A bullshit move by MDOC has Rev Pinkney removed from his supporters and shipped to the U.P. . We will get out on an Overpass over the freeway and then march through Mexicantown. We are hoping to be able to park around the 555 art gallery at 2801 Vernor URGENT: Call MDOC Director to Urge Rev. Pinkney's Safe Return Down State On Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 6am, without notice to him or his family, political prisoner Rev. Edward Pinkney was transferred from Lakeland Correctional Facility in Coldwater, MI, to Kinross C.F. in the Upper Peninsula. The next day he was transferred to Marquette Branch Prison in Marquette, MI--nearly 500 miles from his wife and supporters in southern MI. Call Michigan Department of Corrections Director Heidi Washington to express your concern about Rev. Pinkney's safety and to urge his return down state. Here's a script you can use or adapt: "My name is _______ and I'm calling from __________. I'm calling about Rev. Edward Pinkney, ID #294671. On Tuesday he was suddenly transferred from the Lakeland facility to Marquette, 500 miles from his family. I am concerned about the Reverend's health and welfare. He needs to be brought back down state where his wife and attorney will be able to visit him while his appeal continues." Phone number: 517-241-7238 (Sandy Simon, Director Washington's assistant) Try to call during business hours, ideally on Friday, 10/9. If you're not allowed to speak directly to Director Washington, leave a message with her assistant. We do not know why Rev. Pinkney was transferred. We do know that transfers require the trial judge's permission. Please send letters to: Marquette Branch Prison Rev. Edward Pinkney N-E-93 #294671 1960 US Hwy 41 South Marquette, MI 49855 Please donate at http://bhbanco.org (Donate button) or send checks to BANCO: c/o Dorothy Pinkney 1940 Union St. Benton Harbor, MI 49022 http://www.bhbanco.org/2015/10/urgent-call-mdoc-director-to-urge-rev.html http://www.facebook.com/events/195006320830911/
