Musicians Fight Plans To Silence New Orleans
On Friday hundreds of musicians marched into City Hall under the banner of The Music And Culture Coalition of New Orleans. They took over the council chambers after a planned meeting had been cancelled, and accepted an invitation from Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell to hold a public meeting.
MACCNO spokeswoman Hannah Kreiger-Benson said: "We've often seen these issues around sound regulations framed as a conflict between musicians and residents. That's not right. We live here, we work here, we vote here; we are the residents." Read what happened here.
