Statement by legendary Detroit activist General Gordon Baker: The Rev. Pinkney's victory in the courts of Benton Harbor marks a great triumph for the trade union movement as a whole in the U.S. and particularly for the social movement throughout the state of Michigan and the whole country. Clearly, it was in the interest of Whirlpool Corporation to silence a voice like Rev Pinkney so the property Whirlpool needed could be acquired with little opposition.

Rev. Pinkney accelerated the struggle against corporate control of our lives and offers new hope for the people of Benton Harbor.
