While in Flint, MI, the people are struggling under the weight of an unjust, racist system that allows the government and companies to use land near mostly Black and/or poor neighborhoods to be exposed to not only unsafe air pollution, a less than satisfactory quality of living; but also toxic waste, lead -as we see in Flint, MI, where President Obama has just declared a state of emergency and former resident Michael Moore has an ongoing petition going to arrest Governor Synder for his “premeditated actions” of his “administrators,” Mr. Moore goes on to speak more truth by then tragically but truthfully stating:

“…you have effectively poisoned, not just some, but apparently ALL of the children in my hometown of Flint, Michigan.
And for that, you have to go to jail.
To poison all the children in an historic American city is no small feat. Even international terrorist organizations haven’t figured out yet how to do something on a magnitude like this.
But you did. Your staff and others knew that the water in the Flint River was poison — but you decided that taking over the city and “cutting costs” to “balance the budget” was more important than the people’s health (not to mention their democratic rights to elect their own leaders).
So you cut off the clean, fresh glacial lake water of Lake Huron that the citizens of Flint (including myself) had been drinking for decades and, instead, made them drink water from the industrial cesspool we call the Flint River — a body of “water” where toxins from a dozen General Motors and DuPont factories have been dumped for over a hundred years.”
Michael Moore was in Flint, MI, discussing the water crisis, calling on President Obama for help and protesting with the people against those in control over this tragic and sick attempt to put money before humanity.
