emergency caravan to louisiana and mississippi

Direct Action to Aid Victims of Hurricane Katrina Now!
Pastors for Peace Organizes Aid Caravan for Louisiana and Mississippi

If you can organize a collection drop off point call: John Waller (718) 810-8426
For donations and other information: IFCO/Pastors voicemail (212) 926-5757
Or email: P4P@igc.org

Pastors for Peace has moved quickly to mobilize a Gulf Coast caravan. We are collecting tons of bottled water, powdered milk, diapers, food and personal hygiene items for southern Louisiana and Mississippi. The aid will be delivered to local community and church groups who are feeding and caring for their neighbors.

We cannot simply stand by and not act in the face of this monstrous disaster. The incompetence and callousness of government officials is unspeakable. We are moved to direct action because the racism and inaction of those who should be caring for ALL the people victimized by Hurricane Katrina have not done so.

The aid is being collected at drop off centers in ten states in the Northeast and Midwest and South. What we need now are volunteers to organize drop off points in those areas. The caravan convoy, made up of busses, box trucks and other vehicles will take a limited number of volunteers in order to maximize space for humanitarian aid.

Urgently needed financial donations for those who want to contribute funds and to offset the fuel costs of this caravan, can be sent to IFCO/Pastors for Peace. 402 W. 145th St. New York, NY 10031. Those wishing to make credit card donations can call IFCO Pastors communications director Lucia Bruno at (347) 423-4330.

Speaking with supporters this week, Rev. Lucius Walker, executive Director of IFCO/Pastors for Peace said "Despite the urgent campaign to free the seized computers bound for disabled Cuban children we must respond to the needs of families hurt by Hurricane Katrina right now".

For more than two decades, Pastors for Peace has delivered humanitarian aid to families in Chiapas, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Cuba. These Friendshipment Caravans have focused on aiding victims of US foreign policy. Today, we extend this work to the domestic frontier. Families on the Gulf coast have been victimized twice over -- by Hurricane Katrina and again by the callous disregard of a system that was responsible for protecting them and did not.

We must do our part to demonstrate the love and concern that exists in communities throughout the US for our brothers and sisters torn apart by this tragedy.

Well I just got back from the gym and I am beat. I am currently doing some research on card credit hsbc and stumbled across your blog. Which cracks me up really. The internet can certainly land you off base sometimes. Even though your blog is not completely related I think it is a cool blog. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some very good points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at card credit hsbc. If you have the energy swing by http://www.credit-card-workshop.com. I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Great job!
