MEETING TO STOP JINDAL’S ATTACK ON PUBLIC HEALTHCARE & OTHER HUMAN RIGHTS.

The recent decision by the Jindal Administration to cut state funding for hospice care for the poor in the name of balancing the budget is the latest brutal reminder that the Governor of Louisiana and his well heeled supporters are waging a no holds barred war on human rights in the Pelican State. To be silent in the face of atrocities masquerading as budget cuts is unacceptable to people with a basic sense of human decency. What’s more is Jindal can be stopped from perpetrating ever greater crimes against humanity. But it’s also true that Jindal no longer has to factor concerns about being reelected into his political game plan. What Jindal is vulnerable to is mass resistance from below that demands he stops his war on the human rights of the 99 percent of Louisiana. And it is also true that a mass protest on the State Capitol and Jindal’s mansion before the State Legislature reconvenes this Spring is doable and desirable from the perspective of the needs and wants of the great majority of people in Louisiana.
