We’re told the water’s fine in West Virginia, but according to residents in the area affected by the Freedom Industries chemical spill the problem still persists. Recently, we collected donations and delivered water to West Virginians who can simply not afford to buy all of theirs from the store while they wait a yet undetermined period of time for their water to be usable.
As we, along with Robin and Ed Mahonen of the Wheeling Water Warriors, were dropping off supplies to a Pratt trailer park, we became aware of someone in need in Charleston–so we popped by to pay her a visit!
She agreed to speak on camera–to tell people what things are really like for those who are affected by Freedom Industries’ irresponsibility and the reprehensibly inefficient cleanup and recovery process.
Watch this amazing woman lay the situation bare–and it’s worse than you thought. According to her, the area has had problems long before the Freedom Spill was even a possibility.
