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

We still need 100 good people to donate $10 each to BANCO's Legal Defense Fund. In August 2008, Rev. Edward Pinkney was sentenced to prison in Michigan from a Berrien County Court that was judiciously biased in its verdict and extreme in its sentencing. Rev. Pinkney's attorney and the ACLU have filed an appeal on this decision and are awaiting court documents. In the meantime, Rev. Pinkney and BANCO truly need local, national, and international support.

You can help rectify the injustices in Benton Harbor and, particularly, against BANCO leader Rev. Pinkney as they fight alongside local and statewide residents to promote economic and social justice in this community. Please make a contribution to the BANCO Legal Defense Fund so we can "Free Rev. Pinkney!"

Use the "Make a Donation" button on the BANCO homepage for PayPal, or mail your check or money order to:
BANCO, 1940 Union St, Benton Harbor, MI 49022

Your $10 will help:

1) Support the right of Benton Harbor citizens to take a stand against a corrupt political and judicial system;

2) Free Rev. Pinkney from Ojibway Correctional Facility as a political prisoner living in horrible conditions!;

3) Defend our friend and colleague Rev. Pinkney who was imprisoned after an unjust trial on trumped-up charges (several witnesses were paid to falsely testify against him);

4) Fund the appeal to have Rev. Pinkney's erroneous conviction heard before a higher court;

5) Defend the right of Benton Harbor residents to speak out against injustice without intimidation and reprisals (two key witnesses for the defense were arrested and imprisoned);

6) Stop the disenfranchisement of Benton Harbor voters (a valid recall election was overturned);

7) Support BANCO's fight against brutality and sexual harassment by police;

8) Improve the conditions in a community with 90% unemployment and under-employment (material aid is needed);

9) Challenge economic and racial apartheid in the U.S. today;

10) Spread the word as we join with others worldwide--like Danny Glover, Ed Asner, Howard Zinn--calling for justice in Benton Harbor. Together we can make a difference!

Thank you!
