A broad coalition of environmental and racial justice groups call upon the Democratic National Committee to focus the March 6 debate solely on racial and environmental injustice -- and will be delivering more than 80,000 petition signatures to the DNC in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, March 2 at 11:30 a.m.
Coalition Calls on the DNC to Focus on Racial and Environmental Justice in March 6 Flint Democratic Presidential Debate
The issue in Flint as in other places is not race so much as class. Flint and fracking are environmental issues that adversely affect low income communities, urban and rural, white and black and brown etc.
But the water in Washington DC was not contaminated was it?
Vile though the Republican record is - NB in Flint! - there has been a Democrat in the White House during the last few years in which the oil and gas extractors have been fracking their way, regardless of local communities and their welfare, throughout the US. Objections are all swept aside as in Texas.
The US needs a thousand Erin Brockoviches!
