Occupy Detroit: Day 1 – Oct. 14th

In solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street protests that have been going on in the financial district of Manhattan since Sept. 17th and others that have sprung up around the world, Occupy Detroit supporters gathered at the Spirit of Detroit statue located at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center in downtown. Close to 2,000 protesters then marched up Woodward Avenue to a rally at Grand Circus Park, on their first day of occupation. Across the avenue, in the other section of the park, protesters set up tents, kitchen and medical areas for long-term occupation of the city.
