Bucktown Fishermen Ousted

Bucktown in Metairie, Louisiana

Fishermen prepare to move out of the area where their ancestors have lived and fished for two centuries. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has expropriated all the property known as Bucktown Fishing Village and are paying the people at Post Katrina prices. Where will the fishermen now dock their boats and their equipment that is their livelihood?
