Katrina Survivors: Don't Abandon Us


VIDEO SPECIAL | Katrina Survivors: Don't Abandon Us
A Film by Chris Hume
On Tuesday, March 14th, Katrina survivors converged on Washington to protest FEMA's eviction of those displaced by Katrina from their motel rooms. Chris Hume spoke to people affected by the policy. This time there has been no extension or court order extending the program. People once displaced by Katrina are now being displaced by our government.


I've been alerted to an activist blog self-described as:
A site dedicated to getting the state to move from tents back home to provide real healthcare to the stuggling people of New Orleans after Katrina. The taxpayor owned Charity Hospital is in New Orleans, Louisiana and the Governor is our employee. As employers we say open the hospital. Call Governor Blanco tell her to end the suffering and save some lives open the hospital, she has the power.

Rally tomorrow at Charity Hospital 2pm to save the hospital bringing back medical care for the poor, quality medical educational resources, and jobs. Please come share your support for a hospital that while not perfect did save thousands of lives over the years. Bloggers please link to
