Rev. Pinkney's Life, Work and Persecution

The Life, Work, and Persecution of Rev. Edward Pinkney
October 29, 2014, 7pm to 9pm EDT, call-in number (347) 857-3293 for "Human Rights Demand" channel on Blogtalkradio

YOU are invited to celebrate the life and work of Rev. Edward Pinkney and object to his wrongful prosecution. Rev. Pinkney is a renowned human rights activist who inspires exploited people to resist oppression in Benton Harbor, Michigan, throughout America, and internationally. He has fought injustice and tyranny for decades and experienced many victories for the People. Rev. Pinkney stands against the marriage of government and corporations as well as aggressive policing tactics, regardless of personal risks. "The Life, Work, and Persecution of Rev. Pinkney" radio broadcast is an opportunity to learn more about Rev. Pinkney and show support as he faces election fraud charges before an all-white jury in Berrien County, Michigan. It was probably no accident that Rev. Pinkney's trial began on October 27, his birthday.

Rev. Pinkney's prosecution stems from his organizing a recall petition for Benton Harbor's mayor, who is perceived to work for corporate interests and not Benton Harbor constituents. Since the prosecution admits there is no evidence connecting Pinkney to election fraud, we must assume that Pinkney is being prosecuted because of his many years of human rights advocacy. Therefore, he is being persecuted as a representative of the People, and the People must respond.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?'" Thousands of Rev. Pinkney's supporters are not able to travel to Berrien County Courthouse to support him this week. It is right for us to unite and publicly support this human and civil rights luminary on radio. Let your voices be heard!

Please limit your statements to two minutes. Please introduce yourself and tell why you support Rev. Pinkney. For example, "My name is Mary Neal. I am director of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill and the Human Rights for Prisoners March. I support Rev. Pinkney because he speaks truth to power and gives a voice to the voiceless. I am grateful for his Sunday radio shows, which he faithfully makes available as a community platform."

Rev. Pinkney and his family will be interviewed during the first 45 minutes of the broadcast on October 29. Guest speakers will include Ralph Poynter, Larry Pinkney, Randy Short, Rozy Wow and many callers from the public who use this opportunity to voice their support of Rev. Pinkney.

We don't have to rely on mainstream media to publish information about Rev. Pinkney's "Life, Work, and Persecution" in a favorable light. Please share the link to Wednesday's broadcast with your contacts, and invite callers to phone in their support for Rev. Pinkney. They will have several opportunities to speak during the broadcast, with two minutes for each caller. Thank you for participating. Blessings.
