Protesters to disrupt Noel Night tonight in Detroit as anger increases

Update with photos and videos: Hundreds of protesters gathered during Noel Night and marched through the streets.

At least two protests are planned for the annual Noel Night tonight in Detroit as thousands of people descend on Midtown for the annual holiday celebration.

Another two protests are scheduled for today that aren’t connected with Noel Night.

The first Midtown rally begins at 6 p.m. in front of the Detroit Institute of Arts at 5200 Woodward. Participants are encouraged to bring signs. “No Justice, No Peace,” reads a flyer for the rally. “Shut it down.”

A second rally – a die-in – is scheduled for 8:03 p.m. on the steps of the DIA. Dozens – if not hundreds – of protesters plan to lie down, quietly uttering, “I can’t breathe,” the final words of Eric Garner before he was killed by a New York City cop using an illegal stranglehold. Then protesters will lie limp to symbolize Garner’s death.

Eric Garner protestProtests broke out nationwide last week when a grand jury declined to indict the officer.

About three dozens protesters gathered for a die-in at Campus Martius in downtown Detroit before marching on Woodward and blocking a lane of traffic. Check out our photo gallery.

“Whose streets?” protesters chanted. “Our streets!”

The local protests are known for evolving into civil disobedience as people express outrage over the disproportionate number of black and Latino people killed by police without much accountability.

Apart from the Noel Night protests, two other rallies are scheduled for today in Detroit.

A die-in is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Livernios and 7 Mile. Protesters will lie down for 15-and-a-half minutes – 11 minutes for each time Garner gasped, “I can’t breathe,” and 4-and-a-half minutes for the number of hours that Michael Brown was left dead in the streets of Ferguson. Protesters are asked to show up at 2:30 p.m.

Another protest is scheduled for 5 p.m. outside the Eastern Precinct of the Detroit Police Department at 11187 Gratiot. The rally is expected to include marching on the streets.

A little more than a week ago, protesters blocked three freeways in Detroit, resulting in a handful of arrests. Despite the disruptions, all of the protests have been peaceful.

The rallies, which started with Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, have been gaining momentum in Detroit since the grand jury failed to indict Eric Garner, who is seen dying on video.

    Noel Night in downtown Detroit? Good way to celebrate the Holidays by being harassed, disrupted or possibly mugged, raped, murdered. Merry Christmas!

    • Judi Blueye

      Noel Night is in Midtown. There are cameras in every nook and cranny in Downtown, or as it has come to be known, Gilbertville. They have been known to blast apart innocent bags of clothing with water cannons in Gilbertville, so the rapists and muggers give it a wide berth.

      Sir; you may want to check your keyboard; you may have spilled something on it, and now your “caps lock” button is stuck.

  • Paul

    I’m all for solidarity, but… wouldn’t it be better to do these protests in a place where police are frequently accused of being racist? I always hear that the Grosse Pointe police are racist, but all I hear about the Detroit police is “Don’t bother, if you’re in trouble, you’re better off calling Jimmy John’s and telling them to bring guns.”

    I feel like half the time I see Detroit cops outside of the nice downtown/midtown area they’re hiding, and I can’t even blame them. Maybe Detroit should have a protest like “please stop shooting at our police…”

  • ruffinoruffino

    If blacks put as much effort into improving themselves as they do protesting, rioting, looting, burning, they could make something positive out of their lives.

  • Anna

    People need to grow up. Face the facts if these people weren’t comitting crimes in the first place they’d still be alive. People really need to stop blowing this up into something it’s not even about.

  • bebow

    The great equalizer is education. It holds the keys to the kingdom, and that’s why four decades of educational genocide is a morally depraved offense. There will be no justice without equality, and there will be no equality without education.

  • John Dewey

    Why are Detroiters complaining about and blocking Detroit streets and venues, for goodness sake! And having a “die-in” for Garner and Brown? WTF?

    Detroit is black-owned and black-run. Detroit citizens are offing Detroit hoodlums at huge rates, and Detroit black juries and Detroit black prosecutors and Detroit black grand juries are calling these killings “justifiable” homicides and “self defense”. But Garner and Brown are the big problem? Huh?

    Hell, if “Black Lives Matter” in Detroit, why don’t you go after your home grown black killer cops, black civilian killers (“self defense!”), black prosecutors, black police chiefs, black mayors, and black grand juries?

