Democracy Now! | Nightmarish Scenes at New Orleans Convention Center

AMY GOODMAN: We turn now to New Orleans.

NEW ORLEANS RESIDENTS: “Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help! Help!”
”These babies. Six and eight months. The people- just walking past us.”

”No food, no water, no nothing. Whatever we have, we have been taking it. That's the only way we can survive.”

“We got the food right here. Let me show you right here! This is where they got the food.”

“Hey! Hey!”

“Look! Right here, look! They won't give us nothing! Nothing!”

“Look! Look! They won't give us none. We ain’t drinking no ice water! Nothing! We can't get it!”

”There is nobody in charge. The national guard, the police, there is nobody. Somebody needs to come take charge and put organization and get these people to safety, to get them clothes, the basics things that they need to live from day-to-day.”

“It's not about low income, this is not about rich people, poor people. It's about people. Nobody wants to hurt anybody in this city. Nobody wants to hurt these people who have these businesses. “

”We need a little air and a little food and water for god's sakes. That's it.”

AMY GOODMAN: Some of the people speaking outside and inside the Convention Center, which is a symbol of the plight of survivors in New Orleans.
