A Call to Action: Give Governors Jindal and Walker a 99 Percent Unwelcome to New Orleans Friday, August 17 4pm

Protest against Jindal, Walker, & Austerity: 4pm Friday, August 17th.

Meet on neutral ground at Tchoupitoulas & Andrew Higgins (2 blocks from Morial Convention Center in the CBD).


  • Louisiana opt in to federal Medicaid expansion.
  • Keep Southeast Hospital open.
  • Jindal and company restore recent funding cuts to higher education including UNO, SUNO, and Delgado budgets.
  • Jindal and company restore recent funding cuts to public education and public healthcare.
  • Jindal and company repeal the Louisiana Right to Work Law.
  • Walker keep hands off workers’ rights to organize

Bring signs, chants, megaphones, chalk, friends, Family, and most importantly yourself.

Wherever the 1% is plotting the plunder of Louisiana’s 99%, you can bet Governor Bobby Jindal is nearby!  So it should come as no surprise that Jindal will be pimping himself out to the super-rich at Friday’s $25,000 a plate fundraiser for the Louisiana GOP at Calcasieu Ball Room  in the Warehouse District of New Orleans. Governor Jindal is the chief architect of the 1 percent’s historically unprecedented plunder of public hospitals, public healthcare, and public education in Louisiana. This plunder, unfortunately, is still underway.  Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin is a natural match for sharing the stage with Jindal.  He is the nation’s best known gubernatorial union buster. Join us to voice your demands.