  • TooPhatForDat

    Idiots. Brown was left for 4.5 hours as it was CRIME SCENE and needed to be investigated. And then they had to process it – which the morons who cry for facts wanted afterward anyways. “No Justice No Peace” is pathetic, sad, and ignorant.

    Pass out job applications and watch this crowd of crap scatter tonight.

    ‪#‎Detroit‬ ‪#‎EricGarner‬ ‪#‎MikeBrown‬ ‪#‎Solidarity‬
    At 12:03pm est, activists of all backgrounds along with passers-by in dress suits, united during their work day in solidarity with a die-in demonstration on the freezing cold pavement at Campus Martius Park, followed by a subsequent long march down Woodward to WSU in the brisk Detroit December air.

    This direct action was in response to the grand jury decision not to indict the cop, 29 year old Daniel Pantaleo, who placed #EricGarner in a murderous choke hold. The medical examiner confirmed this was what lead the 43 year old father to his heart attack and death. Garner’s last words after being tackled and choked, “I can’t breathe” were repeated over and over, precluding the limp silence that followed and was caught from beginning to end on cell phone video.

    A few indy papers including the liberal Metro Times and leftist Motor City Muckraker published the planned demo, prompting heavy police and local MSM presence including: CBS, ABC, FOX News, as well as local right wing radio WWJ, and moderate WDET. Indy media came just as strong, including Critical Moment, and The People’s Tribune .

    Tired and not taking it anymore.
    In lieu of the continuous onslaught of police brutality, police militarization, and the system of the industrial prison complex, brothers and sisters bantered rounds of, “I CAN’T BREATHE!” “DON’T SHOOT!” followed by, “BLACK LIVES MATTER!” as the media tip-toed between the bodies on the pavement, taking photos, videos, and interviewing. A Fox reporter hovered over one woman holding a sign, ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬, and the two began engaging in an interview, when one protester sat up and changed the chorus to, “Fuck Fox News! Fuck Fox News! ::shrug:: Fuck Fox News? ::affirmative headshake:: Fuck Fox News.” The befuddled reporter naively attempted to bring the interview to this individual, who only continued, “Fuck Fox News” into the mic. The demo carried on.

    After about 30 minutes, a BAMN activist rallied the group with, “March down Woodward” the oldest vein and first paved road of the country, today heavily populated with corporations and businesses. As I spoke earlier with another BAMN activist, there was a concern that a mere die-in would only victimize and not empower; therefore, the march decidedly would take place afterwards.
    A woman with a deep, strong and powerful countenance belted into the bullhorn, “Ferguson has shown the way! The killer cops have got to pay!” setting off the call and response as folks assisted one another off the ground, and carried on down the busy street, followed by a string of police cars, MSM vans, a helicopter overhead, and encircled by a swarm of cameras.

    1:12 into the march, the chorus demanded, “Police brutality must be stopped!” “Fire and jail these racist cops!” The pace was too brisk for some as the crowd walked in the street, slowing local traffic, but excellerating on foot. Some fell behind.

    3 minutes in, “Killer cops must go to JAIL!” “We will bring this nation HELL!” Signs made of cardboard and torn brown paper bags were hoisted in the air towards the police surveillance. A long, blue repurposed schoolbus that now read “DETROIT POLICE DEPARTMENT” was soon escorted alongside the march, but intimidated they weren’t.

    4m12s, The People continued onward.
    “They say Jim Crow!” “We say HELL NO!” and in the colloquial pitch of, “Deeeeeeetroit….Bas-ket-baaaalll….” the protesters reeled, “Jiiiiiiiim Crooow…..Helllll nooo…” as the construction crews paused and watched the parade of activists, cop cars, media vans, and civilian traffic do a slowed roll by. A couple of men in safety vests chuckled among themselves, “Let’s see those people take a trip through Howell.” a known KKK hotspot.

    5m45s We will not be moved.
    In spite of the heavy police presence, slowing and at times stopping traffic, the People held strong, at least those that could endure the miles on foot in the cold, “A badge is not a licence to kill.” “March to make Dr. King’s dream real.”

    In order to realize a dream, one must wake up. The People, indeed, are rising, and shining.

        Thanks. I appreciate you!

    • maggiemay

      Yes, one must wake up. Stop killing each other. Clean up your neighborhoods and take the time to raise your children to be good people. You’re failing miserably as it is.

