Race, Class, and Power:
Drawing Lessons From New Orleans Post-Katrina Public Housing Movement
A Pot Luck Supper and Roundtable Discussion
Thursday, June 5
410 Basin St.
St Jude Hall
New Orleans public housing movement over the last two-and-half years has involved courageous and determined resistance from many people in the community, and solidarity from our brothers and sisters across the country and world. Major gains of the movement, despite the ongoing demolition, include the reopening of some apartments, the introduction of still pending legislation in Congress to guarantee one-for-one replacement, international condemnation of the Bush, Nagin, and City Council crimes, and the forging of a new generation of working class activists. Yet, the most important contribution of the movement is still to be realized: the lessons to draw from this movement for improving our future struggles for a world with real justice and without capitalism, racism, sexism, and imperialism. Come to the June 5th pot-luck supper to share and listen to the ideas of your fellow sisters and brothers struggling for justice.
