Flint resident Claire McClinton stands silently with her eyes closed and tape over her mouth during a silent protest against the change to limit public speaking to three minutes during Flint city council meetings on Friday, April 4, 2014 at Flint City Hall. Emergency Manager Darnell Earley made the change April 1, also moving the public speaking portion at the end of the meetings. "You've already taken our democracy away," she said. "Now, our voices are silenced." (AP Photo/The Flint Journal, Jake May) less
