From The American Prospect:

Yesterday, Gulf coast residents and advocates gathered in front of the Federal Emergency Management Agency building to protest eviction notices delivered to over 5,000 families still living in trailers some four years after Hurricane Katrina. The press conference speakers — a diverse bunch that included representatives from faith-based groups, conservative groups, student organizations and ACORN — called on Barack Obama to honor his campaign pledge to restore the storm-ravaged Gulf Coast.

“We want to see you step up to the plate,” said Judith Browne-Dianis, co-director of the Advancement Project, a D.C.-based non-profit “action tank” for social justice. The evictions are happening “on your watch. You need to develop a plan for permanent housing,” for those displaced by the storms, said Browne-Dianis.

FEMA began delivering eviction notices in May. As of yesterday, anyone who still remained in the trailers may have to deal with the Department of Justice. Problem is, as Derrick Evans of the Turkey Creek Community Initiatives, stated, “Families are still living in FEMA trailers because they have no where to go.”
