    by GRITtv

    The destruction of perfectly solid public housing in New Orleans has been a hotly contested issue since Hurricane Katrina destroyed so many homes five years ago. Sharon Jasper, who spent 57 of her 58 years in public housing in New Orleans, has been fighting for the rights of returnees to affordable housing, organizing protests and bringing pressure on authorities, and she joins us via Skype from New Orleans to give us her thoughts on the situation, five years after the storm.