      • Jarah Lo

        Who are you referring to when you say “you”, “your”, and “You’re”, because if it’s directed towards me, I’d like to hear where you believe I live and who my children are. If you are generalizing, well, even less reason to mind what you are saying.

        • maggiemay

          Who do you think I’m referring to? Black people. It’s been 151 yrs. since the emancipation proclamation and blacks are still standing around with their hands out. Other ethnic groups overcame much greater odds and more prejudice. When is the black race going to stand up and take responsibility for themselves? I’m thinking Earl Butz was right.

    • JC

      I wouldn’t go so far as to describe Steve or his blog as “leftist.” He hasn’t earned that distinction.

      • Jarah Lo

        I don’t know Steve. I understand what I’ve read from MCM appears to support the left. Perhaps you have a different understanding.

            Well it IS true that about 40% are Conservative compared to 20% Liberal wouldn’t know that from the media they insist on calling the largest political group in the US fringe

    • Ballsy Terri

      Dude; way too much drama.

  • todd

    What I want to know… Is why there hasn’t been a proposed solution. Just a bunch of stupid protests. Honestly why can’t people understand that there’s no league of white police officera that’s out to kill black people. Officers asses the situation based on what’s happening in the moment and their prior experience. I’d rather see blacks and whites getting together over unjust laws and major corporations that are usually the causes of these problems rather than the superficial division that’s been created by the media in this country. I mean making the lower, and middle class right to the death doesn’t sound like a bad way to make sure real issues are ignored does it?

    • Judi Blueye

      There were proposed solutions given including requiring Detroit police to live in the city. Real public education instead of privitized EAA fake school to prison pipeline crap and community policing efforts. Just because youre getting headline blurbs instead of actual treporting of the events does not mean nithing is offered.

      • todd

        I’d like to see the articles if you have the links on hand. I’m not trying to start a debate I’m definitely interested to see what’s been proposed

  • maggiemay

    If Eric Garner could talk, he could breathe. Maybe if he wasn’t 100lbs. overweight, didn’t have asthma or heart disease, or most importantly if he would have done as the cops asked, he’d still be alive. Actions have consequences.

    • Jack Ramsey

      What an obedient boot licker you must be.

      • maggiemay

        I was just raised to respect the people who put their lives on the line for me everyday and to respect the rights of others. Something sorely lacking in the black community.

    • Amber

      Or, if the NY cops had followed orders and didn’t choke hold Eric Garner then maybe he could have lived to lose the weight and help prevent those ailments. Why put blame on something that he could do nothing about at the time of his death?

      • maggiemay

        Maybe if he would have obeyed the law in the first place, and then when he was caught done as the cop asked he would still be alive. He had 31 prior misdemeanors, he wasn’t some innocent citizen. Just a slow learner.

    • Judi Blueye

      Blame the victim. I guess fat people arent real citizens.

      • maggiemay

        Not fat people that don’t obey the law.

        • Ballsy Terri

          They should have let up.
          He was selling single cigarettes! His neighbors loved him for it because the Liberal nanny state charges over $15 a pack in NY.
          That man should be alive today, and that cop should at least be facing involuntary manslaughter.

          • maggiemay

            If he was so loved, why were the shop owners constantly calling the police to complain about him? The fact is, if he wasn’t resisting and did as he was asked he’d be alive today. The cop did not apply the choke hold until he was trapped between Garner and the plate glass window that he felt buckling. The cop became afraid he would go through the window. Watch the video. This was not a racial crime, there were black cops there, including a black supervisor. None of them tried to stop it and they even helped to take Garner down. Just get the facts straight.

          • Ballsy Terri

            His race wasn’t mentioned by me; you may be thinking of someone else.
            I’m saying the man should be alive. By arguing with me, you are saying his death was justified.
            Obviously all that rancid pus inside you is causing your normal conversation filters to fail. Now we get to see what an evil racist pseudo human you truly are. I pray that your vagina is barren so that we don’t have to deal with your spawn in the future.

