Hamtramck, MI 48212
Free Admission,

"Capitalism: A Love Story examines the impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). The film moves from Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan. With both humor and outrage, the film explores the question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Families pay the price with their jobs, their homes and their savings. Moore goes into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington, DC and elsewhere. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies, abuse, betrayal...and 14,000 jobs being lost every day. Capitalism: A Love Story also presents what a more hopeful future could look like." -IMDB.

May Day Report



May Day 2010 Detroit was successful in many regards. First, the DSP joined other protesters for the 5th Annual Immigrant Rights March for a 3 mile march through Southwest Detroit’s largely Latino community. It was estimated that 250-300 people marched, which although lower than previous years still made its presence known and was emblematic of the unity that can occur between different groups within the community. It culminated with a rally and later a musical fundraiser for the DSP. The fundraiser, held in a Hamtramck bar, raised substantial funds with more than 50 persons donating at the entrance.

The DSP would like to thank all of those that made both event possible.
