Demolition of State Building Could End Homeless Encampment at Duncan Plaza: Support Homeless Pride!

Please check out Homeless Pride, an organization of homeless folks with political demands who reside in or near Duncan Plaza across from New Orleans’ City Hall. I’ve been meaning to write about this organization for some time and plan to get back in touch with them. However, the state is planning to evict all the homeless from Duncan Plaza park in order to demolish a vacant building on the North-side of the park. Homeless advocate organizations, like UNITY of Greater New Orleans, have tried to petition the state to hold off the demolition and fencing off of the park for two additional weeks to provide time to find shelter for the nearly 250 people in the area.

Also, on a video journalism site called Defend New Orleans, check out the segment by a seemingly concerned citizen journalist discreetly named Miss Pussycat.
