DC Forum: Flint Water Crisis - This is What Austerity Looks Like
Flint, MI native, Union organizer with AFSCME Local 2401
Highly poisonous, corrosive tap water has become synonymous with Flint, Mich., over the past few weeks, as images of the rust-yellow water spread across the news and social media. While CNN described the resulting political “blame game,” to the people of Flint and of Michigan, the game has already been won by callous and over-zealous budget cuts; from every angle, the corroded pipes have “austerity” stamped on them.
The community will also be featuring a screening of "Undrinkable," a documentary made by high school students in Flint and their teacher, Randy Scott (the brother of the featured speaker), about the water crisis.
Join the PSL on Friday, January 29 for a Community Forum discussion with Roger Scott, a Flint native, on the origins of the water crisis and what the people of Flint are doing to fight back against austerity.
