WTUL News reports from the New Lease on Life 23rd March at the Louisiana Superdome
by wtulnews
Friday Mar 25th, 2016 8:45 AM
We interviewed Cherri Foytlin of Idle No More Gulf Coast at the New Lease on Life rally and demonstration. Foytlin and 300 allies disrupted the announcements of lease sales in the Offshore Gulf of Mexico. Bids for leasing these public lands for drilling are at their lowest levels in decades, and the industry is drilling in deeper and deeper water without any new regulations from the BSEE.

Cherri spoke to us of her vision for just transition and her concerns of lacking a future for her children.

Also included are public performances from local performers Cry You One ("Sinking"), Hilton Kelly of Port Arthur, TX ("My Toxic Reality"), and Jose Torres Tama on the role of immigrant labor in the recovery of New Orleans.

it's time for a just transition

"put our oil workers back to work, cleaning up the mess that by law these oil companies need to clean up"

"louisiana can power this nation...we need to do it in a way that works with the systems of mother earth"

"where i live will be underwater, i'm paying for a property I will never be able to give to my children"

"tell the president of the united states that we are going to hold him accountable to what he said after Paris, we are going to keep 80% of fossil fuels under the ground"
