Saturday, Jan. 21 there's a "Rally on the Levee" at 11 a.m. in front of the US Army Corps of Engineers facility near the Lambeth House by Uptown Sqaure on River Road (actually the part of River Road occupied by the Corps is called Leake Ave. (I kid you not)). Levee.org, a nonpartisan group, is behind this one.
Come and continue your support for this very important issue. Adequate hurricane protection is a federal issue and will require an intelligent mixture of pumps, levees and coastal restoration. Hold Congress and the US Army Corps of Engineers accountable to this task.
Wear your life jackets and carry your signs.
