Elliott (a prof here at the university) asked me if I know of a group called “Defend New Orleans.” Actually he wasn’t sure if they’re a group or just a slogan. Someone handed him some stickers on Mardi Gras, because he moved some pylons onto Frenchmen to stop cars from coming through the block party. The guy with the stickers said they’re a group that likes stuff like that.
The stickers said “Defend New Orleans.”
Later, Elliott found them on the web. The page is somewhat mysterious. Just pix of people wearing t-shirts and some links to other groups.
Two icons appear on the stickers, on the shirts and on the website: a skull with a fleur de lis and a rifle.
I assume those are meant to protest a) the Saints taking money that could go to better causes and b) crime. I’m not sure though.
I have no clue, but I’d like to learn more.
