This is part 3 of 4 in this interview series.

Poisoned Well Water In Ha Tinh Province, Vietnam 

In this interview we hear about the poisoned ground water in the area of the Formosa Chemical Company.  The Interview took place in 2016.  A man is being interviewed and there is another interview with a family effected talking about the poisoning of the ground water not so far from the site of the Formosa Chemical Plant along with another man talking about his water source being poisoned.  He explains that the water from his well became muddy one month after the chemical spill.  He said that he has used this well for 25 years and there was never a problem with the water before.  The family explains that the water has a dark film on it and this never happened before.  The two main themes of this interview is that there have been no government or company officials out to test the water and that the citizens in the area need some help to purchase water filters but no help has been forthcoming in this emergency. In the last interview in this video we meet a man who has lost his income from fishing and cannot afford to buy a filter for his well.  It is pretty clear that after listening to this video that there is a total lack of support from both the government and the Formosa Chemical Company of China.

You do like telling the truth in how it is Mike, not how people would prefer and desire it to be told. You are like me, your not on the net to make friends but tell it how it is.

To some people, this is plainly negative so they ignore it, to others it's too much of the truth so they ignore it. You also have those who accept the truth but ignore the truth because they feel they are unable to do anything about it.

I wonder, what percentage of people are left who don't ignore the truth like this?

You are a good bloke Mike.......

Yes, Mat. Truth or honesty is essential to have a healthy, balanced life. Those who yearn for truth will hear it. I speak for them.
Percents, I cannot say and don’t think it even matters. Those whom will hear, will hear and those who can feel and act upon the knowledge will benefit.

Kindest & warmest regards,
Mike
