Demonstration Against EM Orr and the Banks
Greater Grace Temple
23500 West Seven Mile at Telegraph, Detroit map
It appears that cowed by the threat of demonstrations exposing Detroit Emergency Manager Orr as the agent of the banks, placed in office to gut city services and jobs and sell off city assets to insure the banksters’ debt service, Orr may have decided to call off the town hall meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 6, at Greater Grace Temple.
However, it should be noted that under the Emergency Act, Orr is required to conduct a public informational meeting on his financial plan within 30 days of submitting it. Since the plan was submitted on May 12, 2013, the public informational meeting must take place by Tuesday, June 11, 2013. In fact, Greater Grace Temple has stated that a meeting with EM Orr is slated for the church on June 10, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
As such, to stay mobilized and in gear, and to avoid being out-maneuvered by Orr’s gamesmanship, the Moratorium Now! Coalition plans on having a rally outside Greater Grace Church on Thursday, June 6, at 5:30 as previously announced. We urge the entire movement against the Emergency Manager to join us there on Thursday, and to stay on the alert for an announcement confirming the time and location of the Public Informational Meeting early next week. Visit our website at moratorium-mi.org for further information. We will have a hotline set up at 313-744-7912 to confirm the time and place of the demonstration to confront Orr at his public informational meeting.
