DISASTER APARTHEID ON THE BAYOU: HOMELESS? DISPLACED SINCE KATRINA? JUST GIVE IT ANOTHER 2 YEARS. YA'LL DON'T COME BACK NOW, YA HEAR?



An update on the New Orleans Public Housing Demoltions issue from Bill Quigley at Quigley@loyno.edu


Tracie Washington and I had a brief meeting with Council members Clarkson and Fielkow asking that they: create a process for resident consultation; do a 60 day moratorium; create a blue ribbon board of trusted citizens to nail down the facts and make recommendations; and guarantee one for one replacement.

They were polite and clear and firm.

There will be a vote on Thursday 20th.

There will be no moratorium.

The council will approve demolition on all developments.



We asked. They answered. Be prepared.
