WE WILL NOT BE SILENT | 20 Images

“ Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.“

The more injustice, lies and oppression in a society, the more important are these words of Martin Luther King, Jr. In recent years we are seeing on-the-streets activism becoming the norm rather than the exception.

 I call this portfolio  “We Will Not Be Silent” and dedicate it to the youth who are courageously standing up and speaking out for change in today’s world. Included are photos from 1) a 2014 protest against the Detroit Water & Sewage Department’s dangerous policy of shutting off water to tens of thousands of homes in the city for non-payment of bills; 2) a high school-organized Black Lives Matter rally and march in Southfield, MI in July 2016, 3) the Detroit Women’s March protesting Trump’s inauguration in January 2017; 4) one week later a rally and march in solidarity with Muslim immigrants whom Trump had banned from entering the US;  5) in April 2017 a rally and march supporting Science & Climate Control that Trump was denying; 6) in March 2018 a Detroit area middle school-organized March For Life on the nationwide day of protest to insist on sensible gun control to protect our schools from more massacres by individuals using easy-to-buy assault rifles;  and 7) in June 2018 a downtown Detroit rally and march protesting the Trump-ordered separation of immigrant and asylum-seeking parents from their children at the US border with Mexico.
