Levees.org's Day of Action

by R. Reese Fuller

Yesterday, the New Orleans group Levees.org released two new public service announcements in hopes of spurring an independent investigation by the U.S. Congress into the city's levee failures after Hurricane Katrina. One of the videos features a Lower 9th Ward resident who has rebuilt her home in area still devoid of homes. The other PSA is an eery montage of photos of a Chalmette home before and after Katrina. Both the PSAs, in addition to other videos produced by the group, can be viewed at levees.tv.

The group has declared tomorrow, Saturday, May 31 a Day of Action. On the eve of this year's hurricane season, the group plans to rally at three locations across New Orleans in support of a "8/29 Investigation."