          • maggiemay

  • DownriverMichiganExposed

    All I can say is “HYPOCRITE” Protest for a killings in MO and NY. When I haven’t heard a word of outrage from the community leaders about the murders that are happening in their own backyard. Where is the outrage over the killing of Terrance Hill Jr, Tiane Brown, James Blade, Mark Warren, Delvon Jones, Edward Shaw. or Jeremy Thompson? Why are the community leaders and protestors not doing something about stopping the black on black murders which represent a much higher percentage. Why?!? because it doesn’t promote the “hate” agenda that simmering. If you choose to burn your cities down, do it! If you choose to divert dollars away from the city, do it! But. stop being HYPOCRITES .. .in the name of Justice because we all know it is anything but JUSTICE..

    • When will downriverexposed say something about the white on white murders that are tearing apart his community? HYPOCRITE

      • DownriverMichiganExposed

        John, I will say something once they take to the streets protesting and burning down their cities. In the name of fake “Justice” because a black man killed a white guy. I have an idea.. .why don’t people stop killing one another.. I know crazy idea..

      • Ken Settle Photos

        Because the white on white murders are not tearing apart the white community with the same vim and vigor and sheer astounding numbers as those in the black community. Detroit sits at over a murder a day, and almost all of those 360 to 411 people killed every year in Detroit are black people murdered by other black people, more specifically, most often by a young black male.

    • Jeph

      This isn’t necessarily about race – although it is – this is more an issue of the cops beginning to be militarized against the people they are supposed to protect. Talk to an old cop who was trained to talk a gunman out of a situation, and talk to a young cop – he has been instructed to shoot first (often because of the lack of ability – they want dumb people who easily follow orders)

      • DownriverMichiganExposed

        With the acceptance of Homeland Security Grants all departments are accepting to keep the day to day running of departments. You will see more and more of this…

      • Ken Settle Photos

        And what is the cause and effect that created this change? The militarization of a a society that holds less and less value for human life, law and order and respect of others. When you have assault weapons in the hands of 16 year olds and metal detectors, armed guards and uniformed police in the halls of middle schools and high schools, not only in Detroit, but every urban area, do you really think that it is reasonable that those that are sworn to “serve and protect,” are gonna try and “Serve and protect” the law abiding citizenry, from an armed to the gills thug citizenry, by carrying a billy club, a bible and a sack of candy? The criminal underbelly of society in every urban area, has defined and dictated the level of militarization that we see in the police today.

  • James

    This is misleading. I don’t really think protests are “disruptive”. AND, this article should also make the distinction clear from the headline that Noel Night is NOT what is being protested or making people angry. Noel night has been a community event for 42 years and has always celebrated the diversity and inclusion of Detroiters.

    • muckraker_steve

      James, thanks for the response. I chose “disruptive” after talking to some of the organizers. The idea is to disrupt normal life to force people to confront racism. That’s why Noel Night was chosen. I meant no disrespect to any protesters or their intentions. This is more of a direction action.

      • Ballsy Terri

        Sorry Steve. The “idea” is to get their picture on the news, catch a buzz with a lot of like-minded people, and hopefully get laid.
        This is just a chance to be obnoxious and ruin good honest folk’s holiday event;
        “by any means necessary”.
        They’re turning people against them with this crap.

        • Judi Blueye

          Wow i must be doing it wrong. I didnt catch a buzz or get laid. I did get laid out on the pavement for saying to a police officer that he didnt need his baton or to shove people at a peaceful protest. But, with my white privilege intact, i wasnt choked, beaten or shot. Imahine for a moment if one of your children had been killed for a minor violation like shoplifting or mouthing off? That is what these protests are about.

          • maggiemay

            Get over yourself.

          • Judi Blueye

            Ok, done. Now what?

          • Ken Settle Photos

            Yeah and…ummm….assaulting a cop, trying to gain control of his gun and then charging at the officer had NOTHING to do with why that infamous shoplifter (Brown) was shot? Only fools believe that worn out nonsense and only fools refuse to acknowledge the overwhelming testimony ( by mostly black eyewitnesses) as well as forensic, autopsy, and ballistic evidence that supports Officer Wilson’s testimony. Here are some FACTS for you:

            Germany–662 homicides a year
            The UK–653 homicides a year
            Japan–442 homicides a year
            USA–14,827 homicides a year.

            The UK could kill each other for nearly TWENTY THREE YEARS before they reached the good ol’ USA’s numbers. Of the USA’s 14,827 homicides a year, fully 52% of those are committed by blacks, which only represent 12% of the population. More specifically, a small minority of the 12% black population is responsible for 52% of the homicides in the USA, and that demographic is the young black male.

