Excerpts highlighting Larry Pinkney:

“On Questioning War- Organizing Resistance Monday, June 30th, Movement Building is the theme and goal of the show with film makers William Lewis and John Ennis, whose films are damning looks at the Congressional collusion with the attacks on our Constitution and civil liberties, as well as the stealing of our elections. Larry Pinkney, ex-political prisoner, articulate writer and coalition builder and Marnie Glickman, Executive Director of GreenChange.org round out the wide spectrum of opposition to the war makers and offer vision, and practical things people can do to organize discontent into a real, powerful, positive political force for real change”

Larry Pinkney is a veteran of the Black Panther Party, a former political prisoner and the only American to have successfully self-authored his civil/political rights case to the United Nations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. For more about Larry Pinkney see the book, Saying No to Power: Autobiography of a 20th Century Activist and Thinker by William Mandel [Introduction by Howard Zinn]. Larry wrote an excellent article entitled- Barack Obama and the Euphoria of Madness recently on the Black Commentator website, he is on its editorial board.

Larry has compared Obama with the candidate skewered by the Democratic Party and the Media who has consistently spoken up on behalf of truth and people- Cynthia McKinney. Why was he a political prisoner? The following excerpt from his FBI file, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, speaks for itself:

“Pinkney is potentially dangerous due to his demonstrated ability to unify black and white. His associates are Negro, White, and Chinese. Special attention is being given to neutralizing him. The areas of sex and drugs appear to be the most effective ones to utilize. His habits in these areas are unknown, but are being monitored with this objective. The FBI is working in conjunction with [blacked out, but a covering note to the U.S. Secret Service, San Francisco, accompanies this].”

Effective organizers, coalitions that cross traditional boundaries are what is needed in these times.
