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

INTERNATIONAL BOYCOTT OF ALL WHIRLPOOL PRODUCTS!

SPREAD THE WORD WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

Use this letter (there's room to sign your name)

Dear Friend,

The language I'm going to use here may seem too strong, and too unbelievable. It's not. The media in Michigan doesn't report this story, so it shocks people to learn about it.

Apartheid conditions of a very serious nature are occurring in Benton Harbor. The words gentrification and even genocide are appropriate descriptors. Those responsible are at the top of the power structure in Berrien County: Rep. Fred Upton and Whirlpool Corporation. They, along with developers, are stealing property along Lake Michigan and in Benton Harbor for the construction of a major resort, including a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. Obviously, this is all being built for very wealthy white people.

The courts and law enforcement agencies have gone outside of the law for many years, keeping Benton Harbor citizens living in a constant state of fear, convicting and imprisoning countless African-Americans (most of whom are innocent we believe), and driving people out of the area by any means necessary.

We must stop Whirlpool, Rep. Upton, and Harbor Shores developers. We are calling for an International Boycott of all Whirlpool Products to begin May 1, and all stores which sell Whirlpool products. Below are some of the brand names which are owned by Whirlpool.

Of course, you have the freedom to begin the boycott now, but the formal kickoff date is May Day, 2009.

If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Edward Pinkney, 269-925-0001 or banco9342@sbcglobal.net

We appreciate any effort you can make to spread the word:
