Government Chemist Admits to Tampering Evidence; But There’s More… 

Government chemist admits to changing the results of tests which would send over 20,000 innocent Black people to prison. Now, imagine all of the people who aren’t admitting to the sickness? Not that this “woman” did it out of remorse.

It reminds me of a book I’ve just recently read on the history of “medical treatment” and the Black community and am appalled as everyone with a soul would be if it were included in any classes at schools across America; which of course it is not. People may get frustrated at my focusing on all this negativity and to you I say; tough. 

I do it hoping to wake people up, not because I enjoy the sickness of racism. I haven’t been able to do it nearly as much as I should or have in the past but I’m working on making a change there. 

In fact; I’m going to post this and go work on a plan to share the sickness of history in America that no one “remembers” – video or written I’m not sure but I do know it is information EVERYONE should know. More on that soon.

The below is just a small snippet of the horrors faced by Black Americans, now or 70 years ago. If you think this is a solo case you’re in for a shock. 

If This Information Doesn’t Scare You or Wake You Up..  

Recent radioactive waste, deadly toxins in the Hudson, Miami, St Louis contaminating our water and god knows what else; yet it’s all kept quiet… That alone should wake you up or get your attention. 

“…startling investigation by the Associated Press found radioactive tritium leaking from three-quarters of all commercial nuclear power sites in the United States.”

The scary part is this is not even the tip of issue. Fox News, CNN, MSNBC; they are not news channels they are opinion based networks and they compete the others with hopes of better ratings. They are putting a show on for you while force feeding the sleeping lies. 

The CIA and government control for-profit media. Anyone who doubts this I encourage to do some research, or ask me and I’ll send you a copy of documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act.

I was going to write about this tomorrow but this is a big issue, things like this,

  “The workers reportedly inhaled radioactive fumes – the same issue facing the 19 previously hospitalized workers,…”

That site now has 22 workers hospitalized. That’s one location. Open your mind… Why the media blackout?

I need a few hours sleep, I don’t recall the last time I slept lol so I have a little more work to do for a piece onthe horrific    homeless epidemic and some other articles to complete and then post tomorrow…amongst other things 😑🤓 so I am going to copy the full article below and put the original link at the end. 

This is an issue that should be of fairly great concern, I think… 

Remember: The media is controlled by the government; they don’t want this all over the news…so it isn’t; that is the red flag which makes it even more vital information and news if you ask me. 

Article follows…

Scriba, NY — US Coast Gaurd officials have cordoned off a portion of Lake Ontario this week, after aerial spotters found a visible “sheen” that is coming from a nuclear power plant in upstate New York.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary aircrew first noticed the sheen on Sunday. Shortly after, a boat crew from the Oswego station tested the sheen and a “temporary safety zone” was put in place.

The Free Thought Project spoke to the Coast Guard Sector Buffalo Command Center on Tuesday and confirmed that the zone was still closed off, and there is no information as to when it will reopen.

The oil sheen is said to be coming from the vent for the hydrogen seal system of the Fitzpatrick plant is in Scriba, New York, approximately 10 miles northeast of Oswego.

According to the Democrat and Chronicle, Entergy Corporation, which operates the plant, found the source of the oil on the roof of a turbine building, said Neil Sheehan, a public affairs officer for the NRC.

“It appears about 20 to 30 gallons that leaked were then drained through the plant’s discharge drain system to the lake,” said NRC public affairs officer Neil Sheehan.“The company has placed oil-absorbent pads on the turbine building roof and has also stopped all circulating water pumps to eliminate any further discharges.”

Despite the miles-long spill coming from their nuclear power plant, Entergy is claiming that the sheen has not impacted the operation of the plant.

It appears that this Fitzpatrick leak is likely the least worrisome of current leaks popping up around the country.

Although the media spotlight is rarely shined upon America’s aging nuclear infrastructure, U.S. nuclear power plants are decaying rapidly, precipitating numerous nuclear environmental disasters across the country. 

To give you an idea of the scope of the crisis facing America’s aging nuclear infrastructure, a startling investigation by the Associated Press found radioactive tritium leaking from three-quarters of all commercial nuclear power sites in the United States.

As the Free Thought Project reported last month, a major nuclear disaster is unfolding in Washington state at what is known as the Hanford nuclear site. There have been reports that the Hanford has been leaking massive amounts of radioactive material for over two weeks.

Only a week after 19 workers were sent for medical evaluation after waste tank they were moving was found to be leaking, 3 more workers have reportedly been injured at the site. The workers reportedly inhaled radioactive fumes – the same issue facing the 19 previously hospitalized workers, according to reports, bringing the total number of workers injured at the site up to 22.

On top of the Hanford disaster, in recent months, a fire at the Bridgeton Landfill is closing in on a nuclear waste dump, according to a Missouri emergency plan recently distributed by St. Louis County officials. The landfill fire has been burning for over five years, and they have been unable to contain it thus far.

There are clouds of smoke that have been billowing from the site, making the air in parts of St. Louis heavily contaminated. 

In 2013, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster sued Republic Services, the company responsible for the landfill, charging the company with neglecting the site and harming the local environment.

Last year, city officials became concerned that the fire may reach the nearby Lake Landfill, which is littered with decades worth of nuclear waste from government projects and weapons manufacturing. Remnants from the Manhattan Project and the Cold War have been stuffed there for generations. The site has been under the control of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) since 1990, but they failed to make any significant effort to clean up the waste.

In December of last year, the EPA announced that it would install a physical barrier in an effort to isolate the nuclear waste. But the timeline given by the EPA said it could take up to a year to complete. 

Residents aren’t comforted by that timetable, and think the government, despite years of warning, has done too little to stave off a possible environmental disaster. They are right.

To add to the legitimacy of the residents’ worries about the government’s timeline, the ground has yet to be broken, the fire is still smoldering, and the EPA just finalized, on Thursday, an Administrative Settlement Agreement and Order on Consent (Settlement) requiring Bridgeton Landfill, LLC to start work on the isolation barrier system at the West Lake Landfill Superfund Site.

Aside from the threat of the U.S. military’s decades-old nuclear waste erupting into flames in the near future, there are also two nuclear reactors inside the United States, which have been leaking for months.

In In Florida, a recent study commissioned by Miami-Dade County concluded that the area’s four-decades-old nuclear power plants at Turkey Point are leaking polluted water into Biscayne Bay.

This has raised alarm among county officials and environmentalists that the plant, which sits on the coastline, is polluting the bay’s surface waters and its fragile ecosystem, reports the NY Times. In the past two years, bay waters near the plant have had a large saltwater plume that is slowly moving toward wells several miles away that supply drinking water to millions of residents in Miami and the Florida Keys.

Samples taken during the study show everything from the deadly radioactive isotope, tritium, to elevated levels of salt, ammonia, and phosphorous. So far, according to the scientists conducting the study, the levels of tritium are too low to harm people. 

 However, in December, and January, the levels were far higher than they should be in nearby ocean water which is a telling sign of a much larger underlying problem.

“We now know exactly where the pollution is coming from, and we have a tracer that shows it’s in the national park,” said Laura Reynolds. Reynolds is an environmental consultant who is working with the Tropical Audubon Society and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which intend to file the lawsuit, according to the Times. “We are worried about the marine life there and the future of Biscayne Bay.”

Fifteen hundred miles north of the leaking reactors in Florida is the Indian Point nuclear power plant in New York. Since the beginning of this year, there’s been an uncontrollable radioactive flow from the Indian Point nuclear power plant that continues leaking into groundwater, which leads to the Hudson River, raising the specter of a Fukushima-like disaster only 25 miles from New York City.

The Indian Point nuclear plant is located on the Hudson River and serves the electrical needs of an estimated 2 million people. In January, while preparing a reactor for refueling, workers accidentally spilled some contaminated water containing the radioactive hydrogen isotope tritium, causing a massive radiation spike in groundwater monitoring wells, with one well’s radioactivity increasing by as much as 65,000 percent.

The tritium leak is the ninth in just the past year, four of which were severe enough to shut down the reactors. But the most recent leak, however, according to an assessment by the New York Department of State as part of its Coastal Zone Management Assessment, contains a variety of radioactive elements such as strontium-90, cesium-137, cobalt-60, and nickel-63, and isn’t limited to tritium contamination.

As the utility companies and government agencies continue to downplay the severity of these situations, the residents who live the closest to these spots are already feeling the effects.

