The response to our request to \"Flood Washington\" has been fantastic. We\'ve generated over 37,000 comments, sending a strong message to Washington and the White House. But we\'ve got a great opportunity to remind President Bush of his promise to \'do whatever it takes\' to make New Orleans and South Louisiana rise again. The President will be in New Orleans tomorrow - and we\'re asking people to come out to a NO POLITICS rally demanding category 5 protection for New Orleans NOW. We still need an immediate committment to honest and effective levees and comprehensive coastal restoration if New Orleans is to rise again. Partisanship aside, please come out to Jackson Square tomorrow, Thursday January 12 at 10 am, and show your support for this message. We\'re asking people to bring signs reading \"Category 5 Levees AND Coastal Restoration NOW\" or \"Party Affiliation: Louisianian.\" No pro-Bush, no anti-Bush; no pro-war, no anti-war. Wear your life vests and hip-waders; let\'s have fun while sending a clear, simple message: we need effective levees AND a revitalized coast to protect New Orleans. Let us know if you will be coming and how many friends you can bring. Send an e-mail to If you can\'t attend, but want to help send the message, take a moment to urge five friends to send a message to the White House and Congress. Use this link to ask your friends to help. This rally was originated by \"Stop the Flooding,\" a new nonpartisan grassroots coalition of Louisiana residents for Category 5 levees AND coastal restoration. You are recieving this e-mail from the Gulf Restoration Network, a New Orleans-based network of groups and individuals dedicated to protecting and restoring the valuable resources of the Gulf of Mexico. The GRN has members in the five Gulf States of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Throughout our ten-year history, the GRN has worked on many issues that have now been thrust into the spotlight by Katrina: coastal wetlands protection and restoration; the prioritization and effectiveness of Army Corps of Engineers projects, such as the New Orleans levees; and clean and healthful waters. The GRN, working closely with member organizations the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, the Louisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN) and the Delta Chapter of the Sierra Club, has spearheaded this Flood Washington effort to ensure a sustainable rebuilding effort on the Gulf Coast. **Visit our website at**
