EYEWITNESS NEW ORLEANS WITH MALIK RAHIM & OTHERS
Malik Rahim, a longtime community activist in New Orleans (and San Francisco), will talk about the situation in New Orleans today in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the disastrous response by the Bush administration and other government agencies. Malik, who lives in the Algiers section of New Orleans, will discuss the grassroots community relief and rebuilding efforts underway through the Common Ground Relief organization.
Other participants in the program will include Maurice Campbell, Community First Coalition; Gloria La Riva and Bill Hackwell of ANSWER who traveled to New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Houston in the days following the disaster.
A new 14-minutes video, “Heroes Not Looters: Eyewitness New Orleans and Houston,” will be shown.
Donation of $3-5 requested. No one turned away for lack of funds.
This event will be a fundraiser for Common Ground Relief in New Orleans.
