Breaking News

Last night the BH city commission, 4 to 2, carried out a Vote of No Confidence regarding the PGA tournament to be held in Benton Harbor, May 23-27.

City commissioner Dennis Knowles was quoted by WNDU as saying: “The reason I voted against the PGA is because of the non-inclusiveness of the residents that live in the city, the inner city….I’m saying that these people need a chance, in my neighborhood…they need a chance.”

Occupy the PGA!

It is our distinct honor to invite you on behalf of the NAACP-BH, the Black Autonomy Network Community Organization (BANCO), and Stop The Take Over in Benton Harbor, Michigan to an event scheduled for May 23-27, 2012.

Occupy the PGA!

Benton Harbor, Michigan

Senior PGA Golf Tournament

May 23-May 27

March on May 26, 10am, from City Hall (200 Wall St.) to Jean Klock Park Beach

We are committed to escalating the Occupy Movement to support human rights in housing in addition to the push back against bailouts for fraudulent banks. They are stealing our homes and lives. Democracy is non-existent here in Benton Harbor. Joseph Harris, the Emergency Manager imposed by the Governor, must go!  With pride, he called himself a “dictator.” 

The PGA will be played on a $750 million dollar, 530-acre resort near the lakeshore with $500,000 condominiums. We cannot forget the three golf holes inside Jean Klock Park that were taken from the residents of Benton Harbor.

Allow me to thank you in advance. We the residents of Benton Harbor love you!
