Katrina Refugees Must Demand Right of Return Now!
And it shall be said that "While New Orleans drowned, Bush fished."
Even as the first wave of horror emerged from New Orleans, I couldn't help myself thinking that the rebuilt city would be either a Disney park or a new Las Vegas. And recent comments from Bush and co. have not given me much hope that this won't eventually occur. Of course, Condi had not yet stopped shopping, before the Bechtels and Haliburtons started salivating over the now de-blacked city.The Wall Street Journal reported that Rep. Richard H. Baker, a 10-term Republican from Baton Rouge was overheard telling lobbyists: "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."
So, it extremely important that we demand the right of return for the victims of Katrina.
Don't let New Orleans become Disneyland.
