An admittedly angry and frustrated citizens group is planning a march in Jackson next month to spotlight what it considers inequitable use of hurricane recovery funds.
The Amos Network held a news conference Thursday in Gulfport. Representatives from Gulfport, Biloxi and Moss Point complained about how renters and low income homeowners seem to have been forgotten by Mississippi's political leaders.
"It's unequitable. It is unfair the way this rebuilding has gone forward. And it has been intentional," Gerald Taylor said.
"If we have to get angry, and get mad to get what we need, that's what we need to do," Rev. J.L. Henry said.
The Amos Network march will be held August 21st, unless the group gets a chance to sit down with Governor Barbour and discuss its concerns.
A spokesman for the governor says his office will wait until it receives a letter from the Amos Network before it responds to its request.
