Local Detroit and national antiwar groups are planning a feeder march
and actions that will begin at the DTE Energy Plaza, move to the Federal
Building (where the office of Sen. Carl Levin, head of the Senate Armed
Services Committee, is stationed), and then join the main USSF marchers
prior to assembling at Cobo Hall for the opening ceremonies. Length of
march is not long and proximity to main march is nearby.
The tentative schedule for this march is: 3 pm. – Campaign against utility
shutoffs assembly at DTE Energy Plaza – One Energy Plaza, between Bagley and
Third Avenue in downtown Detroit – circling building – theme being “Shut Off
the Pentagon, Not People!” – “Power to the People!”
After fifteen minute DTE demonstration, folks march 1/4 mile south and to
the east along Michigan Avenue to demonstrate in front of the Federal
Building – 477 Michigan Avenue (corner of Michigan and Cass).
At 3:30, those who have already assembled at the Federal Building with
picketing will be joined by larger feeder march from DTE Energy Plaza:
Theme: “Money for Jobs, Not for War!” “Stop the Trillion Dollar Wars!”
“Redirect Funding to Human Needs!”
