      National Day of Protest to Stop Demolition of

      New Orleans Public Housing



      Take Action in Your City






      Housing is a Human Right!


      Expose HUD and Bush Administration's Corruption!



      New Orleans' Public Housing and Right of Return
      Movement call on supporters around the city, country
      and world to demonstrate on Tuesday November 13 to
      show their opposition to the Bush administration's
      criminal plans to demolish 5,000 viable and badly
      public housing apartments. We oppose these plans not
      only because they are a clear violation of Human
      Rights but also for the corruption involved at every
      step. Her are a few CORRUPTION HIGHLIGHTS:



      * The FBI is now investigating HUD secretary Alphonso
      Jackson for awarding New Orleans public housing
      contracts to business friends. For example, Jackson
      arranged for his golfing buddy, William Harriston, to
      receive almost $500,000 for 'consulting' work for New
      Orleans Housing Authority after Katrina. Columbia
      Residential, an outfit with an ongoing business
      relationship with Jackson, was awarded a HUD contract
      to privatize Public Housing in New Orleans. See
      National Journal story at:

      http://news.nationaljournal.com/articles/071004nj2.htm
      <http://news.nationaljournal.com/articles/071004nj2.htm>





      * The Jackson-led HUD awarded New Orleans School Board
      member Una Anderson and her so-called 'Neighborhood
      Collaborative' a contract to 'redevelop' New Orleans
      C.J. Peete development. Anderson, who has led the
      privatization of local schools, is now under FBI
      investigation for her role in bribery scandal at the
      School Board.



      * Jimmie Thorns, a businessman and close friend of
      Judge Ivan LeMelle, the federal judge that approved
      demolition, recently received a sweetheart $500,000
      appraisal consulting contract from the HUD-controlled
      local housing authority.
