As all eyes are on Michigan’s poisoned water crisis, Reverend Edward Pinkney continues to serve a prison sentence for effectively organizing against the first Emergency Manager put into place in the entire country in Benton Harbor, Michigan. There, the Emergecy Manager legally suspended the local city government and appointed himself supreme ruler of the city. Pinkney visited San Jose in 2011 warning us about the dangerous experience just beginning then and now has created the humanitarian disaster in Flint.
We need to do everything in our power to free Reverend Pinkney so he can continue to speak out against this draconian law.
