New Orleans Protesters Block Eviction Court Proceedings as Rent Comes Due

HeadlineJul 31, 2020

As rent comes due, housing activists across the country are demanding local protections against evictions during the pandemic. In New Orleans, members of the Renters Rights Assembly on Thursday surrounded a courthouse that handles evictions, chaining themselves together under a banner reading “Evictions = Death,” and blocking several landlords from entering the building. A similar action in Missouri Thursday also brought proceedings to a halt at a Kansas City eviction court.
