Happy birthday, Rev. Pinkney!
Support continues to build for Michigan political prisoner the Rev. Edward Pinkney. The Detroit Light Brigade lit up the night over Interstate 75 in mid-October with a message to motorists about him.
On Oct. 27 Rev. Pinkney will turn 67 while in Marquette Prison, just 10 months into his 2.5-to-10-year sentence on frame-up charges. Supporters are urged to mail a birthday card or greeting letter to Rev. Edward Pinkney, N-E-93 #294671, Marquette Branch Prison, 1960 U.S. Hwy 41 South, Marquette, MI 49855. Phone calls protesting Pinkney’s punitive transfer 500 miles from his family and attorney should be made to Michigan Department of Corrections Director Heidi Washington at 517-241-7238. Urge them to send Rev. Pinkney back downstate.
