Anarchism, Violence, and Brandon Darby's Politics of Moral Certitude
In post-Katrina New Orleans, anarchist truths found fertile, if toxic grounds to take root and grow. New paths were walked on. Antiauthoritarian principles emerged as important guides for both reconstruction and the struggle against disaster capitalism. A million or more equally important stories can now be told about mutual aid, cooperation, subversion of authority, disruption of state and capitalist plans. And yet Brandon Darby's morality tale has become a media darling, due in no small part to his perfect and full adoption of his role as a state agent, regardless of whether it was official in 2006, or whether the FBI is still cutting him paychecks. We owe it to ourselves to tell these other stories of New Orleans, St. Paul and beyond. (image/jpeg + 10 comments)

text Developers and Officials Face Off Against Residents of Public Housing During Cong. Hearing Darwin BondGraham 2009-08-22 12:00 AM
A House Financial Services subcommittee wrapped up its second day of hearings in New Orleans today. The focus was on the state of public housing since Katrina. Billed as a field hearing on the status of the “Big Four” —the St. Bernard, Lafitte, CJ Peete and BW Cooper developments— the subcommittee, chaired by Maxine Waters (D-CA) took testimony from federal and local officials, fair housing advocates, residents of public housing, and representatives of the development corporations who have led demolition and rebuilding at the four sites.

Who's In GNOBEDD With LSU?
Major investors have created enormous economic and political pressures on LSU to build its $1.2 billion hospital in lower Mid-City <p> Casual observers might think that the pro-Charity vs. LSU teaching hospital conflict is an argument over two competing plans to bring health care back online in New Orleans. It is not. The difference between the two camps is in fact much more fundamental with the pro-Charity coalition valuing health as a human right versus LSU and its supporters valuing health care as a business anchor around which an industry can grow, land values can inflate, and hospitals can make money. No set of facts better illustrates this divide and fleshes out the LSU camp's motivations than the machinations of major real estate developers in Mid-City. In spite of the post-Katrina rise in mortality and morbidity rates —due to the local health care system's bedraggled state— LSU and its allies have stubbornly refused to entertain the notion of reopening Charity, favoring their economic development centered plans over what pro-Charity advocates define as an issue of the human right to medical care. <p> Into this conflict numerous journalists have intervened with facts and analysis. We (“A. Caritas” is a pen name for several researchers) reported in December about real estate acquisitions of several developers in and around lower Mid-City, questioning the for-profit motivations driving the LSU-VA project. New information about these developers and biotech boosters has compelled us to chime in again, especially in response to Times Picayune reporter Kate Moran's glowing profile of one Mid-City developer published in April.

text Why Sunland project is absolutely possible and why it has to be done? Dmitriy Kremnev. 2009-06-28 3:03 PM
Many people are constantly asking us: “How are you going to arrange proper living conditions and other facilities for the sunlanders? How are you going to organize Sunland’s economy?” Some people even express doubts in our fairness, while quite the contrary others reproach us in unrealism and keenness on empty fantasies. In this short article I shall try to prove that the Sunland project is a genuine project and more over its significance goes beyond the framework of an ordinary settlement in some obscure location.

Has Change Come to Post-Katrina New Orleans?:Bush, Obama, and the First 100 Days
As people in the U.S. and around the world make their evaluation of President Barack Obama’s first one-hundred days, many--that is, those that truly wanted a break from the racist, militarist, anti-working class policies of the Bush regime--are coming to the conclusion that the ‘change’ his campaign promised seems to have turned into ‘more of the same’.

text Comment On the Draft "Policy Recommendations to Support Gulf Coast Housing Recovery&q sam jackson and stephanie mingo 2009-02-22 2:14 AM
This article is a critique of a draft proposal by five progressive non-profits providing policy recommendations to the U.S. Congress concerning the promotion of affordable housing in the storm devastated areas of the Gulf Coast. This analysis is the collective work of New Orleans housing activists who have been fighting for affordable housing in the city since Katrina and longer. The main criticism of this analysis is that the proposal of the five non-profits, in general, represents a continuation of the failed private sector driven approach to rebuilding the Gulf Coast begun in 2005 under the direction of the Bush Administration.

text david vitter, public housing & crime mike howells 2007-10-21 11:24 PM
In a recent opt-ed piece for the Times-Picayune U.S. Senator David Vitter justified his arguement against the Gulf Coast Housing Recovery Act , in part, by asserting that it fuels violent crime. This article examines official statistics regarding public housing and violent crime in New Orleans to test the validity of Vitter's assertion that public housing breeds violent crime. This study reveals that the mass demolition of New Orleans public housing in the 1990s and 2000s has not helped alleviate the homicide problem in Louisiana's largest city. (text/plain + 1 comment)

image The US Government’s Usage of Atomic Bombs - Domestic - WTC Ed Ward, MD 2006-09-25 8:37 PM
The US Government’s Usage of Atomic Bombs - Domestic - WTC
The factual evidence indicates that our government is using and has used 3rd or possibly 4th generation hydrogen bombs domestically and internationally. The evidence for international usage is not quite as strong as the domestic usage, but when domestic usage is considered the international usage seems inescapable. The process of exclusion based on the known facts leaves only one viable option for the destruction of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings - a relatively pure hydrogen bomb.