            These are facts, not emotions. These facts go a long way to explain why it is that young black males “Interact” more often with the police than any other demographic, and the fact that they are significantly more prone to be armed during these “interactions” makes the “interactions” more volatile, dangerous and potentially lethal than “interactions” with any other demographic.

            Even if he got control of the officer’s gun and killed him, in this country every person is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Everyone seems to forget that point. The same goes for Wilson, but he will never see the inside of a court room because the “prosecutor” derailed that process by failing to do his job.

          • dirtydog1776

            European nations engage on a regular basis, in world wars, ethnic cleanings, violent revolutions to set up dictators or governments that depend on America to clean up their messes. They kill millions…..certainly not the liberal paradise such statistics would lead us to believe. The rate of sexual assault, violent crimes and murders are increasing as they embrace the “joys of diversity and multiculturalism” embraced by politicians who pander to minorities for their votes.

            Exactly. You prove the point. Black people should not get special treatment. But they are. A black man is 21x more likely to be killed by police than a white man. THAT is a modern day reemergence of Jim Crow. Treating black lives as disposable is what is bringing this outrage to the surface.

            Thank you blue eyes. This reminds me of the marchers in the 60s i often remind my people about how many white people that risked themselves to march with and for us as people.

    • Thee1tooth

      Actually it was pretty damn disruptive as it caused me to be effing late to pick up my dogs from daycare after I worked a craply 12 hour shift and it cost me $20 extra bucks so yeah it was pretty fucking disruptive. Thank you protestors for doing nothing meaningful and joining the bandwagon of edgy hippies who think doing stupid crap like this actually makes a difference!

      • Judi Blueye

        It got your attention.

        • Thee1tooth

          Most certainly not in a positive productive way. I was at a point of understanding the anger and frustration of the protestors but after wasting my time and money and after seeing my coworker, who is African American and also on the protestors side, almost get fired because she was late getting to work and was on a final warning AND she’s a fucking single mother; after that I believe the protestors are immature, infantile, and think that shouting and don’t care about anything but their own agenda.

          • Judi Blueye

            People are dying and you’re out 20$. Life is tough isn’t it. Our own agenda is pretty big when weighted against what you are bringing to the table. How many hours late will your coworker be if one of her children are gunned down for not responding fast enough to a police officer?

          • Thee1tooth

            Yeah idiot, I’m out $20 and I’m a college student working min wage. Oops, guess I’m not eating for a few days. Tell my coworker that her getting fired was worth it for you selfish morons and that her kids will just have to understand that a bunch of assholes blocking traffic is more important than eating. There are more productive ways of getting change accomplished. Instead of blocking average people who already know what the fuck is going on and probably already agree with you go block some cops or politicians. Unfortunately most of us have to wrk hard long hours so we can feed our families and make sure OUR kids have the luxury of going to school and becoming productive and not have to resort to crime.

          • Judi Blueye

            I’m not buying it. My minimum wage earning student could not afford one doggie at daycare, let alone plural dogs. Your coworker has a much better grasp on what is at stake, especially if one of her kids is male.

  • sisuenterprises

        A disproportionate number of black people are committing the crimes. Also, the vast majority of black people are killed by other black people. Tell the whole story.

        You do realize, of course, that you had to venture back 33 years to find a factoid that fit your narrative?
        Let me guess; Wayne State?

          You guessed wrong, Creighton University. There’s a big world beyond your nose, Ballsy T. You didn’t get my point, which was SIMPLY the shooter of the president was not killed in apprehension. Perhaps that speaks to the level training and degree of psych testing one endures as Secret Service versus a township cop. My neighbor called the police on the mentally ill woman who sliced the Detroit cop on Saturday. This woman was cuffed and taken away. There were 8-10 cars there within 5 mins! Now she should have been met with deadly force, but it was a lucky day for her. Your obvious slam on Wayne State leads me to believe that you think you’re better educated. Being educated is one thing but being intelligent is another. Again please explore the world beyond your nose.

      No. Obey the cops and live in a state of martial law. It’s only a matter of time before they come for all of our freedoms, as they will say that giving them up would be in our best interest…

      Perhaps with simplistic thoughts like those you feel free, but the prison of your medieval mentality is a terrible thing to contemplate.
