Protest Against City of Detroit For Shutting Water Off

A caravan of water arrived in Detroit as a symbolic protest against the city shutting off water to residents who haven’t paid their bills.

Eleven vehicles filled with jugs of water passed through the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, Thursday afternoon.

The Canadians rallied outside city hall before heading for Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church to deliver the water.

The city has stepped up collection efforts for residential and business water service, and on Monday, the city suspended the shut-offs for 15 days.
