Several people occupied St. Augustine Catholic Church in the Treme area of New Orleans, for nearly 2 weeks to draw attention to the unjust treatment this Parrish received from the archdiocese in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
This church is historic; this occupation will be history some day.
In front of the activist occupied Historic St Augustine Church, a key stop on the underground railroad and home of the tomb of the unknown slave.
Activists occupied the church long enough to bring national media exposure to the injustice being done to the Treme community. Their church was not damaged in the hurricane but the Catholic Church wanted to close it anyway... more about that here

Take a step back in time at the B. W. Cooper Housing Projects with Malik Rahim cofounder of the Common Ground Collective hurricane relief organization and former Black Panther. B.W. Cooper Projects are slated for destruction while much of the cities returned citizens are sleeping in cars or tents .. or outlying areas. Thousands of people could be living there right now yet the city will not allow them to reopen.
