    Christmas Eve Solidarity with Rev. Pinkney

    in Politics Progressive

    December 15, 2014 should go down as the day when criminal injustice reigned supreme. Rev. Edward Pinkney was sentenced to 2.5 to 10 years in prison for alleged election fraud and Gov. Don Siegelman was denied his freedom while waiting for his appeal hearing on January 13th.


    Ben Ptashnik and Andrea Miller speak with activists and supporters of Rev. Edward Pinkney and former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.


    This Christmas Reverend Pinkney will not be home with his family. He has been sentenced for up to 10 years in Prison on trumped up political charges because he has stood up to the 1% against the Whirlpool Corporation in Benton Harbor.


    He is in effect a political prisoner. Please stand in solidarity with Rev Pinkney and his wife Dorothy.


    Don Siegelman was the extremely popular Democratic Governor of Alabama; there was talk that he could be a contender in the 2004 Presidential primary and stop the Republican takeover of the South. Karl Rove and his operatives knew they had to stop Don Siegelman and they went to extraordinary lengths to destroy his career.

    Dr. Harris & Dr. Kennedy Why Is Rev. Pinkney Going To Prison For 10 Years

    in Politics Progressive

    "Here, Whirlpool controls not only Benton Harbor and the residents, but also the court system itself. They will do anything to crush you if you stand up to them. That's why it's so important to fight this. I'm going to fight them until the end. This is not just an attack on Rev. Pinkney. It's an attack on every single person that lives in Benton Harbor, in the state and around the country." - Rev. Edward Pinkney


    On December 15, Rev. Edward Pinkney, a leader in the struggle for social and economic justice for the residents of Benton Harbor, Michigan, was sentenced to serve up to 10 years in prison, on the basis of thin circumstantial evidence that a few dates had been altered on a recall petition against the city's mayor, James Hightower. The recall was prompted by the mayor's continued support for tax evasion by the Whirlpool Corporation, the Fortune 500 company and $19 billion global appliance manufacturer, headquartered in Benton Harbor.


    As we wrote last week in depth, the politically motivated prosecution against Pinkney killed the petition to recall Hightower, who many believe would have been ousted due to his ongoing protection of Whirlpool's interests at the expense of impoverished Benton Harbor, which is over 90 percent African-American.

    Robert is joined by activists working to Free Rev. Edward Pinkney of Benton Harbor. Rev. Pinkney was charged with 5 counts of election fraud for allegedly changing dates on petition signatures by an all-white jury. No evidence, no witnesses were presented yet Rev. Pinkney was convicted and sentenced to between 2.5 and 10 years for something that would normally not be a crime. When there is a question about the validity of petition signatures, typically the signatures are simply not counted.

  • "Why Black LIves Don't Matter?"

    in Education

    “Why Black Lives Don’t Matter?”


    In this multi-media presentation Imam Shuaibe will address the recent injustices which have incensed the world of people of conscience across this nation.  He will address not just the judicial branches of the tree of INJUSTICE that black men and women are being lynched on but its ROOTS.


    The potential cognitive dissonance that comes up when you read the title is deliberate. It forces you even on the subconscious level to try to make sense out of it for clarification.


    It seems to affirm that “Black lives don’t matter”.  And it does.  In the sense that the Cultural System has shown that “they don’t matter”.  This address will explain “Why?”


    It also asks the question, in an “ebonical” manner, kind of like the “slave asking his master” – “Massa, Why Black Lives Don’t Matter?”


    It can also be read like an arrogant white supremacists, like Taney, the Chief Justice in “The Dred Scott Decision”, who is insulted by the very suggestion that “Black Lives Matter”.  His reply would be an exclamation not a question - “Why, Black lives don’t matter!”


    In his decision he said,  “Blacks are regarded as beings of an inferior order, .. unfit to associate with the white race ..so far inferior that they have no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”

What does this say about race relations in America? What should the religious community be doing in response to it? What are the theological lessons that we could learn from the situation?

    Political Prisoners: Do Elected Officials Use Jail To Silence Opposition?

    in Women

    Rev. Edward Pinkney, Pastor of God House of Faith in Benton Harbor, Michigan and President of BANCO, is a hard working activist who found himself in an unexpected place. Jail.


    Toni Meekey Stith, Chicago community activist working with Families of Those Wrongfully Convicted and candidate for Alderman of the 34th Ward, found herself also in an unexpected place. Jail.


    Both recognize trumped up charges placed against them which seem to originate from those whose positions of authority they are threatening with their public activism.


    We like to believe that America is a democracy where people are treated equally under the law but recent events have made it clear that this is not so. Many are outraged that those in "low income" communities tend to be arrested and jailed more often than those from affluent communities. But what about the injustice against those working people who are targeted simply because they dare to challenge those in authority? Sometimes those in power will become cruel and ruthless if threatened with the loss of a political position. Is jail being used as a tool by some in authority to silence their opposition?

    Pinkney to Pinkney We are in a war with this Country, a group of killer's

    in Politics Progressive

    This country job is to remove and destroy families through the use of the criminal justice system. The struggle that has taken place in recent years in Benton Harbor is a case in point, and one holds a number of lessons for the American people. The fight in Benton Harbor is a war over whether Americans will have prosperity and democracy,, or live in poverty under the heel of open corporate rule.
