Photos and video of LSU Protest Rally

From Levees.org:

Levees.org’s rally protesting Louisiana State University’s decision to downsize the LSU Hurricane Center and fire its key personnel drew a large crowd of chanting sign-waving protesters.
The event also drew substantial local and national media.

The Associated Press which has dubbed Levees.org “an influential citizens group” reported on the Thursday morning rally at LSU Health Science Center on April 16.

Charles Delzell, president of the LSU chapter of the American Association of University Professors, said of Dr. Ivor van Heerdens dismissal, “It’s a clear case of retaliation for criticizing the Army Corps.”
