Occupy Detroit

The more I visit Detroit, now that I’m living in northwest Ohio, the more I fall in love with it. It would take pages for me to explain the details of what I see when I visit, but in a nutshell Detroit tells me the story of humanity born and gone and trying to be born again.

One of the highlights of present-day Detroit is the Occupy Detroit encampment at Grand Circus Park at the gateway to downtown. Yesterday, I dragged my twins and my mother-in-law from California to visit the encampment and join in on a march. We were, of course, late to the march, but we caught up with the occupiers at the Park and met some neat folks.

Here are some of my favorite photos from our brief visit:

One of the many signs posted on the outside barrier of the encampment at Occupy Detroit.

On a wall just outside the encampment...something I strive for every day.

In the encampment, one of the many things the 99 percent are protesting.

This wall is across the street from the encampment.

  2. Thanks Shoshana. I love to see/hear about the various Occupy Wall Street encampments; I visited the one here in Tucson yesterday and will check out the big mama in NYC when I go east for Thanksgiving.

    • My sister used to live in Tucson. Nice community there. How is the occupy going there? It seems with winter coming, the western encampments will have an easier time of it.
