“You want to talk about reform? Just say: I’m not impressed that you can get 10 degrees in prison if you’re not going to give me a chance to get out.”



On Wednesday, July 14th, Dances For Solidarity- and ongoing project led by dance artist Sarah Dahnke in collaboration with other dancers, choreographers, artists, and socially conscious individuals- hosted an evening of performances followed by a panel discussion on women’s issues as they relate to incarceration and reentry. 

At this event in particular, a dance choreographed in collaboration with Dushaan Gillum- who is incarcerated in solitary confinement in Texas- and danced by Shantell Turner, Adinas Perkins, Dolfinette Martin, Rhonda Oliver, and Latasha Williams was performed. 

The panel discussion that followed touched on the topics of education, motherhood, mentorship, systemic racism, and recidivism as they relate to incarceration, reentry, and womanhood. 

The panel is made up of women from the National Council of Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls, Family and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children (FLICC), Voice of the Experienced, Operation Restoration, and Covenant House. 

These women are Syrita Steib-Martin, Dolita Willhype, Verna Carr, and Dolfinette Martin.

WTUL News and Views DJ Under The Bus interviewed organizer Lara Crigger about Metairie Indivisible. Participants at a July 22nd Protest hosted by the organization shared comments and personal stories about why they are urging Senator Bill Cassidy to oppose the GOP Health Bill. The “Better Care Reconciliation Act” - [The Senate’s version of the GOP House Bill: The American Health Care Act of 2017- - is set for a vote July 4th. 

The “First do no harm! Statewide Rally!” was attended by over 60 people who stood out in the wind and weather as the tail end of tropical storm Cindy blew by.

Metairie Indivisible is a bipartisan community of like-minded Metairie residents fighting corruption. Along with other Indivisible chapters in LA, they have been meeting outside the offices of Senator Cassidy each week to express support for the Affordable Care Act, to express concerns about Trump’s cabinet appointees, and to stand against the recent Muslim ban.

Listen to what they had to say.

Symbols & Systems Worthy of our People: Forum #1:


In this panel discussion: Michael “Quess” Moore uses Take Em Down NOLA’s win as an example of how people power can bring about change, Malcolm Suber presents the people’s assembly process and ten point program for 2017-2018, and Angela Kinlaw informs leaders on how they can engage in the work.

On June 3rd, the People’s Assembly proposed a platform to demand for better working conditions, higher wages, affordable housing, improved public transportation, quality public education for our children, and affordable healthcare. The People’s Assembly has turned the corner from phase 1 to phase 2 and “is now working to do active outreach in making sure everyone truly understands the agenda and is part of the process of making it a reality.” 

The New Orleans Peoples’ Assembly Fight Back Manifesto 2017-2018

-We oppose all forms of jail and prison expansion
-We oppose the current DA Cannizzaro who must be removed from his position
-We oppose imperialist wars that suck the tax payer’s resources from being proactively interested in the well-being of humanity

Instead, we DEMAND the following:
1) Year-long jobs, recreation, mental health services for youth and adults, and an adult public jobs program of at least 10,000 public jobs with livable wages of NO less than $15/hour
2) Rent control and a roll back on taxes, pre-Katrina levels for households under $75,000
3) 100% funded relocation of Gordon Plaza residents who live on life threatening toxic land that is too dangerous for human life. Most environmental issues are human made and must be corrected and prevented.
4) “The Hospitality Workers Bill of Rights” to be City Approved and Honored in Practice
5) Full Funding and building of 40,000 homes for former residents of New Orleans pushed out of the city by the aftermath of Katrina
6) Fully funded, quality community controlled public schools
7) Improved and timely 24 hour RTA bus routes, especially in New Orleans East and Algiers, with improved bus stops that provide adequate seating and protection from inclement weather, along pot hole free streets
8) Full funding or building of 100 (24 hour) community based child care centers across the city
9) New Orleans to serve as an official sanctuary city, so that all residents are safe from all forms of state sanctioned violence, or deportations, and where traffic/profiling cameras are abolished
10) Full accountability (includes consent decree) for all police who operate in Orleans Parish

Keyboard ist keinesfalls gleich Keyboard. Insbesondere für den Fall, dass Sie turnusmäßig spielen, ist es wesentlich, dass Sie das Instrument erwerben, das Ihnen langanhaltend Freude macht und motiviert.

Dies Spielgefühl ist hierbei ein wichtiger Faktor. Dieses Spielgefühl mag mehrfach bestimmen, inwiefern Sie auf lange Sicht Freude am Spielen haben werden. Beachtenswerte Faktoren, auf die Sie beim Kauf des Keyboards achten müssen:

In der Auswahl der Keyboards gibt es bereits in der grundlegenden Ausstattung jede Menge Unterschiede. So sollte das Gerät unbedingt einen Umfang von fünf Oktaven bieten.

Außerdem sollten die Tasten mitnichten zu schmal oder zu kurz sein. Dies wird speziell Neulingen das Erlernen des Keyboards erleichtern.

Achten Sie gleichermaßen darauf, dass die Oberfläche der Keyboardtasten so hergestellt wurde, dass Sie keinesfalls abrutschen.

Bei Ihrer Suche sollten Sie des Weiteren beachten, dass die Lautsprecher Ihres Keyboards hochwertig sind, damit der Klang des Keyboards auch langanhaltend gut klingt und mit der Zeit nicht schlechter wird.

Achten sie darauf, dass das Gerät über jegliche Anschlussmöglichkeiten verfügt, die heute zum Standard gehören. Ein USB-Anschluss ist dieser Tage Norm bei zahlreichen Keyboards und ermöglicht es Ihnen, neue Klänge einzuspielen, sowie Dateien in das Keyboard zu laden. Es ermöglicht obendrein, eigene Sounds einzuspielen und diese auf dem Rechner zu speichern.

Wichtig ist gleichwohl eine Klinkenbuchse, um dort einen Kopfhörer anzuschließen. Dies hat den Pluspunkt, dass Sie auch in der Nacht trainieren können, ohne dass andere Menschen senkrecht in den Betten stehen (und beileibe nicht mitsingen).

Benötigen Sie Zusatzfunktionen, beispielsweise die Möglichkeit des Live-Einsatzes und unterschiedliche Sounds, greifen Sie besser zu einem Instrument der Profi-Klasse.

The radio station is falling apart. Because of the broken machines, the broadcast is constantly interrupted to the point y'all are unlistenable. I donated $225 to this year's Marathon, where did that money go? Having working CD players is paramount to having a radio station. Until WTUL replaces those broken machines, I have to listen to other stations, and that sucks!

Wow WTUL, I'm embarrassed for yall today :( The DJ on air at the 9:30am air break (interrupting Democracy Now) made a total ass of himself, whining about how we aren't listening to HIM comment on the news. Meanwhile he's interrupting the family of the man killed by police in Baton Rouge earlier this week, as well as other folks connected to that story. I think it is obvious why we have compelling interviews with folks who are relevant to the news instead of an irrelevant angry man-child like Jimmy Huck. Presumably this only happened because of some kind of summertime staffing shortage, but still, we the listeners deserve better. When the airwaves aren't being hijacked by pathetic figures like him, WTUL is still one of the best radio stations in New Orleans. But please don't ruin it, and don't like people like this go on the mic nonstop, interrupting a really important story like that of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge.

A deep dish of gratitude to WTUL for playing our new record MAXWELL, MUHLY & COULOIR...many times :) COULOIR has been to New Orleans and Baton Rogue before and you're inspiring us to come back, if for no other reason to stop by the station and meet you! You now have my ear :)
