Unfortunately, funds are not available for Rev. Pinkney to go to the state courts and ask for a change of venue.

So, his last chance for a fair trial is at 9am on Tuesday Sept. 6 when his atty. will ask the Berrien County Courthouse to disqualify all Berrien County prosecutors from his trial. They have already denied
him the disqualification of Berrien County judges.

If this is denied, Rev. Pinkney is a big step closer to spending 20 years in prison. He has endured a smear campaign by the Herald Palladium and other area media, and now is forced to spend his time and money to defend his actions: standing up for the people of Benton Harbor.

As one middle aged woman said at the last rally, "We can't allow them to lay their hands on Rev. Pinkney. He's the only person in my lifetime who has stood up for the people of Benton Harbor against racial profiling and police brutality."

We need to pack the courtroom to show that Michigan citizens of conscience will come out to look corruption and injustcie in the face, and show the most terrorized community in the state (that we've been hearing about for decades) that we are watching and supporting one of their advocates.
