Topic: The federal government is demolishing public housing units—ones that were not severely damaged in Hurricane Katrina and could be repaired—despite high rates of homelessness in New Orleans.  This week in New Orleans and around the country people are holding events to draw attention to the situation.  We talk with a group of former New Orleans relief workers who engaged in civil disobedience at the Bangor Maine HUD office this week, and speak by phone with a New Orleans resident working on this issue.