According to a recent report, Radiation and Public Health Project researchers compared the state and national cancer data from 1988-92 with three other five-year periods (1993-97, 1998-02, and 2003-07). The results, published in 2009, show the cancer rates going from 11 percent below the national average to 7 percent above in that timespan. Unexpected increases were detected in 19 out of 20 major types of cancer. Thyroid cancer registered the biggest increase, going from 13 percent below the national average to 51 percent above.

While the U.S. war machine spends hundreds of billions of dollars per year waging war against humanity, Americans at home are dying from a crumbling nuclear infrastructure. The realization that multiple nuclear disasters are currently unfolding across the country, while the mainstream media remains silent, speaks to the fact that most media is owned by the same benefactors that have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo.

Game of Thrones Cast Joins IRC to Campaign for Syrian Refugees

I hope by now that mostly everyone is at the VERY LEAST aware of Syria and the refugees all over the world, it’s sad to say there is still awareness being raised because, it at least seems, as though too many in this  world simply do not care. The many horror Syrian’s have been undergoing the past few years and counting have been rejected by too much of the world, be it people or governments; so organizations such as International Rescue Committee (IRC),  have taken it upon themselves to do what any and all of us able should do; especially our governments.

Now IRC and members of the cast of Game of Thrones have teamed up to raise money and awareness together. Before I go on, I have to give a quick rant and I apologize for it as I realize it’s uncalled for at this moment but I can’t help it:

If you know me, you should know I am 100% obsessed with Game of Thrones; the book series, not HBO’s TV version. They’ve taken arguably the best story line and characters and tore it all apart, went to put it back together, forgot how it originally was and the end result is/was a mess. I watch the show as fan fiction even though it angers me beyond words lol. I’m passionate, damn it. The story is massively different; the characters personalities and roles are wrong, virtually everything is wrong with the show, if one asks me. X_X But I digress. *ahem* <Sorry.

One thing that’s NOT wrong, however, is what actors and actresses from the fan adaption of Game of Thrones have decided to do in regards to speaking out for Syrian refugees.

Rescue Has No Boundaries is a joint campaign between the International Rescue Committee and the actors and actresses of HBO‘s Game of Thrones, (READ THE BOOKS!) to bring awareness and raise money for Syrian refugees.

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 12.23.10 AMThough it’s sad this world needs to depend on entertainers to raise money and/or bring awareness to issues such as Syrian Refugees as well as the conflict in Syria, I think it’s highly respectable of every actor and actress involved in Rescue Has No Boundaries to be using their voice for these people… I admire them for standing up for the Syrian people and a world crisis that is not reported or covered enough or if so it is all too often misreported; the problems in Syria and the Syrian people who have been ignored and rejected for extremely too long.

Article:

“Mass exodus: millions on the move, escaping war, famine and destruction,” Headey says in the PSA, describing the experience of the roughly 11 million people who have either left the country or been displaced inside Syria since 2011.

The IRC is the only international relief agency working to help people still in Syria, as well as in countries such as Turkey and Greece that have received the bulk of people who have fled the war-torn nation. Headey explains in the clip that the IRC hopes to raise enough cash from the public to assist 3 million people.

FULL COVERAGE:  The Global Refugee Crisis

Although people can donate on the IRC’s website, for the real super fans out there, the campaign has partnered with charity platform Omaze to raffle off cool Game of Thrones prizes, including a chance for supporters to hang with the cast at the season six premiere in April.

The violence and war will surely continue on upcoming episodes, but Headey and company are committed to peace.

“Every month, hundreds of thousands flee their homes. Refugees, families, children struggling to stay alive,” the cast members say in a montage. “Real people now on the most dangerous journey of all. What would you do to protect your life, your family, your future? You can help.”

Sign the petition here and listen to Game of Thrones actors/actresses speak out on the struggles and needs Syrian refugees endure, what the world can do, is doing; and what we can do.You can watch the video at this link – I can’t the video to embed for some reason. =(

URGENT:Amazing Black Mother Savagely Beaten, Living in Torment; We Need to Help Her Demand Justice! PLEASE WATCH

UPDATE & URGENT ATTENTION NEEDED FOR ANTWYNETTE HOUSTON! PLEASE VIEW!

