These photographs were taken at a demonstration in downtown Detroit on Sat. Feb. 8, 2020.
The protest was in opposition to the recent “Deal of the Century” where the United States regime of President Donald Trump has provided yet another approach to the continued settler-colonial project in Palestine.
The event was called by a number of organizations including the Palestine Community Network, Palestine Youth Movement, among others.
The manifestation consisted of two rallies and a march through the financial district in Detroit. Representatives of several groups in the Detroit area spoke at the rallies with the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice (MECAWI) delivering an unconditional statement of solidarity with the Palestinian struggle.
