Making Us All Sicker: Detroit Water Shut-Offs May Well Have Caused Irreparable Damage 23.5.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Despite widespread concern across the US and around the world, the water crises in Detroit and Flint, as well as many neighboring towns and suburbs, have only worsened. Now the emphasis on profits over clean water access for all residents is making people physically ill, says water warrior Monica Lewis Patrick. This story was published only because of readers like you. Support independent journalism: Make a donation to Truthout today! This story we've been telling this season, in Anne Elizabeth Moore and Melissa Mendes' comics journalism series exclusive to Truthout, started for folks like Nicole Hill  three years ago . For many across the nation and throughout the world, that was when concern for Detroit's water crisis started -- and ended. Focus shifted to  Flint, Michigan , and the work of people like Melissa Mays, shortly thereafter. But as we saw last month, these threats to public health have barely been addressed in the courts in that time. What movement has been made to ensure water as a  human ...

Trump's Exhausting First Road Trip 23.5.2017 Politics on
President Donald Trump has only just begun his first road trip outside the United States, and he’s already “exhausted,” according to one of his own advisors. This may or may not be true, since anything either Trump or any of his spokespeople say at this point has to be taken with a grain of salt ― especially considering the “exhausted” comment was given as an excuse for a Trump gaffe (more on that in a bit). But this week’s calendar for Trump seems to have been constructed on the theme of: “Any Trump campaign promises left unbroken? Well, let’s see how many we can break in a single week!” Let’s begin with Trump’s reported exhaustion. Trump apparently tried to cut the length of his first trip in half, because nine days on the road was just too much to ask. On Day Two of his trip, he’s already got an advisor explaining a gaffe away because of exhaustion. That doesn’t exactly bode well for the rest of the trip, does it? Especially since he made so much political hay on the campaign trail over the issue of ...

40% of Utah/Arizona Navajo Reservation residents still have no running water 23.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Monument Valley, Ariz. • On the outskirts of Monument Valley, touching the Arizona-Utah border, a water well is encased in a brick building behind a barb-wired fence. A few cattle graze nearby, mooing to occasionally pierce the quiet. Residents say the well is one of two in the area, a couple miles from a small town on the Navajo Reservation. One well is a direct line to hotels. This one, leading to a one-spigot watering hole a few miles away, is the main water supply for about 900 people living...

Chevron Was Just Fabricating a Lie to Get Out of Paying for a Cleanup 22.5.2017
MP3 Link Janine Jackson: When we talk about environmental justice, the emphasis is usually on the first word. That might be what comes to mind first when you think about Chevron, formerly Texaco, dumping some 16 billion gallons of toxic oil waste into the land and water of indigenous and farmer communities in Ecuador. But when, having poisoned these communities, which have seen increases in cancer and other health problems, Chevron refuses to clean it up, and instead embarks on a decades-long effort to intimidate and silence anyone who tries to call attention to the disaster they've created and profited from -- well, then, it's clear that it's a story about justice. And, in this case, years and years of cross-national organizing and solidarity. Here with the latest on Chevron and Ecuador is Paul Paz y Miño. He's associate director at Amazon Watch . He joins us now by phone from here in New York. Welcome to CounterSpin, Paul Paz y Miño. Paul Paz y Miño: Thank you. Well, let's start right where we are. ...

Medea Benjamin: Congress Should Halt Trump's $110 Billion Arms Deal Over Saudi Atrocities 22.5.2017
In his first foreign trip abroad as president, Donald Trump traveled this weekend to Saudi Arabia, where he signed an arms deals totaling $110 billion. This comes in addition to more than $115 billion offered in arms deals to Saudi Arabia by President Obama during his time in office. The deal also includes precision-guided munitions, which the Obama administration had stopped selling Saudi Arabia out of fear they would be used to bomb civilians amid the ongoing Saudi-led bombing campaign in Yemen. Since 2015, 10,000 people have been killed in the ongoing fighting, which has also decimated the country's health, water, sewage and sanitation systems. The arms deal includes tanks, artillery, ships, helicopters, a missile defense system and cybersecurity technology. We speak to Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CodePink and author of the book Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the US-Saudi Connection. TRANSCRIPT This is a rush transcript.
