We Are All Flint, Michigan!
Are you as outraged as we are by the reckless disregard for life Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has repeatedly shown? Last summer, Progressive Democrats of America and People Demanding Action joined with our allies to defend the basic human right to water in Detroit.
A broad coalition marched, organized call-in days, and otherwise protested against Snyder’s unfair austerity policies. We fought him and we won. We’d hoped that he'd learned his lesson. Clearly he hasn't.
Now, we're asking you to join with PDA and our allies—notably Bernie Sanders, and award-winning documentarian and Flint native Michael Moore—to demand accountability. Michael Moore is asking us to join him through an online petition.
Bernie released a statement last Saturday saying, “Thousands may have been exposed to potential brain damage from lead. Gov. Snyder should resign.”
Michael Moore goes even further. He says “Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, along with the premeditated actions of his administrators, has effectively poisoned the children of Flint by allowing lead and other toxins to enter their drinking water. The consequences are devastating now and will be for generations to come. For this outrageous catastrophe, Gov. Snyder must resign—and go to jail.”
What do you think is the appropriate level of accountability? Is Michael Moore Right? Is Bernie? Both? What Will You Do for Flint?
Donate whatever you can afford by card or check to help us continue our critically important organizing.
