Impact of Toxic Drinking Water Is Clear; DoD Is Perpetual Offender

Clean, safe water - Worth protection
The corporate movement to privatize water departments in many communities is a sought-after policy displacement of poisoning water with efforts to monetize and control water, and water systems.

Water is life. Clean water is the hallmark of civilizations, as the world sees in Gaza where safe water is under attack as a means of destroying Gazan society. 

Flint, Michigan, Jackson, Mississippi, Big Ag and 100s of U.S. military facilities bring into focus why we should not privatize water, and why we should pay rapt attention to protecting water.

"The Water and Wastewater Systems Sector is vulnerable to a variety of attacks, including contamination with deadly agents, physical attacks such as the release of toxic gaseous chemicals and cyber attacks. If these attacks were realized, the result could be large numbers of illnesses or casualties and/or a denial of service that would also impact public health and economic vitality. Critical services such as firefighting and healthcare (hospitals), and other dependent and interdependent sectors, such as Energy, Food and Agriculture, and Transportation Systems, would suffer negative impacts from a denial of service in the Water and Wastewater Systems Sector,"
warns the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Who knew water systems were vulnerable to organized, domestic enemies? Everyone.

Erin Brockovich and Suzanne Boothby report:

Once again, the science is in, confirming what advocates have been saying for years.

One of the largest cancer incidence cohort studies in the U.S. just came out, and it shows alarming rates of cancer for civilian and military personnel who lived and worked at North Carolina’s Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, considered one of the worst toxic sites in the United States.

I hope all who have suffered feel a sense of validation. For those who have lost loved ones due to this terrible pollution, my heart goes out to you. No words can replace what you have lost.

What a betrayal. Democrats will not help.
