IGE Talks: The Flint Water Crisis

IGE Talks LogoWe invite you to our next talk Thursday, Feb. 18. 2016 at 7 pm at IGE, 1118 Wealthy SE, Grand Rapids MI 49506.

The Flint Water Crisis remains in the news as a problem created by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, that would have been better if he had left it alone. Individuals will make short presentations, first on the science of polluted water. We will follow with a review of the “Emergency Finance Manager” laws, which the right wing passed to squeeze every nickel until it screams. Behind the Flint decision was that Detroit Water, renamed the Great Lakes Water Authority, should be bankrupted and privatized. When Governor Snyder is driven by profit schemes to privatize public utilities, then public health is damaged and children suffer for the rest of their lives.
