Gulf community tells RFK Center calls for medical help are ignored
Mississippi Public Broadcasting reported on July 25 that Kerry Kennedy, President of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, met with Gulf Coast fishermen as part of the RFK Center’s Gulf Coast delegation to assess the ongoing health impact of the BP drilling disaster of April 2010. At a meeting with the advocacy group STEPS Coalition on Monday, in Biloxi, Mississippi, Ms. Kennedy said, "Access to healthcare has become more acute in the wake of the oil spill, and the types of illnesses people are suffering. People around here have never had adequate healthcare access. That’s what we’ve been hearing."
The delegation, hosted by Gulf Coast organizer Stephen Bradberry, the 2005 Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award Laureate and Executive Director of the New Orleans-based Alliance Institute, has visited communities in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. It concludes with a briefing in Washington, DC, on July 27.
