This film was taken by Jennifer Jordan Day on her visit to Helen & Paul in NoLa late last year. Helen grabbed the camera and shot the rest of the footage.
This is a sort of valentine made for Helen and Paul when they were leaving Halifax. by Becka Barker
I was a friend of Helen's. Several independent New Orleans producers worked together today to shoot video and stills of the march on City Hall that was held in our city. For an incredible day of hard work, many special thanks to: Jake Springfield, Cheryl Wagner, Rebecca Snedeker, Maxx Sizeler, Aaron Walker, George Ingmire, Amy Sanderson, Chris Jeansonne, Jennifer Douthwaite and Casey Coleman.
Here are links to 5 videos of the march. Two are of speakers at the podium, one is of interviews, and two are of footage of the march itself. They are posted on youtube.com:
High-resolution, broadcastable footage and print-resolution stills are available free of charge to the news media for reporting on this story at:www.arielmontage.com/11jan07neworleansrally
The website for the march itself is: www.silenceisviolence.org
Please pass this information along. I'm guessing that many people who attended the funeral did not get to go to the march.
Several new orleans folks who knew Helen, lead by producer Tim Watson, have posted scenes from the march against violence today on YouTube - [see the note above].
Also, a friend of Helen and Paul's, Bart Everson, spoke at the march yesterday and was interviewed by Anderson Cooper. Here is the YouTube link
Bart is the guy who does the b.rox blog. He came over to help pack up the apartment, and is so torn up, like all of us, and wants positive action in response to this senselessness.
Thanks for the website -