Black Female Police Brutality Survivor needs 3rd Surgery Cleveland Black Lives Matter

 

First is my plea to ALL ACTIVISTS. WHAT IF SHE WERE YOUR MOM?! SISTER, WIFE??…. NO ONE IS STEPPING UP; SHE IS SUFFERING AND CARRYING IT ALL; PLEASE LET’S ORGANIZE AND HELP HER OBTAIN WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY HERS SO SHE AND HER SON CAN HEAL AND MOVE ON!

please.
As I say, BLACK LIVES MATTER, and so does Antwynette Houston and her little boy. After suffering brutal assault, after a funeral and as her 9 yr old watches from the car, she is left with her shoulder so shattered (is the best way I know to describe it) and what’s more; she is left to deal with it along with everything else on her own while the abusive, sadistic officer wanders around freely. WE NEED YOUR HELP; IF YOU CAN ORGANIZE CHICAGO PLEASE, PLEASE HEAR ME OUT!

Video I just made, or skip below:

Antwynette lives in tremendous pain from being a mother and worrying to physical and trauma and of course, due to the expensive surgery (SHE STILL NEEDS ONE MORE BUT HAS NO FUNDS! I’ve got her gofundme at the bottom along with her paypal) she has the constant threat of being without a home each month. This strong woman is holding up the world and I do wish we as activists against racism and police abuse could help every person in need, I know that’s a lot easier said than done.

I’m not asking for that. I‘m asking, pleading and begging with those who organize protests and accomplish so much via them to please, rally up and help boycott the Kentucky Derby so her state and local government will realize we are NOT going to take racism, hate, police violence and disrespect -to say the least- towards women!

PLEASE SHARE… We *CAN* DO THIS! Imagine if this were your mother or sister or wife??? She is the best mom in the world; she is raising a brilliant little boy and she is doing it all with love and care for him. It’s beyond time something good happens to her, please, help me help her or simply help her; either way… please don’t ignore this…..

It’s sad that we have to ask and engage in protests and boycotts just so this horrible government and the law enforcement ‘officials’ will give the victim the justice and/or health care/financial comp/etc not only deserved but what any human with a good soul would want to happen for her and her 9 year old child without her having to take any more action.

She doesn’t have the money to obtain the surgeries she needs from the horrifically broken shoulder this off duty officer shattered; after her last expensive surgery (off borrowed money) she now is forced to live with homelessness as a possibility every month… Beyond that it gets no better. Antwynette lives in horrible, excruciating pain while longing to get back to living her life as her and her child were… As she struggles with these traumas, she continues raising her brilliant son with the most love any child could need; I wish I could have had a mother like her; he is blessed and I know her strength and love will be the foundation of his healing.

I don’t have kids but I love them; I can only imagine how Antwynette feels as she tries to hold up all that’s going on around her, waiting for the day when perhaps justice of any sort will be given so she can heal physically and emotionally!

So many mothers suffer and worry…and hurt over the pain of their child. He didn’t deserve this; she sure as hell didn’t deserve this- and we as the people, the people who KNOW the truth and KNOW we can make a difference must stand up for victims… ALL victims; and we can! Spread knowledge if nothing else, please…. If we unite and get out and make it so no one can say they haven’t heard about this atrocity, then perhaps things will move along a bit faster.

In Chicago and all over we’ve managed to unite and protest. This strong Black mother along side her precious and intelligent little boy will survive and get through this; I know it- we cannot settle for anything less; we won’t!

But what about the RIGHT NOW? … Do people not know? Do you not care? Feel you can’t contribute or… why are YOU inactive towards this cause?

Antwynette writes:
“For nearly 3 years I’ve endured severe pain, been unable to work and facing potential homelessness on a monthly bases. I continue to wait for the city of Louisville to pay for damages in which they have acknowledged responsibility.

My encounter with the Louisville Metro Police Department revealed several problems for citizens if they are physically harmed or left permanently injured by police personnel. Despite whether you are innocent of any charges or wrong doing, you will be left responsible for the cost of any and all medical bills resulting from your encounter with police until they feel like paying.
————–
I found out around August 2014, a whole year later, that I needed another surgery and that my injuries were more severe than originally thought. I asked the Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine to intervene and press charges against the officer, he refused. I’ve since filed a lawsuit against the city and Officer Scott Sturgeon.

