The Emergence Broadcasting System (EBS), is going to New Orleans.

Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) has been informing New Orleans residents that they must leave their city in order to receive food and supplies when such resources are being made presently available by grass roots organizations in the New Orleans area. In addition to food and other supplies, hundreds of individuals, organizations, and private businesses are offering free lodging to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

EBS needs your help to break the monopoly of misinformation being fed to those in FEMA occupied New Orleans. In order that residents receive proper information as to resource distribution, EBS will be bringing wireless communications to people in and around New Orleans, setting up mobile info-points where they can access internet, e-mail and make phone calls to friends and family. For example, there are currently thousands of people offering mutual aid on Craig’s list and other internet sites, while the people that most need of such mutual aid are unaware and have no access. EBS will reach those people who have been misinformed and neglected by the “official channels” of communication and connect them with the thousands of people around the country willing and able to provide real support.
