On May 28, 2004 the Detroit Free Press reported, "Chanting 'Get out of Najaf, Get out of Karbala,' about 200 Muslims protested the American occupation of Iraq on Friday with signs, as drivers honked their support along a main street in the heart of the city. The protesters in this heavily Arab suburb of Detroit said they are angry about the destruction of holy sites in Iraq and the ongoing violence against its people... At least four mosques participated in the protest. The protests will continue weekly until the troops leave."
