Flint, USA people protest against water poisoning

This video from the USA says about itself:

19 January 2016

Hundreds of people protested outside the Capitol building in Lansing, Michigan Tuesday as Governor Rick Snyder delivered his annual State of the State address, which began by addressing the water crisis in the city of Flint.

Snyder, together with other state, federal and local officials, is deeply implicated in the decision to supply the residents of Flint, Michigan with tainted water, which put thousands of people at risk for lead poisoning and may have contributed to at least ten deaths.

Demonstrators demanded accountability, with many calling for Snyder’s resignation and indictment, and spoke of the broader social implications of the Flint water crisis.

  1. Friend,

    My thoughts are with the people of Flint today. During the Governor’s State of the State address, Snyder provided thoughtless justifications for the months he spent doing nothing while Flint residents were subjected to using lead-contaminated water.

    Frankly, I’m tired of the excuses – I want answers and real action that will keep the City of Flint safe.

    President Obama has declared a state of emergency, and federal aid is now on the way. Even filmmaker Michael Moore, a Flint native, has made it his mission to bring Gov. Snyder to justice. Now I’m asking for your help, friend.

    I’m fighting for a system that works again, and I need you with me. Click here to instantly sign my petition and call for justice for Flint.

    Together, we can make a difference and keep our families safe.

    Thank you,

    John [Conyers]
