Los Angeles, CA – On Sunday, November 26th, from 4 to 6 PM at SAJE 152 W 32nd st, Los Angeles, CA, nationally and internationally renowned hip hop artist Talib Kweli will be taking time out from his latest tour to voice his solidarity with displaced and returning hurricane survivors of the Gulf Coast. Kweli and the local groups and activists have organized the event to stand in solidarity with the People's Hurricane Relief Fund and Oversight Coalition (PHRF/OC), Survivors for Survivors Inc, and the International Tribunal on Katrina.
Louisiana’s displaced Hurricane survivors are still dispersed to the four
corners of America. They need to get home, to rebuild their lives, families and
But Louisiana Govenor Kathleen Blanco has hijacked over 10 billions federal
dollars, appropriated by Congress to assist displaced people and to reconstruct New Orleans and other areas damaged by Hurricane Katrina and Rita.
To control our money, Blanco created a new body, accountable only to her, called the Louisiana Recovery Authority (LRA). It is wholly unrepresentative of the state;s population in both its racial and class composition. The LRA is a who’s who of Louisiana’s rich and powerful. The LRA represents the interests of millionaire developers, intent on preventing the return to New Orleans of its
Black working class majority and turning it into the Las Vegas of the South.
Governor Blanco and the LRA are offering nothing to renters, the vast majority
of those displaced. Their “Road Home” program is focused exclusively on
homeowners. Under the LRA renters get nothing to make them whole or reimburse them for their losses. This is a gross injustice!
Yet, the LRA program offers homeowners very little. The Road Home Program advertises that homeowners are eligible for up to 150,000 to repair their homes. But the size of grants is based on the pre-Katrina property value-minus what has already been received from insurance, minus any FEMA grants, minus penalties for not having flood insurance and minus penalties for moving out of state if the homeowner sells the property. This equation leaves homeowners with barely enough funds to rebuild a room in their former houses, especially given today’s inflated construction costs.
Blanco and her LRA must not be allowed to get away with this plan for ethnic
cleansing, theft of federal disaster relief funds and land grabbing! Speak out!
