Protesters demanding Governor Rick Snyder step down over the Flint water crisis rallied in downtown Ann Arbor Monday night, outside the governor’s home.

Despite the cold, University of Michigan student Noor Ahmad marched with about 80 others.

She says they've got to march here, because people in Flint are being poisoned by the water in their homes.

"He should realize that, in the security of his own home, other people that, because of him, do not have the security of clean and safe water, that we in Ann Arbor are privileged to have."

Mariah Brito, a student at Eastern Michigan University, carried a sign reading “Arrest Snyder.”

"Children are going to suffer from this for the rest of their lives,” says Brito. “That's criminal."

Governor Snyder is apologizing for the state's role in the water crisis. He says he'll cooperate with "all authorities investigating the crisis."
