On Dec. 10, volunteer relief worker Meg Perry, 26, from Portland, Maine, was killed in a bus accident in New Orleans. Meg was volunteering with Common Ground Relief in New Orleans, and had previously worked with S.O.S. - Saving Our Selves, in rural Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. The bus, a vegetable-oil powered 'community free space', was on its way from the People's Hurricane Relief Fund Conference in Jackson, Mississippi back to the march for human rights in New Orleans Saturday afternoon when the accident happened. Several of the other eight volunteers who were on the bus were injured.
