Support Rev. Edward Pinkney
Rev. Edward Pinkney’s trial starts on Monday, Oct. 27, 8:30 am.
Activists from Detroit will be going to Benton Harbor on Monday, Oct. 27 to stand with Rev. Pinkney as they (the local rulers and Whirlpool Corp.) bring him to trial on phony charges after his successful petition drive to recall the mayor. They admit they have no evidence but count on an all white jury to convict this African American fighter for justice. Yes, that’s right – an all white jury, despite the fact that Benton Harbor is 96% African American.
Moratorium Now has chartered a bus to support Rev. Pinkney on the opening day of the trial which starts at 8:30 am in the Berrien County Courthouse.
- The bus ticket is $20 per person but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
- The bus will depart from Lot C in Northland Mall, 21500 Northwestern Hwy, Southfield, just off of J.L. Hudson Drive. Lot C is behind Hudson’s. The Lot C sign is on a pole at the parking lot. Please park all vehicles away from the building. The parking is free and has been authorized by the Head Security of Northland Mall. You can park your vehicle in that area.
- Bus leaves 5 am SHARP. Please arrive at 4:30 am.
- The bus will return sometime after 8pm.
For more information or to reserve a bus seat, call David Sole at 313-680-5508 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you leave your name be sure to leave your contact info (on voicemail or email).
If you can’t go, please make a donation to Moratorium NOW Coalition, 5920 Second Ave., Detroit, MI 48202, to help someone else who wants to go but can’t afford the fare.
