Creativity, Solidarity and Mutual Aid in Algiers, New Orleans
by ~Bradley Tuesday, Sep. 13, 2005 at 2:06 PM (email address validated)

On September 12, Vinny, Blank and I arrived in New Orleans. We are staying in the Algiers neighborhood. Community members and volunteers from coast to coast and Europe, are providing people in New Orleans with food, medical aid and health supplies.

Creativity, Solidari...

As we drove into New Orleans, we saw many buildings and trees that have been destroyed as a result of Hurricane Katrina. Driving in New Orleans is pretty strange these days. Many of the street signs are laying on the side of the road. However, the photos I am publishing here are trying to tell a different story. They are not focused on the destruction caused by Katrina, racism and classism, rather they provide a small glance at the creativity, solidarity and mutual aid happening here in Algiers.

If you can make it out to Texas, Mississippi or Louisiana, your help is definitely needed.

Also, if you can donate money to support independent media for survivors of Hurricane Katrina, that would be very helpful as well.

Vinny and I have put out a request for donations. Please read the following article for information on one important way that you can help out. thanks.

That transmitter looks awesome. Love the case!
It's not surprizing to see a FRSC shirt with it.

Tanks for the pictures.
Hang in there.

Katrina Revisionists at Jawa Report
by Bleagh Wednesday, Oct. 05, 2005 at 5:02 AM

They're saying Nagin is to blame:

"Was there flooding? Of course, pictures don't lie. Here is a picture of a flooded downtown, but that's one of a hundred or more. Others in the vicinity show some neighborhoods flooded, and others on the same street with almost no damage

Pictures do do tell a distorted view of reality. Geraldo Rivera on a deserted street is not headline news. Geraldo Rivera floating down a street is. So, if you're a producer you find the areas of worst damage and then show those pictures. You don't show images of the other 75% of the city that wasn't damaged near as much.

And while most of the city was busy getting out, reporters were camped out broadcasting the worst images and the people in the worst conditions and acting as if it was a typical experience.

So, is Roy Nagin to blame as we earlier asserted? Yes, a little. Maybe even more than most. As I said before, New Orleans might be the worst run city in the worst run state of the Union. But, regardless of its lack of leadership it seems that somebody thought to get those busses moving. Perhaps the reason we didn't hear massive complaints coming from this neighborhood is that they got out, on busses."
