No New Wayne County Jail Meeting/Speakout

Date: 
Tue, Feb 21, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

On the morning of February 16, organizers with Michigan Abolition Alliance shut down the Wayne County Commissioners’ meeting, demanding that neither the city nor Dan Gilbert build a new jail complex in Wayne County, and more broadly, calling for the abolition of the prison-industrial complex as a whole. Gilbert’s company, Rock Ventures LLC, is trying to make a deal with the county to take over the unfinished jail site downtown in order to build a soccer stadium in its place, and build a separate jail facility elsewhere.

Immigrant Solidarity Protest against ICE Detention Center

Date: 
Fri, Feb 17, 2017 - 3:00pm to 6:00pm

City:

Workers, documented and undocumented, unite! A general strike has been called for on February 17th 2017. Racist mass deportations have already begun in Detroit and throughout the country. Immigrants are being scapegoated and targeted by the Trump Administration and their reactionary supporters in order to divide the working class and distract us from identifying the real threat and our common enemy: Hate groups, U.S. imperialism, and the bosses. We will start by demonstrating at the main entrance of the ICE Detention & Deportation Center.
