Amy: What is difference between CG Clinic and Collective?
Gary: These groups are related. Street medics helped after Katrina. In 2006 they took over apartment complex. Owner backed out and FBI took all their files. Common Ground Clinic and Collection all spun off after these court cases. Still a lot of acrimony. Gary met Malilk last October. Malik was asked to help clinic right before Isaac. He asked Gary to come in and lend a hand.
Amy: Long term goals?
Gary: Having preparedness resources available. Creating network for people to get help. Outreach and build networks. Also, Solidarity Hospital support and wetlands efforts. We are trying to build a broader consensus with other groups.
