The government is scheduled to demolish thousands of UNDAMAGED units of public housing in New Orleans. The city is in the middle of an affordable housing crisis. Rents have skyrocketed and thousands are homeless. Meanwhile these undamaged apartments have remained unoccupied since the hurricane due to the city boarding them up, fencing them off and arresting trespassers who hold legal leases.
These properties are slated to begin demolition on or after December 15th. Press Conference 9AM \ MONDAY December 10th \ City Hall History Lessons and Direct Action Training to follow the press conference.
