Important Info Via Jordan Flaherty

Sep 8, 2008 by

Friends and Allies,

New Orleans filmmaker Lily Keber and I recently completed our first work as correspondents for Democracy Now, with a special report we filmed in the hours before Gustav landed in Louisiana. The report features Saket Soni from the New Orleans Workers Center for Racial Justice, Bill Quigley from Loyola Law Clinic, Carol Kolinchak from Juvenile Justice Project of Louisiana, and many others. We tried to highlight some of the concerns people feel around both the evacuation, and the state of New Orleans three years after Katrina.

The report aired on Democracy Now on Tuesday.  Below are two links to the report, as posted on Youtube. The first was posted by Democracy Now and has higher resolution video, but the end is cut off.  The
second version was posted by us, and is lower-res, but the end is intact.  The third link is the link for the entire episode of Democracy Now that aired the report.
