Dr. King's Legacy

On this, the 43rd anniversary of Dr. Kings assassination, thousands of union workers, including teachers, will be marching around the country remembering that King died fighting for the rights of city workers to unionize. In Detroit and march and rally is being organized to protest the legislature's recent passage of union busting legislation.

"...this dark cloud makes our pension susceptible to takeover! Everybody who believes in civil rights should be alarmed about what is taking place. If they can do this in Detroit, they can and will do it in any city that has fallen on hard times." -- Detroit 5000