Well now I’m upset! I’m broken physically, emotionally, and mentally; and quite frankly, I feel compelled to take action myself and try to use public support to persuade the City of Louisville (or Mayor of Louisville) to do the right thing by making me whole again and charging now retired officer Scott sturgeon with felony assault. I’m asking each and every citizen of the City of Louisville & across the country to stand with me, and tell the City of Louisville, Kentucky; Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky; and the Louisville Metro Police Department to acknowledge the Officer’s excessive use of force against me over a parking violation & charge him, to acknowledge the injuries caused to me by the officer, to publicly apologize to me, and most importantly, pay all of my medical expenses (past, present, and future) that are directly related to the officer’s excessive use of force against me.

Until the City of Louisville corrects this misdeed, I’m also asking each of you to join me in boycott of the 2016 Kentucky Derby horse races being held at Churchill Downs and also all festivities surrounding the Kentucky Derby itself. I ask you to stand united with me, and please sign this petition to help right the injustice heaped on me. I sincerely thank you for any support you are willing to give me.”

Check out her written story as well as sign and share the mentioned petition by clicking HERE. Please, please be sure to share.

As in my video I say, the petition is simply to say you will join the rest of us in boycotting the Kentucky Derby, which brings in tons of money to the corrupt town. If they see their numbers go down, that people want the government to treat ALL of us with care, concern, respect and medical attention that is deserved beyond a doubt to victims, this is the most basic and mandatory of actions; give medical care to those in need!

Please spread the word; please let us find a way to give her relief from all the burdens she has had to hold up, not only as a mother, but ALL of it; from the mental and emotional to the financial stress and pain, she has suffered! And let no one forget, the extreme and very painful injury she received by an off duty officer.

She lives in pain, every, day. She’s a kind and good woman and mother; shouldn’t we do all we can to give her the kindness she deserves? Shouldn’t we be fighting hard as we can to demand her suffering to stop?!

How can we NOT do something??

The following is the previous article I wrote, for the interested. Old article begins:

In Kentucky, one early morning, Antwynette Houston pulled into a shop with her 9 year old son. Imagine if this were you. Imagine the trauma both her and her child endure both mentally and she also was severely physically wounded.

An off duty police officer approached her over something as insane as how her car was parked….
This guy for all she knew could have been anyone, he just stated he was a cop, and refused, refused, to call the police or show his badge; in any way identify himself as an actual cop.  After verbally harassing her for awhile, she was dragged out of her car and brutally attacked by an off duty police officer. 
Turns out he wasn’t even an officer, he’s a Sergent- doesn’t work the streets – but felt the need to harass this Black woman over ‘how she was parked.’ For that, she winds up being yanked out of her car -after she told him she had just had surgery a year prior,- breaks her shoulder & causing other serious injuries.

I feel her telling you is so much more powerful than anything I can say, so I beg you to please watch her video. She is in need of a 3rd surgery; in need of attention and justice. Let’s do all we can to help her get her life back on track- lord knows what this has done to her traumatically… This is exactly why we -anyone who cares for human rights in general but especially Black Lives Matter- need to help and bring attention to her traumatic case…
Here is her story;

Please donate to help her obtain the surgery she needs; the justice she deserves. If the media and the world is going to ignore the majority of police brutality cases, it is our job to help and expose in any way we can. If you can’t afford to donate, please, please share.
GoFundMe Surgery Account – Please donate what you can OR share; please!
Or if you prefer you can donate via PayPal by using/sending to the email address: wynetthouston@yahoo.com
Thank you so much… Please, please share…

Chicago Residents Water Contaminated; Filing Lawsuit Against the City

While in Flint, MI the people are suffering, yet their Governor Rick Synder still roams freely. The state of Michigan has said it will spend $28 million on “solving” this crisis. Disgusting Governor has promised to place more funds towards the people of Flint in his upcoming budget proposal.

Money spending has been proposed to be used to buy extra bottles of water and to buy filters and similar systems to watch and track any “developmental  delays” in young kids.The major disaster the lead water has produced has gone ignored and unheard for too long. Now, however, that is about to change as Flint will be included as part of an emergency bill.

As I’ve noted  before in many posts, tragically Flint is not the only place in America where this sort of greedy abuse by the government can be found. Coming in next to Flint (yet receiving none of the media’s attention) is the people of Chicago against the city of Chicago for not informing anyone what-so-ever that their water had been contaminated and that for the past 8 years at least residents of the city were drinking lead contaminated water.

There has to be

URGENT-State of Emergency RE Water in Flint, MI

“People are already experiencing skin lesions, hair loss, chemical-induced hypertension, vision loss and depression. Children exposed to lead experience developmental impacts such as lowered IQ, decreased ability to pay attention, and diminished academic achievement.”

