All out for Thursday Mass meeting to respond to
capitalist court's Green light to demolition of
On Monday September 17th, federal judge Ivan "the
terrible" Lemelle, appointed by Bill "I demolished
100,00 units of Public Housing" Clinton, gave his seal
of approval to the Bush administration's criminal plan
to demolish thousands of units of viable public
housing apartments in New Orleans. This vile criminal
act, which is also supported by the Nagin
administration and city council, will prevent the
former, mostly African American working class Public
Housing families from returning to the city.
Furthermore demolition--the removal of thousands of
rent controlled apartments from the market-- will only
intensify the affordable housing crisis that all
working class people face.
On Thursday we will stand strong and not tolerate the
railroading of six African American youth in Jena.
Lets also stand strong in New Orleans against ethnic
and class cleansing; against the railroading of
thousands of African American, working class families
out of New Orleans.
