World Can't Wait | Hurricane Katrina not only exposed the link between race and class in this county, it also alerted the world to the lengths that this regime will go to implement their program. The statement marking one year after Katrina on the World Can't Wait website sums it up clearly: This is not government ineptitude, it is the beginning of genocide, colored with racism and excused by religion.

reZz | Critical Mass in Manhattan on August 25th kicked off much like similar rides in Paris, Japan, San Francisco or Brooklyn. About 150 cyclists gathered in Union Square to the tune of marching band music, uniformed dancers and a speech marking the anniversary of hurricane Katrina. About five minutes into the ride, it seemed to be more of a memorial to the first amendment right to free assembly.
