Flint Water: A Crisis of Democracy
Welcome to the People’s Tribune!
The People’s Tribune has been reporting on the struggle for safe, clean water in Michigan for over ten years, and on the dictatorship set up in that state to hand its cities, including its water, over to the corporations. The poisoning of the city of Flint is the product of that corporate dictatorship. And if you sound the alarm about the attack on democracy you could be jailed without any evidence of a crime. This happened to Rev. Edward Pinkney of Benton Harbor, MI.
Michigan is a harbinger of what’s to come for all of America if we do not act. Below are a selection of our articles on the water struggles in Michigan. We encourage you to send your stories, order bundles of the People’s Tribune to share with others (peoplestribune.org/pt-news/subscribe), and donate to the paper. We have no paid staff and receive no grants. Also, contact us about People’s Tribune discussion groups! Go to the yellow box on this page and click on “Go to Contact Form.”
