From UPI.com:

Gulf Coast activists protested Monday at Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters in Washington, demanding new housing for Hurricane Katrina survivors.

The activists also protested the latest deadline for evicting about 5,000 residents living in FEMA trailers, the McClatchy News Service reported.

“The people of the Gulf Coast don’t want FEMA trailers,” Michele Roberts of the Advocates for Environmental Human Rights said Monday. “They want to rebuild homes.”

FEMA backed off the May 30 eviction deadline while one protester said, “A dry roof over a toxic trailer beats no roof at all,” referencing the discovery that FEMA trailers were laced with formaldehyde.
