On the Flint Water Crisis: Activist Melissa Mays.
By PWP contributor Melissa Mays of Flint
My fellow Flint residents,
I know we are in a State-created panic since yesterday when they casually dropped a massive bomb on us on a Friday, again. The State just took away bottled water because they put dollars over our safety, again. This is nothing new to us. But should we give up? NO. It's time to get a game plan together. Call Snyder's office. Call the DEQ. Call Rich Baird. Call AG Schuette. Call Lt. Gov Brian Calley. Let's get on a bus to Lansing. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD. But most importantly, let's take care of one another and UNITE. We will force the State to do right by us like we always do. ALSO, let's disprove their lies. Everyone needs to go to City Hall Mon-Fri and pick up a water test kit from the wonderful Carma Lewis and the CORE team. If you do not have transportation, you can call CORE at 810-238-6700 and they will deliver and pick it up. Post photos of rashes and discolored water since the State keeps saying lead is our only contaminant. Take videos. Invite people over to shower in our poison or just to smell the chemical showers we are forced to use. SPEAK UP and share with the world that the State of Michigan continues to try to sweep its victims and the disaster THEY force us to live in under the rug. But we will NOT let them. WE deserve better. WE are better. WE ARE FLINT. DON'T FORGET THAT. So let's stand together and speak the truth and let these criminals hear it. People to call and/or email:
