NEW ORLEANS, LA/ 12 SEP 2020/ Socialists organize anti-FEMA protest in wake of Hurricane Laura.

SITREP: The Party for Socialism and Liberation organized roughly 12 people from roughly the same number of towns to demand FEMA act faster in the streets of New Orleans. Protesters are claiming FEMA isn’t releasing funding. FEMA has registered “more than 131,000 Louisiana survivors and put more than $73 million in the hands of residents — nearly $47 million for housing assistance and more than $26 million in other aid.”

RECOMMENDATION: Be advised revolutionary organizations and individuals will attempt to gain influence and authority within communities during times of strife in place of the national government.
