​Detroit Part I: Extinguishing the homeless & shutting off human rights

In this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin, features BTS’ exclusive on-the-ground coverage from Detroit, Michigan, beginning with a look at a tent city near downtown, where the crew witnessed a cop putting out the only source of warmth for the homeless population with a fire extinguisher. Abby discusses the shutoff of water services for thousands of residents across the city and speaks with Andrea Malone, a Detroit resident struggling to pay her water bills about what it’s like to face having your access to this vital necessity taken away. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Beulah Walker, a volunteer with the Detroit Water Brigade, an organization working to prevent water shutoffs and distribute water to residents most in need in the city.
