16. We had people ready to roll on the Katrina forun, got our ten requesters,
made the request several times going through all the hoops. Then we waited and waited and waited...NADA. The only peep back was from one of the mods who told us to wait some more.
Katrina and all of the neocon policies that turned a natural disaster into an unimmaginable catastrophe, represents THE biggest betrayal of America and Americans ever. I find it incredible that the premire democratic forum actually blocked the efforts to mobilize around this issue. Much valuable time and momentum were lost.
I have been afraid of speaking out about this for fear about being tombstoned..and if that is what happens, so be it. But we who made the request and the many others who have contacted me asking when it was going to happen deserve answers, and we need a forum to deal with the multitude of issues arising from Katrina. Since the DU administration has not even dignified our request with a responce, I have begun collecting and categorizing articles myself. I do not yet know how the information will be displayed, but it is critical that it get out there and I am determined to find a way.
If you want to work on a Katrina project, please let me know...
You can respond to this post or PM me.
