Hurricane Katrina Mutual Aid Relief

September 4, 2005

Want to help out the people affected by Hurricane Katrina? Are you interested in supporting grassroots efforts to help people, instead of religious or corporate charities like the Starvation Army and the Red Cross? There is a growing number of grassroots efforts around the country which are providing direct aid and assistance to folks affected by the hurricane and the conditions of capitalism and racism that existed prior to the hurricane's arrival on the Gulf Coast.

Mayday DC, Infoshop News and other activists are teaming up to send one such caravan to the affected areas. Our goal is to put crucial resources such as water filters and vitamins into the hands of people affected by the storm. We are sending one of our volunteers, Jamie "Bork" Loughner, along with several street medics, down to the Gulf Coast with a truck full of food, supplies and information. She is currently planning the logistics of the trip and plans to leave Washington, DC on Labor Day. She also will be doing reporting for Infoshop News and Indymedia. If you'd like to help provide mutual aid to residents of the Gulf Coast affected by Hurricane Katrina, please consider helping out with this project.

If you'd like to contribute money to this effort, please donate via one of the following methods:

1) Directly to Bork (jamieandjoe@mutualaid.org) via PayPal.
2) Via Infoshop.org (Look for the donate button at http://news.infoshop.org/)
3) Check or money order, made out to "Alternative Media Project", sent to AMP, PO Box 7171, Shawnee Mission, KS 66207. Please note on the check that your donation is for "Hurricane Katrina Relief."

Mayday DC is collecting supplies in Asheville, North Carolina [things can be sent there]. Materials need to arrive in Asheville by Saturday, September 10. Preferred items: Water filters, B & C vitamins, socks, underwear, beans and rice in 20lb bags, and nutritional yeast.
