NO RETURN: New Orleans' Poor Not Welcome (Indy)

BILL QUIGLEY |
When those in power close the public schools, close public housing, fire people from their jobs, refuse to provide access to affordable public health care, and close off all avenues for justice, it is not necessary to erect a sign outside of New Orleans saying “Poor People Not Allowed To Return.” People cannot come back in these circumstances and that is exactly what is happening. more...  0 Comments

FEMA FLUBS INDIAN POINT PLAN: Fed's Nuked Disaster Plan: More Toll Booth Operators on I-87 (Indy)

ALEX MATTHIESSEN | Before 9/11, the agency identified a terrorist attack on New York and a hurricane in New Orleans as two of the most likely disasters that could befall our nation. Any credible list of possible terrorist targets in New York would include Indian Point, which, as the 9/11 Commission Report revealed, may have been on the original hit list for the 2001 attacks.
