The Occupy Detroit group has potentially set a precedent for groups aligned with the flagship in New York City.

After their first weekend in Grand Circus Park, the group organized a demonstration with Moratorium NOW!, a pre-existing coalition that seeks to to stop foreclosures, evictions and utility shutoffs. (See “Up Against the banks,” MT News Editor Curt Guyette’s cover story about the group.) Occupy Detroit adopted the end of foreclosures in Detroit and throughout Michigan as a demand, and took that demand on Tuesday to Bank of America’s downtown offices on Griswold.
