National Day of Protest to Stop Demolition of
New Orleans Public Housing
Take Action in Your City

Housing is a Human Right!
Expose HUD and Bush Administration’s Corruption!

New Orleans’ Public Housing and Right of Return Movement call on supporters around the city, country and world to demonstrate on Tuesday November 13 to show their opposition to the Bush administration’s criminal plans to demolish 5,000 viable and badly public housing apartments. We oppose these plans not only because they are a clear violation of Human Rights but also for the corruption involved at every step. Her are a few CORRUPTION HIGHLIGHTS:

· HUD secretary Alphonso Jackson is now under investigation by the FBI for awarding contracts to business friends. For example, Jackson arranged for his golfing buddy, William Harriston, to receive almost $500,000 for ‘consulting’ work for New Orleans Housing Authority after Katrina. Columbia Residential, an outfit with an ongoing business relationship with Jackson, was awarded a HUD contract to privatize public housing in New Orleans. See National Journal story at:

· Jackson’s HUD awarded New Orleans School Board member Una Anderson and her so-called ‘Neighborhood Collaborative’ a contract to ‘redevelop’ New Orleans C.J. Peete development. Anderson, who has led the privatization of local schools, is now under FBI investigation for her role in bribery scandal at the School Board.

· Jimmie Thorns, a businessman and close friend of Judge Ivan LeMelle, the federal judge that approved demolition, recently received a sweetheart $500,000 appraisal consulting contract from the local housing authority.
