UPDATE: Protesters unveil anti-Snyder ice sculpture

UPDATE 11:14 a.m. – Protesters calling for Governor Rick Snyder to resign have unveiled an ice sculpture they have dyed brown to represent tainted Flint water.

Fewer than 20 people gathered outside Snyder’s office at the Romney Building in downtown Lansing.

We have crews there and will have updates for you online and on 6 News.

LANSING, MI. (WLNS) – Anger, frustration and fear, these are all the emotions generated because of the Flint Water Crisis.

Michigan film maker Michael Moore has been vocally passionate about the emergency as well and has organized a rally against Governor Rick Snyder.

Moore has been collecting signatures calling for the governor’s resignation and prosecution.

Moore says more than a million people have signed so far.

Many of those are expected to demonstrate outside of Governor Snyder’s Lansing office.

The protestors plan to display an ice sculpture dyed brown to resemble dirty water with the words “Snyder poisoned Flint.”

That demonstration will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday.

Moore is calling for an investigation and if warranted, prosecution against Snyder.

State Attorney General Bill Schuette’s* office is already investigating the state’s actions in the case.

Other protestors are calling on Mr. Snyder to find the funding to replace all the lead pipes in Flint.
