Protestors at Detroit City Hall

(WXYZ) - It has been a busy week at Detroit's City Hall and the week is capped off with hundreds of protestors.

They are wearing union shirts and targeting their message at Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr.

About 800 people are in town from all over the country attending a union convention this weekend. So, they banded together with their union brothers and sisters who are facing cuts.

A group formed at Hart Plaza and the crowd moved across the street to City Hall and inside. Some in the crowd said they wanted to go to the 11th floor where Mayor Bing and and the emergency manager reside.

But when they were turned away they peacefully left and marched around outside.
