Hurricane Katrina as America's Nakba: does anyone care?
Our September issue featured the story "Big Oil & the Big Easy: Catastrophe and Counterinsurgency in New Orleans" by Frank Morales of The Shadow, outlining military "anti-terrorism" measures to protect Gulf Coast oil infrastructure and arguing that "the federal response to Katrina represents an escalation of the tactics of domestic counter-insurgency." We also featured the story "New Orleans Public Housing Defenders Face Terror Charges" by Bill Weinberg from AlterNet, on the use of "anti-terrorism" laws against activists engaged in nonviolent civil disobedience to protest the demolition of public housing projects. Our September Exit Poll was: "Why is there no international movement to demand right of return for New Orleans refugees?" We received no responses.
We don't produce World War 4 Report for our health. All we ask of our readers is that you either send a token monetary donation once a year, or else show that you are reading and thinking about the journalism we produce by replying to the Exit Poll. So, for all of you who failed to either reply this month or send a donation yet this year—we assume the check is in the mail.
