Residents of Southwest Detroit discuss the Bucket Brigade, the power of the results and send their thanks to Global Community Monitor.  The residents of zip code 48217 have some of the worst air quality in the region.  Their neighborhoods are surrounded by heavy industry including an ever expanding oil refinery that has just started upgrading their facility in order to process heavy tarsands oil from Canada.  The Bucket Brigade has validated their health and safety concerns.  This has opened the discussion with the oil refinery and some residents are finally able to afford to move to a less polluted environment
