Do Not Send Us Bottles of Water. Instead, Join Us in a Revolt

  1. Demand the removal and arrest of Rick Snyder, the Governor of Michigan.
  2. Make the State of Michigan pay for the disaster that the State of Michigan created.
  3. The federal government must then be placed in charge.
  4. Evacuate any and all Flint residents who want to leave now.
  5. For those who choose to stay in Flint, FEMA must create a temporary water system in each home.

Β 

If you want to help Flint,Β sign the petition, demand that the federal government take action, and then get involved yourself, wherever you live, so that this doesn’t happen to you — and so that the people we elect know they can no longer break the law as they rule by fiat or indifference. We deserve much better than this.

 

For a better world,

 

Michael Moore

The American town with water too poisonous to drink

Water towers in America usually boast the names of the communities they serve, often with a mascot or slogan; totems of civic pride. Not here. Smudged by driving snow on a recent morning, this one merely proclaims: FLINT WATER PLANT. And this one stands for betrayal, hardship and scandal. Cast your eyes down to the neighbourhoods beyond; homes with sagging roofs and dilapidated porches, and you will see them, bundled-up figures shuffling down the streets. Some carry their loads in their arms, others push trollies through the drifts.
