Katrina Survivors to Rally in Washington, D.C.
Isn't it time we all converge on DC and let our 'leaders' know how we feel about them running our once great nation into the ground?!

Cindy Sheehan on January 31 for the State of the Union, World Can't Wait on Feb 4 and now Katrina Survivors on the 9th.

We are going to Washington to let the world people know how the U.S. government has turned their back on us the ordinary people of New Orleans who have worked hard all our lives, said Dorothy Stukes, spokesperson for the ACORN Katrina Survivors Association. Every Katrina survivor: get on board and lets fight for the help we need, and deserve, to return and rebuild our homes and communities.

Buses to the rally will depart from Baton Rouge, New Orleans, San Antonio, Little Rock, and other cities housing displaced survivors, arriving in Washington late in the day on February 8th. The rally and other events will take place on February 9th and will be co-sponsored by a variety of labor, faith and community allies.

Any Katrina survivor can take part in the trip for $50; other fundraisers are being planned to help cover the remaining costs. Anyone who wishes to participate should call the ACORN Hurricane Hotline at 1-800-790-2290, email katrinarelief@acorn.org or contact their local ACORN office. Visit www.acorn.org for more information.

1. I'm not sure which is better
Three protests in less than a month or one huge protest involving all the three parties.
