    "The water cut-offs that could soon affect 30,000 Detroit households are “an effort on the
    part of the Emergency Financial Manager to intimidate people, to drive even more people
    out of the city – but, moreover, it is aimed at privatizing and breaking up the Detroit
    Water and Sewage Department,” said Abayomi Azikiwe, an organizer for the Moratorium
    Now Coalition and editor of the Pan African News Wire. A United Nations panel of
    experts called the shut-offs “an affront to human rights.”"

    It would be no weapon if folk were resourceful enough not to need the water.

    Brother RAPTOR ... do you know of any ways folk can circumvent the weapon used against them, and survive?

    The episode in Detroit is like watching death die s-l-o-w-l-y. I see the unseen hand of social engineering at work. I am witness to the marginalization of a predominantly black city. The destructive force behind this chyt is the same as that which engineered "The Tuskegee Experiments".
