WHITE MARSH, Md. (AP) -- General Motors' Powertrain Baltimore Transmission Plant has avoided a planned weeklong shutdown prompted by slow vehicle sales .

Plant spokesman John Raut said demand has improved for some company vehicles, including the Chevy Silverado and Sierra pickups trucks for which the plant makes automatic transmissions.

The shutdown at the plant that employs 238 people was originally scheduled to start Monday.

Seventy-nine employees have been laid off in White Marsh since last year because of a slowdown in demand for its transmissions. The White Marsh, Md., plant makes Pontiac six-speed Allison transmissions and a hybrid 2-mode.

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
