Stop the Illegal Dumping in New Orleans East!

The Vietnamese community in New Orleans East is leading the fight against the landfill which Mayor Nagin approved by sideswiping law that demanded community hearings before a landfill could be built. On May 10th, members of the Versaille Community and the Mary Queen of Vietnam Church, together with the Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy civil rights organization, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and the Louisiana Environmental Action Network, went to City Hall and demanded that Mayor Nagin hear their protest.

The result of this protest was a 3 day moratorium was put on the dumping until, Mayor Nagin said, he could "prove... to them it is safe".

See the video tour of the Bayou Sauvage and the Chef Menteur Landfill site with Father Dung Nguyen and feel for yourself the unique and interconnected landscape that is threatened by the city of New Orleans's illegal dumping.

More information about the Landfill is published courtesey of Citizens for a Strong New Orleans East at FACTS ABOUT THE LANDFILL
