JOIN THE KATRINA SURVIVORS’ REBUKE OF PRESIDENT BUSH
2:00 PM THURSDAY MARCH 1
SAMUEL GREEN SCHOOL
2319 VALENCE ST.
(Near Freret and Napoleon)
NEW ORLEANS
New Orleans Needs Federal Aid, Not Presidential Photo-Ops.
Mr. President: Katrina Survivors Do Not Welcome You, We Rebuke You!

We live in a devastated city and you are a big part of the reason why it sill sits in ruins. Your administration has abandoned our children by savaging their public schools. Your administration has tortured our working class people by refusing to reopen the city’s public housing developments. And your administration is fully complicit in placing our uninsured in harms way by ruthlessly pursuing the privatization of local public healthcare in the aftermath of Katrina. And, finally your administration is guilty of sending our sons and daughters of to war for oil and empire just when we need them most to help us rebuild our community.

Mr. President, we, Katrina Survivors all, do not welcome you to our city, we rebuke you!

Sponsored by Survivors Village, United Front For Affordable Housing.

I say Hell YEAH!
I am outraged by the horrors done to the people of New Orleans, specifically (Iraqis too, but I try to not digress). New Orleans is a city with character and history that is truly symbolic of the real United States of America. A melting pot, where the best of all worlds has been blended to create a truly unique city. I will observe from afar, alas… because the mold in New Orleans petrifies me. I have mold allergies, and serious breathing issues, whenever I’m around it for more than a couple of hours.

    Thanks for spreading the word! Our woes were caused by the failure of the federally built levee system rather thatn the storm itself, so holding them responsible is paramount. Bush said a lot in Jackson Square (none of which came to pass), but when he finished the generators were removed and the Quarter was plunged back into darkness. Par for the course…
