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!

President/NAACP/BANCO & Stop The Take Over Benton Harbor
Rev. Edward Pinkney
1940 Union St.
Benton Harbor, Michigan 49022

    I will definately be there!!! We MUST show these corporate elitest of the 1% they can’t silence us!! For too long they have come in, told some empty promises, tossed some cheap junk around, and the people “fell in line”, I believe those days are fading FAST. We have a voice, and it WILL be heard. We are a beautiful people, and we WILL be counted!!

    We’ll be bringing this action up at the Occupy Detroit general assembly. I’ll be working to organize a caravan. Thanks for everything you do Rev. Pinkney!

      It is so great to see so many people come together the way they have for the Occupy Movement! The responce of people like you, Sarah is SO appreciated. Every time I hear someone else is coming to join us, it’s like welcoming a new friend or family member. The Rev. is really awesome and has worked so hard at this. All who desire to be free and retain our rights are welcome to join us. Thanks Sarah.

    Dictator Harris needs to find out how tar and feathers work.

    A great event and positive national attention comes to our shores and you want to disrupt it. The blind leading the blind on this one. Occupy, you’ve got nothing to complain about in little old BH.

    • Jessica Heinz says:

      Ms. Williams, It is NOT our desire to “disrupt” anything, as you can see, we haven’t interacted with anyone inside the PGA. On speaking of the blind, you should never be so blinded by patriotism (or anything else) that you lose sight of right and wrong. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it or does it. Gentrification of a city of HUMAN BEINGS IS WRONG. Wealth doesn’t make it right.
