Detroit Water Shutofffs - blockade at Homrich from Stephen ‘Fuzzytek’ Boyle on Vimeo.

July 10, 2014 concerned citizens rallied in the early morning outside the contractor handling water shutoffs for Detroit Water and Sewage Department (DWSD). This footage is from early in the rally and unfortunately battery power died before footage of Detroit Police arriving and 10 persons being arrested and taken to Mound Road Correctional Facility. Baxter Jones was blockading in a wheelchair, risking arrest and was dragged out of the path of a Homrich supervisor’s truck coming in for work. Bail was made for those arrested and they will be in court for charges of disturbing the peace(?). Most of those arrested were white, while 83% of Detroit is black.

Detroit Basement Water - Bank Owned Property from Stephen ‘Fuzzytek’ Boyle on Vimeo.

Water shutoffs aren’t happening to abandoned structures all over the city. Many of these bank owned properties wait years before they are taken care of … if they are found. You can’t hear the water driving by. You have to do some exploring to get into many houses. Detroit also had a harsh winter and for those houses without a foundation - PVC pipes bursting in the crawlspace could have happened.

Camouflage for #DetroitWater - cover up the bright blue when you see it. That is the tell-tale mark

I’m not sure if this is legit. If it is, that’s fantastic.

It is strongly recommended that anyone doing this is not connected in any manner with the house.

Rally to Stop the Privatization of Detroit

Friday, July 18 - 1pm

Hart Plaza, Detroit

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!

Production: What Matters Most

As I watched this video open with water I thought of the water shutoffs in Detroit.

IN MY OPINION - The sad fact is the video depicts both a community mind that cares, and the sad indifference we sometimes have for each other’s needs, or perhaps perceived needs. We are groomed by society with the notion that we need this or that to be respected or valuable in the eyes of others. 

Indeed what matters most in my world is for people to engage in dancing with the conversation of creating a bigger future than for one’s self. Sometimes we have to tackle personal differences and those played up by the media and even people we’ve allowed influence our lives. There’s a moral compass within each of us that points out what we believe is right or wrong. Honestly its perception… but what filters have we created? Are you seeing but not believing? Are you touching reality but can’t feel it?

We push through the numbness and embrace life and living in many ways, some very extreme. Always remember change doesn’t come from being NORMAL. Change comes from the unusual and is a gift when we find it that we desire to pass along to others.

Pay it forward - Pass along the change you find today.

March Against Monsanto #3 - Charity Hicks - #WageLove from Stephen ‘Fuzzytek’ Boyle on Vimeo.

Charity Hicks speaking about the crisis the world is facing with Monsanto and other corporate presences dictating the food we eat. The only way to survive is working with community to sustain away from the system. We must “Wage Love” to have what our bodies need.
This event was May 24, 2014 in Detroit. The location - Grand Circus Park.
Sadly Charity passed July 30, 2014 after being struck while waiting at a bus stop in New York City. She was to be speaking the next day at a Food Justice conference. Her presence in Detroit and beyond will continue to be felt - she’s a sister to so many freedom fighters.
