It's mass murder. Toxic water in Michigan will go on killing for years to come as so many have been incurably poisoned. Ironically, the victims are still paying taxes for the poison running from their faucets. Unions and communities have organized to help. And what is Nestle's doing? Draining their water for profit.
Excerpt from DEMOCRACY NOW
MELISSA MAYS: I'm Melissa Mays from Water You Fighting For? And it's a play on words, so it's "Water," W-A-T-E-R, "You Fighting For?"
AMY GOODMAN: Melissa, do you live in Flint?
MELISSA MAYS: I do live in Flint.
AMY GOODMAN: How have you been affected by the poisoned water?
MELISSA MAYS: Well, all three of my sons are anemic now. They have bone pain every single day. They miss a lot of school because they're constantly sick. Their immune systems are compromised. Myself, I have seizures. I have diverticulosis now. I have to go in February 25th for a consultation on a liver biopsy. Almost every system of our bodies have been damaged. And I know that we're not the only one. I'm getting calls from people that are so sick, and they don't know what to do.
AMY GOODMAN: How old are your boys?
