Homeless Profiteering
http://www.lyingmediabastards.com:80/2007/12/homeless-profiteering

Disgusting. The city of New Orleans is demolishing 4500 units of public =
housing when there are thousands desperate for a place to live. Some =
activists have managed to stall the bulldozers by chaining themselves to =
the building. And today, when the New Orleans city council was to have a =
meeting where they would vote on additional public housing demolitions, =
the public was physically locked out of the meeting. Then, the police =
tasered and pepper-sprayed the people trying to get into the meeting.

I haven't researched these events much, but it seems mighty likely that =
these demolished homes will be rebuilt upon by developers who will make =
quite a bit of money. That's why thousands of families will have to live =
on the streets.

Lot of reports, breaking news, photos and videos at New Orleans =
Indymedia and the People's Hurricane Relief Fund.=20
