A controversial Florida pastor banned last week from protesting at a Detroit-area mosque on Friday cut short a demonstration at a city hall largely drowned out by counter-protesters.
Terry Jones, 59, had vowed to return this week, saying that his ban on demonstrating in front of the landmark Islamic Center of America in heavily muslim Dearborn had violated free speech protections of the Constitution.
“We are here today to speak out on issues that pertain to all American citizens,” Jones said, using a wireless microphone at a podium set up at the top of the city hall steps.
Separate barricaded zones were created for Jones’ protest on the steps of city hall and for counter-protesters across Michigan Avenue, a busy four-lane street. Jones’ 75 supporters were outnumbered by about five-to-one.
