The notice read: “Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancerSome people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer.” The county is seeking to address its financial problems by forcing residents to pay 49.5 percent more for the poisoned waterHunt, who told the WSWS that water rates are already very high, said, “Last month I paid $193 for water and went several days without waterIt is time for the working class to take this country backWe need to stand up for what’s right.” The plight of workers in Martin County has struck a chord in Flint, Michigan, where working class residents have fought a years-long battle against the lead poisoning of their water and the criminal indifference of Democrats and Republicans alikeThe similarity of the situations in Kentucky and Flint underscores the fact that all workers, regardless of race, face the same struggle and the same enemies. Tony Palladeno has been fighting the water poisoning in Flint for nearly four yearsLast April, Tony, his wife Leah and four others were arrested at a public meeting for demanding answers about the threat to foreclose on homes of those who either would not or could not pay for water that was not safe to use. Tony, who formerly worked in the mail room and maintenance department at the Flint Journal newspaper, told the WSWS, “What is going on today is the attempt to take everything from us that has been fought for through the sit-down strikes in Flint to the fight of the coal miners against black lungLike the worker in Kentucky and the teacher in Louisiana, six of us from Flint were arrested at a public meetingThey slammed down my wife Leah and bruised her badlyArrests at public meetings are becoming the new normBut don’t get used to it! We workers have to stick togetherMy message to the people in eastern Kentucky is don’t let them divide youThe Democrats and Republicans are the same! They’re trying to eliminate the working class.” #content .campaign > .censorship { background: #d8f0f8; padding: 30px; } #content .campaign > .censorship > h3, #content .campaign > .censorship > h4, #content .campaign > .censorship > p { font-family: "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; } #content .campaign > .censorship > h3 { font-size: 22px; font-weight: bold; color: #000; background: none; padding: 0; margin: 0; } #content .campaign > .censorship > h4 { font-size: 18px; font-weight: bold; color: #000; margin: 4px 0 0 0; } #content .campaign > .censorship > p { font-size: 17px; margin: 20px 0 0 0; } #content .campaign > .censorship > ul { margin: 20px 0 0 0; list-style-type: none; } #content .campaign > .censorship > ul > li { display: inline-block; width: 24%; } #content .campaign > .censorship > ul > li > a { color: #000; } #content .campaign > .censorship > ul > li > a:hover { color: #cc0000; } #content .campaign > .censorship > ul > li > a > span { display: inline-block; vertical-align: middle; } #content .campaign > .censorship > ul > li > a > .circle { width: 24px; height: 24px; background: #000; border-radius: 24px; padding: 0; margin: 0 5px 0 0; } #content .campaign > .censorship > ul > li > a > .circle > .icon { position: relative; top: 4px; left: 4px; } Fight Google's censorship!
