GreenARMY Plans "Louisiana Water Festival" ~Jeremy Alford, LaPolitics
~Russel Honoré, the retired Army lieutenant general turned activist, said he’s working to get 10,000 people to show up at the State Capitol on March 8, two days before the regular session kicks off. The gathering is being called “The Louisiana Water Festival” and will help preview the package of environmental justice bills Honoré and his so-called “Green Army” will be pushing during the session. “We’re going through the application process now to use the grounds,” he said. “But this is not about disobedience. This is about celebration and information. Water is the strength of our state and without clean, fresh water the whole of Louisiana becomes a different state and different culture. We’ve never had a problem with water, but now it’s at an emergency status in some places.”
