Supporters of Michigan political prisoner the Rev. Edward Pinkney rallied outside the Michigan Department of Corrections in Lansing, Mich., on March 4. Protesters demanded an end to the mistreatment of Rev. Pinkney at the hands of the guards and administration of the Marquette Branch Prison, where he has been imprisoned since October. The action also demanded freedom for Rev. Pinkney, whose case is now before the Michigan Court of Appeals. Pinkney’s spouse, Dorothy Pinkney, read a statement to the crowd.
