Michigan:
Protest at Snyder’s House

Jan 23, 2012

More than a thousand people demonstrated near Governor Snyder’s Ann Arbor house on Martin Luther King Day. The protest was mainly against the Emergency Financial Manager law, which allows the governor to appoint a dictator who can tear up union contracts, cut wages, eliminate benefits, close public schools, hand them over to private for-profit companies, etc., etc., etc.

Unfortunately, people couldn’t get close to his house – he lives in a private, gated community. Fortunately, the crowd was loud enough to be heard well beyond those locked gates.
