NOLA Protest

Photos of protest today in NOLA. Here's the background info from WDSU.....

Four months after President George W. Bush stood in Jackson Square and vowed to rebuild New Orleans, protesters plan to jam the same square on Thursday during Bush's ninth visit and demand the government rebuild broken levees stronger than before.Organizers said protesters will wear life jackets, a symbol of their flooded-out homes and a statement on the current lack of flood and lifesaving protection.

They want CAT 5 protection. Presently the levees will be rebuilt or repaired to CAT 3 level.
