Protesters will be dogging Michigan Governor Rick Snyder for the next few days. 

There’s a growing chorus of people calling for Michigan’s governor to resign over his handling of Flint’s water crisis.

Saturday afternoon, dozens of people gathered on the front lawn of Flint city hall chanting “Snyder’s gotta go.” Many carried signs calling for Governor Snyder to either resign or be arrested.

More protests are scheduled for today in the governor’s home town of Ann Arbor and Tuesday in Lansing, across the street from the capitol building where the governor will deliver his State of the State address. 

Snyder has apologized several times for mistakes made by the state that contributed to Flint’s drinking water becoming contaminated with lead.
