New Orleans Elections Scheduled for Earth Day

It is being reported by BlackAmericaWeb that civil rights leaders and organizations oppose the New Orleans election being scheduled on April 22 because not enough people (black) have moved back to the city. BlackAmericaWeb reports that a demonstration is scheduled for April 1 in New Orleans that has been endorsed by Rev. Jesse Jackson, president of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition; Rev. Al Sharpton; Bruce Gordon, president of the NAACP; Marc Morial, president of the National Urban League, and the Congressional Black Caucus. Wonder how the mainstream environmental movement feels about this.
