Thursday, March 15, New Orleans More than 100 members, supporters, and coalition partners of the People's Hurricane Relief Fund (PHRF) and Tenants Rights Working Group (TRW) some as far away as Houston - including Critical Resistance, Survivors Village, the NAACP and other groups won a major concession from City Council on the question of price gouging and the lack of tenant rights in the city of New Orleans. In the face of mounting pressure from the more than 10,000 signatures gathered on the price gouging and tenants rights petition, demonstrations outside the home of Council Woman Stacy Head and other actions, an agreement was reached in principle that the City Council, through its Housing and Human Development Committee, would:

1) Develop policies to address the question of rent control in New Orleans.
2) Work with PHRF and the TRW on this Committee to craft the necessary policies.
3) Would challenge the State Legislature and Constitution to address the crisis of price gouging and lack of tenant rights protections.
