Protesters blast emergency manager for Detroit

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, MI (AP) -

A few dozen people protested the possible appointment of an emergency manager for Detroit outside an event where Governor Rick Snyder had a Friday speaking engagement.

The demonstration outside the Detroit Athletic Club was the second in two days.

The Detroit Free Press reports that about 75 people took part in a vehicle caravan that disrupted traffic Thursday on Interstate 75 and ended with a rally downtown.

Detroit's city councilmembers said they will appeal a review team's decision and Snyder's assertion that there is a financial emergency and the city has no good plan to fix it.

A hearing is scheduled Tuesday in Lansing.

The Detroit News reports that Snyder likely will review the appeal Tuesday before deciding to reverse or reaffirm his financial emergency declaration.
