Michigan: Protesters Rally Outside Snyder's Speech to Call for Resignation

January 20, 2016

Outside Snyder’s speech Tuesday, residents rallied to continue calls for his resignation and arrest. Among those present was Melissa Mays, who says her children have suffered a rash of lasting health problems—from cognitive impairment to anemia—as a result of the poisoned water.

Melissa Mays: "They put poison into our homes. We fed it to our children. We were promised it was safe. The state failed us. They lied. They took away our rights to protect our children and our families. They have taken away our children’s futures. We are here to say we are not going to be your victims anymore."
