Rev. Pinkney talks about the Fight for Justice in Benton Harbor
On Saturday, while attending the May Day celebration in Grand Rapids, we had a chance to speak with Benton Harbor activist/organizer Rev. Pinkney.
He talked about what the newly imposed Emergency Financial Manager means for the people of Benton Harbor and what is being done to respond to what he called a “theft of democracy.”
Rev. Pinkney also informed us that there is a demonstration in Benton Harbor this coming Saturday, May 7. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder was invited by the city of St. Joseph to be the Grand Marshall of Grand Floral Parade, which is the biggest yearly event in St. Joseph & Benton Harbor.
People are invited to come and protest the parade this coming Saturday, May 7. People will meet at 11am in front of the Benton Harbor Public Library 200 Wall Street, then march to where the parade is being held.
