Sometimes we focus on physical poverty. There’s also a poverty of hope and of dreams. That’s what musical involvement gives low-income children.

Contents of a Rape-Kit - “Being Raped in a Bankrupt City” 

“They were not in order, they were not packaged the same, they were just all over,” Worthy said, describing the condition of the neglected evidence. “One of the first things we had to do was build a database and figure out what we had.” Since nothing in the rape kits indicated they were attached to a police report and nothing in police reports indicated they were attached to a rape kit number, this was a significant undertaking.

With a grant from the National Institute of Justice, Worthy and her team, along with volunteers, took all the information they could off each kit: victim’s name, address, where the rape occurred, the date of the attack, etc., and created a database. Then they hunted for any police report that would match the data.

As she and her team dug through police reports, Worthy said she also noticed a pattern of how police officers treated victims. They found testimonies, she said, stating that officers had made comments like, “This victim is a ho. I don’t believe anything she says.” The DPD said it had no comment about victim treatment.

A system that perpetrates crime prevails in Michigan and commonly occurs throughout our consumer-oriented society. We have become more obsessed with what people have and their status than their humanity. Rape is a human rights violation.

That generations will continue to pass without understanding they have the ability to change the caustic system of consumerism around them.

Challenge society to become inclusive and worthwhile. Put a halt to self hatred and loathing.

The city can’t even put together a proper witness list. Its full of corporate interests and lacks public acknowledgment. The people must demand representation for a full understanding of the impacts being felt by Detroit citizens.

Detroit is not a loan.
Detroit is not alone.
Detroit is not for taking.
Detroit is not forsaken.

File objections to the plan of adjustment which sacrifices people over profit by banks and creditors too big to fail. The people shall suffer no injustice for the failings of the corporation of the city. The bankruptcy code is the law and it shall not be bent for ill-will by corporate and fascist interests.

Stand up Detroit.
Shutdown Detroit on May Day.

Detroit is under siege. Governor Snyder and the right wing legislature have joined Wall Street Bankers to strip us of our homes, our pensions and benefits, and our democratic rights. They have used an Unconstitutional Emergency Manager in a number of cities, where people of color are the majority, to remove elected leadership so they could steal city assets and privatize basic services. The unemployment rate in Detroit is already 49% and for those under 30, 59%. Now Snyder is working to hand cities over to the same banks that foreclosed on thousands of families across Michigan and corporations. Snyder ignores the social cost of his plan, which is morally bankrupt.

Today, 55% of all African Americans in Michigan can no longer vote for effective local government and 75% of all African American elected officials have been removed from power. We will stand on May 1, 2014 and after with the people in cities across Michigan who are being denied basic human rights and stripped of their common wealth.

• We demand that Governor Snyder, the Michigan legislature and, Kevyn Orr stop stripping Michigan cities’ money and resources
• We demand our democracy taken by Snyder be restored immediately
• We demand that Wall Street pay for the crisis; not one dime from our pensions and working government employees
• We demand the State restore full revenue sharing to all cities in Michigan
• We demand Community Benefit Agreements for all development • Support the People’s Plan for a Sustainable Detroit -http://www.d-rem.org/peoplesplan/
• We join with people around the world on International Workers Day, commemorating the Haymarket Square Protest in 1886 in Chicago for the eight hour day.
• We celebrate with undocumented workers and immigrants, our heroic sisters and brothers who revived May Day in this country.

Do you think we are getting this Michigan?
Do you think there are far too many closed door, negotiated deals bordering on or fully corrupt happening in Michigan? Perhaps someone isn’t doing his/her job to ensure public officials are working in our best interests?
