Interview With Rev. Edward Pinkney Who is in Prison
Justice Rally, Benton Harbor
The People's Tribune interviewed Rev. Edward Pinkney, a community activist and leader in the fight against Whirlpool's take over of the town of Benton Harbor, Michigan. Pinkney is incarcerated for alleged probation violations after a judge ruled that his use of Biblical quotes was threatening. After Pinkney's nomination by the Green Party for U.S. Representative, he was moved to a prison far from the media, friends and attorneys.
