This march is intended to be a peaceful protest against the censorship that has been put in place by President Trump. Science is the basis of all life. From clean water and air to food and safety. We want better medicine and a better understanding of our bodies and our health!! On May 10th, 1933 the Nazis raided libraries and bookstores across Germany and proceeded to burn books they did not approve of. The intellectual censorship implemented by the new Trump administration echoes much the same. Taking control of what we, the people, can and can not read in relation to the newly developed scientific discoveries that are being made. If you are waiting for Science to develop a new chemo drug for child..or anything similar this is a horrifying idea. We MUST stand together to show our president (yes he is our president) and the world that we know what is happening and we want it to STOP NOW!! In the words of a powerful MLK "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." So, gather your friends, family, co-workers and anyone else you can find and lets stand up for what is right!!! This a coordinated Sister march to March for Science DC Check the following web site for location and other updates as the event gets closer: https://www.facebook.com/events/957938401004454/

The Detroit to Flint Water Justice Journey is about lifting up the need for clean and affordable water in Michigan. The walk will begin on Friday, July 3 in Detroit where tens of thousands of citizens have had their water shut off and where the 2005 Water Affordability Plan has been passed by the Detroit City Council but never implemented. From there, the walk will continue to Highland Park where the community has been threatened with mass water shutoffs after years of administrative mismanagement. The journey will conclude on Friday, July 10 in Flint where residents with serious health problems related to unsafe water from the Flint River - hair loss, autoimmune disorders, skin burns, and children with lead poisoning - share their stories. Along the way, the walk will pass through cities, rural areas, lakes, rivers, and watersheds. The walk itself is simply the thread that weaves together a series of important public events to highlight the issues by hearing from people on the front lines – local residents personally affected by unclean and unaffordable water, concerned citizens, people committed to water justice including public health workers, attorneys, pastors, elders and youth. The key events include: the sendoff from Detroit on July 3, a cultural event and town hall meeting in Highland Park that same afternoon, a public cross-county speak out in Pontiac on Sunday, July 5, and a rally at Flint’s Town Hall on July 10. The focus is on connecting caring communities at these public events and sharing our collective concern for clean, affordable water upheld as a human right and to affirm that water is a sacred trust that should be held as a common rather than a commodity. Governor Snyder has been invited to Flint on July 10 to hear from citizens from the cities of Detroit, Highland Park, and Flint. Weeks ago, members of the state legislature were invited to a public hearing on water that involved testimony from these communities. Now, concerned citizens will return to Lansing via bus after the Flint rally to call for clean and affordable water at the state capitol.

All around the world from Detroit, Ferguson, to Ukraine, the capitalist class is on the assault. Whether they're shutting down schools, cutting food stamps, shooting unarmed people in our streets, or dropping bombs on innocent people abroad; they've made it clear that there's only one thing they want: everything! Capitalism has proven itself to be a system based on nothing more than profit and does not consider human needs. They've put the squeeze on us, it's time we rise up and put the squeeze on them! A job is a right! Food is a right! Education is a right! No more military interventions! http://www.facebook.com/events/315461158579261/

web: http://moratorium-mi.org/rally-stop-privatization-detroit-friday-july-18-1-pm/ Stop the Water Shutoffs! Restore Water Service! Hands off the Pensions! Make the Banks Pay! “It’s not one thing, it’s EVERYTHING!” – Rev. Pinkney We call on activists everywhere to come to Detroit on Friday, July 18 for a rally and march to fight the dictatorship of Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, appointed by millionaire Republican Governor Rick Synder, and backed by Wall Street bankers and the 1%. Under a state-imposed bankruptcy, the City of Detroit workers face severe cuts to their pensions and several hundred thousand people face water shutoffs. The banks who have destroyed Detroit’s neighborhoods through racist predatory subprime mortgages and saddled the City of Detroit with fraudulent subprime financing, continue to loot the people of Detroit. Detroiters have lost their democratic rights – “elected” officials serve at the pleasure of the unelected Emergency Manager, and may be fired at any time. From the loss of the auto plant jobs, loss of people from home foreclosures, attack on pensions, high insurance, replacing public schools with charter schools/Education Achievement Authority (EAA), water shut-offs, to privatization and the state helping corporations take over city assets and services such as Belle Isle, the largest urban park in the U.S., garbage department, workforce development, human services, health dept., Detroit Institute of Arts, with selling the water dept. on the horizon! Banks, billionaires and corporations made this bankruptcy up to rob the people of Detroit blind and kill democracy. To Detroiters, we say, ”It’s time to take a stand, stand up and fight for yourselves, your children, your grandchildren, your city!” To people everywhere, we say, “Stand with the people of Detroit. Your city, your services, and your pensions will be targetted next” Let’s come together to stop the takeover of Detroit, we are not going to take this anymore! United we can stop the takeover of our Detroit! http://www.facebook.com/events/252291891630740/
