Katrina Volunteers depart to Lebanon

A number of Katrina volunteers who organized the Common Ground collective have organized into a new organization named “Critical Response” in order to provide emergency response to disasters, both natural and human-made. Critical Response is working to send a rescue and relief team into Southern Lebanon to assist with humanitarian aid efforts. The Critical Response team will go into areas that are not currently being served adequately by relief organizations due to the high risks involved. As was the case in New Orleans, innocent civilians in Southern Lebanon are being sentenced to death through delayed relief efforts. Critical Response is asking for ideas and help by networking from people of conscience. Critical Response | Common Ground Collective | Indymedia Global coverage of crisis: 1, 2, 3, 4
