Occupy the PGA
Benton Harbor, Michigan
Senior PGA Golf Tournament
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 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 can not forget the three golf holes inside Jean Klock Park that were taken from the Benton Harbor residents.
If your schedule does not permit your attendance on May 26, 2012, alternative action dates are May 23-25, 2012. Please let me know if you can accept the invitation to participate in Occupy the PGA. We eagerly await your response. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me directly at (269-925-0001). Allow me to thank you in advance.We the residents of Benton Harbor love you!
