March on Washington, New Orleans style

Posted March 7th, 2006 by Sylvia S Tognetti and filed in Announcements

In a previous post, I said, “maybe we need a Mardi Gras parade through Congress or something.” Well, here it comes… Next Tuesday, March 14th at 2 pm, there will be a New Orleans style second line march from the Capitol to the White House led by the Rebirth Brass Band. Rally in Lafayette Park from 3pm till midnight. Besides being the Ides of March, March 14th is the eve of when those displaced by Katrina are scheduled to be evicted from hotels without any place to go. The Gulf Coast Renewal Campaign is calling for a halt to the evictions until transitional and long-term affordable housing is available and is campaigning for passage of the “Hurricane Reclamation, Recovery, Reconstruction and Relief Act” to provide more comprehensive assistance. to Katrina survivors and enable them to rebuild their communities.
