How Do We Save Public Housing? Public Works Now!

Jay Arena is a long time community and labor activists in New Orleans and New York, and the author of the recently released book, 

"Eight years after Hurricane Katrina the assault on New Orleans working-class communities continues—only now it is Barrack Obama, rather than George Bush, leading the charge. The demolition of the city’s last traditional public housing development is part of an accelerating privatization agenda across the country against not only public housing, but all public services serving the 99%. Only by getting out of our “silos” and uniting our movements to demand a mass, direct-government-employment public works program can we ever hope to not only save the remaining public services we have, but win the massive expansion of public housing and other jobs and services we so desperately need."
