PROTEST THE AUTO SHOW PROM! RALLY JAN 18th: Seize The Plant, Save the Planet: Make Detroit the engine for a Green New Deal!

NOTE: we will be OUTSIDE Cobo, dress warm!

37 years ago, the City of Detroit invoked eminent domain to gift the entire historic Poletown neighborhood in Hamtramck to GM, wiping out an entire community so the company could build the factory it intends to shutter.

Just 10 years ago, the people rescued GM from the brink of collapse with a $51 billion bailout.

Protest GOP "Lame Duck" session!

Date: 
Tue, Dec 4, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

City:

ALL OUT for a protest at the State Capitol! We will be gathering at the steps of the Capitol Tuesday to raise our voices in anger against the GOP for their anti-democratic takeover of our government.

The lame duck session has taken over Earned Paid Sick Leave and the Minimum Wage ballot initiatives and gutted them. Hundreds of thousands of voters signed a petition to put these to a state wide vote; Republicans have taken this voice away from voters and gutted the legislation themselves, "in the dead of night". This is no less than a coup.
