This is an urgent demand that our President and Congressmen get immediate aid, medical assistance and food to those that are stranded in New Orleans, Mississippi, and Alabama and the rest of the Gulf Coast suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The conditions on American soil are that usually seen in third world countries and this is unacceptable. We are also demanding that our President and Congressmen develop plans for the displaced citizens including; monetary aid, jobs, housing and security. We are demanding that this country treats its citizens that are facing turmoil and danger locally first before sending aid abroad. We are demanding that the President act quickly and decisively on this matter and that monies are placed to repair the wetlands and have the coastal restoration project approved to get the city of New Orleans back to living conditions and that plans are put into place to guard against future failures. We also demand that the President use this horrible example of extraction and order by FEMA, Homeland Security and other government agencies to work on effective plans of evacuation and support for this country\'s citizens in time of diaster. We are demanding that the American People\'s best interest be put first and not the interest of those overseas.
