Global Justice Ecology Project is attending and presenting at the US Social Forum in Detroit, Michigan this week.
What follows is a photo essay by GJEP Co-Director/Strategist Orin Langelle documenting the opening march of the Social Forum which took to the streets of Detroit earlier today. The final photo in the series is of the USSF opening ceremony that took place at the Cobo Hall this evening.
All of the photos are by Orin Langelle unless otherwise noted.
Stay tuned to this blog for more updates, photos and reports daily from the US Social Forum throughout the week.
On Saturday, we will have another photo essay from the direct action at the Detroit incinerator, which is the largest in the United States.
