Benton Harbor: Oppression like Michigan has never seen

One of the most important court hearings in Michigan
will be held on Aug. 24 at 1pm. It will focus on the
illegalities of Rev. Pinkney's trial. A 12 noon rally
will be the same day at the corner of Riverview and
Main, BH - the Michigan Works building. (There will
be a second hearing and rally on Sept. 21 also
beginning at 12 noon.)

The whole country is needed for support. Corruption
is not only out of control in Berrien County, but in
all 50 states.

It is important for you and your group to come and
support Rev. Pinkney who is undergoing an enormous
struggle for justice in Benton Harbor. It is the
struggle of a lifetime....a man fighting one of the
biggest international corporations presiding over a
county where human abuse is occurring every day.
Abuse which many Americans think can't happen here.

There will be six motions heard on Aug 24:

[1] Motion to dismiss for failure to arraign

[2] Motion for new trial based on ineffective assistance
of counsel

[3] Motion for new trial based on the lack of public

[4] Motion to dismiss based on jury bias [juror
contaminated the jury]

[5] Motion for denial of a fair jury trial under the
fifth and six amendment based
on the denial of the challenge to systematically
underrepresent minorities

[6] Motion to dismiss for failure to allow due process

The poor are forced to fight for a new America, free
of want with justice and cooperation. If
all Americans unite around the struggle of the poor,
their vision of a new world can be won.

We should give Iraq our constitution. It was written
by intelligent people, it has worked reasonably well
for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.
