Friends of VOD, please click on http://VoiceofDetroit.net or posts below to read the latest people's news with a focus on Detroit. Note Angela Davis will be in Detroit tomorrow, Oct. 25. Other important articles: Dillon-Bing Cabal demands drastic cutbanks, Vote NO on 1, the Emergency Manager Law, extensive coverage on disastrous EMA contract which would cut 81 percent of Detroit Water and Sewerage Department workforce and on proposal for Belle Isle no-cost "lease" to the state. Also note police brutality coverage which gives a new slant to Detroit police chief Ralph Godbee's resignation.
Stories are still coming on the rally against immigration raids in Southwest Detroit held Oct. 21, bus riders' confrontation at Council regarding "intolerable" service, Marathon Oil's war on the community, and news on Michigan juvenile life without parole cases.
