As we did in 2012 and 2014, we gather to protest in Benton Harbor to #OccupyThePGA & march on the 2016 Senior PGA tournament. Join & share across all your social media! Benton Harbor residents need your support in their struggles against corporate corruption at every level! "It's not one thing, it's everything!" -political prisoner Rev. Edward Pinkney The Senior PGA in Benton Harbor represents: * Gentrification of Benton Harbor and genocide of its Black residents by corrupt Whirlpool Corp...#BoycottWhirlpool * Theft of public parks for poor children in order to make golf courses for rich people--alongside $500K condos, while the majority of Benton Harbor's residents live in poverty and unemployment * Whilrpool's stranglehold on Berrien County politics, media, law enforcement, and civil life * Murder of Benton Harbor residents...Justice for #MartellHadley, murdered in Berrien County Jail in March 2016 * Snyder's corrupt Emergency Financial Manager law which stole democracy from majority-Black cities like Benton Harbor, Flint, and Detroit...#NotOurGovernor #ArrestSnyder * Attack on political activity and dissent through the unjust imprisonment of Rev. Edward Pinkney, still in jail on false charges of changing dates on a recall petition **with no evidence** #Justice4Pinkney For background, see: https://occupythepga.wordpress.com/2012/05/08/breaking-news-press-release-demand-letter-and-statement-from-occupy-the-pga/ http://www.facebook.com/events/199336927110429/
