Camp Casey Covington
Camp Casey Covington
I know I sound like a loon, (NO COMMENTS PLEASE) but between Camp Casey II in Crawford, the hurricane, and the interference of the federal government your humble out of the frying pan into the fire activist has finally launched upon a solution.
Covington is just North of the Lake in New Orleans. It is a small community with a population of about 8,500 people that has been forgotten by the media hype and photo op moments by the Bush Administration.
I received this email about 2 hours ago.
My friends are renting a truck and filling it with the goods...I and my trusty companion Puppies for Peace President Lokken will be driving down in the morning.
For Immediate Release: Sept. 2, 2005
Where did the food go? What about the Medical supplies? How about all the water that was never sucked up in the 109 degree heat of Camp Casey? It got loaded up by the team and members of the Veterans For Peace Chapter 116,Mendocino County, www.vfproadtrips.org and hauled out with Annie and BuddySpell of the Louisiana Activist Network, Commanding the way to as close as Camp Casey could get to the catastrophe in Louisiana. Albert signed on the tour in Austin and we we were joined by Alex and Ella of Minnesota who spent a lot of time at Camp Casey the past month.
