Michael Moore talks about the fresh water disaster in Flint, Michigan on MSNBC's Meet the Press Daily:
MOORE: Well, I'm -- it can't take anything else. This was the final blow. First of all, General Motors closed the majority of the factories threw 70,000 people out of work. There's only 3,000 or 4,000 left there now in the G.M. factory.
Then, Wall Street and the banks took their licks out on Flint, and now, you know, the population's gone from almost 200,000 to 100,000, and I guess the people who couldn't get out they get this. Poisoned water. I mean, it's really -- it's a testimony to the people in Flint that there is not an uprising going on, and I certainly don't want to see anything that would cause any violence, but I think the people of Flint are ready to come out of their homes right now and go down there.
They want their government back, they want their mayor back, they voted for these people -- and they want this Governor arrested. They want this Governor prosecuted, and thank God the Obama Administration now has got the U.S. District Attorney in Flint investigating what's going on, investigating the Governor. And, our hope is that this Governor will be prosecuted for the reckless behavior. And, for knowing for a full year that this was toxic water, that the people of Flint, especially the children, were drinking it.
