Harbor Shores Demonstration Reported by WSJM FM/AM and WNDU-TV

Andrew Green Reporting
Benton Harbor activist Reverend Edward Pinkney says that his plans for a mass demonstration to protest the Harbor Shores development on the day of its grand opening are coming together. Pinkney's hoping as many as five-thousand people show up on August tenth...although he'll be happy with a few hundred. Speakers from out of town have been invited in for the day, and protesters will march from city hall over to Jean Klock Park starting at ten AM. Pinkney says that he's disappointed that Harbor Shores isn't creating more jobs for Benton Harbor residents:

Pinkney's also planning to protest at Lake Michigan College on the night of the golf course's grand opening. An event is planned there with Jack Nicklaus and others coming to town for the day.
