various forms. Democracy has been stolen from the people. Water rights have been stolen.  Poverty is growing. We the people have nothing in common with
the billionaires, their corporations, or government. We must stand together for a new America.     

Our challenge today must be to create discomfort in the house of the powerful around the nation, with or without violence, with an appeal for freedom, justice, equality and understanding. There are too many poor people in a nation so wealthy.  Today we are not free and we are not equal. We have expanded the disparity gap between those who live in surplus and those who live in poverty.

An economic system that doesn't feed, clothe, and house its people must be and will be overturned and replaced with a system that meets the needs of the people. The unfinished business will require both courage and risk.  It will require sacrifice.  We must dream above the clouds of doubt and fear. We must continue to fight until discrimination and poverty no longer exist.

Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten anything by appealing to the moral sense of the oppressor.  

The struggle that has taken place in recent years in Benton Harbor is a case in point, and one that holds a number of lessons for the American people. The fight in Benton Harbor is a war, not a conflict;  it is a war over whether Americans will have prosperity and democracy or live in poverty under the heel of open corporate rule.

Let's make this struggle a victory for all who are victims of the economic crisis in every city, town, and state in America.
