One Week On, Suffering from Hurricane Ida is Ongoing

Southern Louisiana got hit hard by Hurricane Ida, with hundreds of thousands of people still without power, and flood damage and wreckage widespread. Community organizations continue to be the primary source of aid for most people, rather than any local, state, or federal services. Meanwhile, there are clear ways of limiting the horrendous impact of these massive storms, but they consistently go underfunded. Charlotte Clarke, Executive Director of Common Ground Relief & environmental activist, gives us an on-the-ground look at both the problems and the solutions. » Become a patron: -------------------------------- » Like us on Facebook: » Tweet us on Twitter: » Follow us on Instagram: At Breakthrough News we believe in the power of independent media. Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. They control the news cycle, to which social media and even most “alternative” media is forced to respond. We are breaking through that cycle. We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time. People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through. We can be that media arm, but only with your help. Become a Patron and join us on the front lines in the battle of ideas.
