MDEQ:  Stop Sacrificing our Health for Industry! 

Demand an End to MDEQ Failures
from Flint to Southfield to Detroit

Thursday, June 9

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

MDEQ Offices, Cadillac Place (the old GM Building)

3044 W Grand Blvd Detroit, MI 48202

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is supposed to be working to protect our health. Instead, they’re worried about the bottom line for corporations that do not care about environmental quality and continue to pollute our air, land and water and facilitate the privatizing of our public water systems. Our concerns:

  • The poisoning of Flint
  • MDEQ granting a permit for drilling for oil in Southfield
  • MDEQ has stated that they plan to approve a permit for a massive expansion of a hazardous waste facility on Detroit’s east side
  • Marathon to apply for a permit to dump more sulfur dioxide into the air in Southwest Detroit when the area was already failing to meet federal air quality standards for sulfur dioxide

We will deliver thousands of signatures to demand that our health become the priority, not bottom line greed.

Signs provided or bring your own.
