Today, I made the drive up I-75 from Cincinnati to the Motor City to attend the March & Rally to Turn the Water On in Detroit, which was put on by National Nurses United, Robin Hood Tax USA, Moratorium-MI.Org and a host of other great progressive organizations. I will have an article up that touches on the rally and Detroit’s Water Crisis in greater detail in the next couple of days, but I just wanted to post some of the photos that I took during the march as an appetizer and briefly say how thoroughly impressed and emboldened I was by the people of Detroit and the people of Michigan who I saw out in huge numbers today. While some of the crowd could be attributed to folks taking a break from the Netroots Nation convention going on right now at the Cobo Center, I would say that probably 3 out of every 4 people I talked to at the march was from Detroit or Ann Arbor or Flint or anywhere in the great state of Michigan, which is a testament to how passionate and broad the grassroots movement for social change is there. I hope you enjoy the photos.
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