First, there is a petition and short article below my rant. I apologize for talking so much but the lack of humanity makes me so disgusted. Anyway!
So before I had so much of a chance to do in depth research regarding Flint, Michigan, a press release stating the mayor has called for a state of emergency due to widespread lead-poisoned water. Sadly, this isn’t isolated to this one “incident” and yes those others are here in the states, happening now too. I’ll have more on Flint and others shortly…Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 1.27.47 PM

For now, the people of Flint are suffering physical, mental and living with fear due to unsafe, unclean & undrinkable water.

Yes, of course there is bottle water; which not all can afford, but even those who obtain it are being robbed intentionally as this water pollution could have been stopped and prevented.

To those who think like the person whom originally brought up bottled water being the solution, I again say, temporarily there is some bottled water, but for how long?

Moreover, think of the money people & corporations make when everyone needs their  “product”. That is one of many things I’ll be researching and sharing very soon. The people are not only being abused but also used for heartless money. That’s obvious I believe, but again I’ll have more research regarding Flint and too many other places soon.

Article below, petition with it… I will have a proper post up soon with information not shared and also a video. Remember, this is blatant racism; and it kills. Water poisons are not the only risk factor too many Black Americans are faced with when speaking on environmental issues in the community. This is barely gracing the tip of it… That should enrage and scare you, we must fight, educate; we can get change but we have to fight for it.

Of course Black Lives DO Matter; that’s why issues like this are even more important. There’s no way all these issues which mainly and greatly target the Black community are happening “by chance” or for any other reason.

Logic and living in America even if your white, you should be able to see clearly how real and how horrific things are. Racism, hate crimes and murders allowed and executed by the US government within the Black community.  again, disproportionately. And don’t forget, the majority of these victims are unarmed, or a kid, or ‘they ran and he may have had a gun’ or because the cop ‘thought he had a gun but turned out to be skittles’.

American history, TRUE Black History proves both the environmental issues and the police being able to kill innocent people at will and walk away to be more than a coincidence. During the civil rights movement in the 60s the FBI documented wanting to divide and conquer and to ‘get rid of’ the Black community. Those documents were leaked and now can be found; official papers writing their true, racist feelings and sick desires.

Right now it seems the government hasn’t changed much when usually it is the Black community whom are the targets; whom have to deal with loved ones being murdered for no reason, even children and the elderly, only to add salt to the wound by watching the murderer be released after being found not guilty. After experiencing the ‘hardships’ of the police’s tragic but expected paid vacation  causes such as having nothing to do with ones time. But more frequently than not they need not worry; most cops are headed back in with their badge to kill on their chest within a few weeks, on the streets again is the murderer, even though they were caught committing a hate crime, a murder, a beating, etc.

So screw anyone who thinks environmental issues, such as the above or police brutality, aren’t related greatly to racism has no right to spread their self pity and lies. I can prove the racism and give numbers on how Blacks and whites are impacted by environmental related issues. Thing is they can’t offer any form of research or factual evidence unless it was ‘self made’ or created by their friend. It baffles me we have people who actually can say racism isn’t real or involved in this… Wow.

The mayor of Flint, MI just declared a state of emergency due to widespread lead-poisoning caused by unsafe drinking water.

Public health studies have shown that lead levels have doubled in Flint since the city switched its public water supply to the Flint River in April 2014, due in part to the negligence of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.

While the city’s water has been switched to a different source, it’s not certain that the water is now safe. Even worse, the public health crisis the lead-laden water has created has not been addressed. The most vulnerable to lead poisoning are children and pregnant women.

As the mayor pointed out in her declaration, the effects of lead poisoning are significant, irreversible and create huge needs for increased social services, such as special education and mental health services, and the juvenile justice system.

People are already experiencing skin lesions, hair loss, chemical-induced hypertension, vision loss and depression. Children exposed to lead experience developmental impacts such as lowered IQ, decreased ability to pay attention, and diminished academic achievement.

This petition calls on Gina McCarthy, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to take control of ensuring the safety of Flint’s water from the Michigan DEQ.  Additionally, the EPA must work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services; and the state of Michigan to develop a funded, long-term, lead action plan to ensure that the citizens of Flint will not be abandoned.
