In 2014, Reverend Edward Pinkney, grassroots leader of the Black Autonomy Network Community Organization (BANCO) was jailed ‘without evidence’, accused of altering a recall petition against the then Benton Harbor Mayor who was supporting local Whirlpool Corporation’s tax evasion. Rev, Pinkney spent 30 months in jail. In 2015, we supported his fight by circulating a call for support jointly with the GWS.
