About 500 people have held a rally and march to Gov. Rick Snyder's gated community to protest a new law making it easier for the state to take over financially struggling local governments and school districts.
The demonstration began Monday afternoon at a Washtenaw County park and ended outside the gatehouse of Snyder's gated neighborhood in Superior Township, near Ann Arbor.
People linked to the Occupy Wall Street movement joined religious groups in the Martin Luther King Day demonstration.
Protesters say the emergency financial manager law disenfranchises members of minority groups.
Snyder has said the law isn't racially motivated.
Emergency managers are in place in Benton Harbor, Pontiac, Flint and the Detroit Public Schools. Detroit's finances are under a review that could bring Michigan's largest city under state financial control.
