Isaac over at Parabasis has been posting a lot about this, and it's about time that I help spread the word. He writes:
Beginning next week, as a result of a process corrupt and inhumane, the Government will compound the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina with a man-made one. They will bulldoze 5,000 units of public housing in order to make way for luxury development. There are currently no plans to build replacement housing. The goal is to exile poor black residents from New Orleans (every single resident of the 5,000 units of housing is African American).
If you are sufficiently outraged, he lists five simple things you can do on his blog.
