The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) has erected new barricades — reminiscent of the ones put up on Lee Circle this weekend — on the neutral ground across Canal Street from the Jefferson Davis statue. Temporary "No Parking" signs also have gone up on Canal Street and Jefferson Davis Parkway near the statue, in effect through May 12.
At a groundbreaking for the new NOPD Second District police station this morning, Mayor Mitch Landrieu reiterated to The New Orleans Advocate that he would not divulge a timeline for the statue's removal, saying once again that it would be "sooner rather than later." A small group of protesters continues to wait at the Uptown lakeside corner of Jefferson Davis and Canal.
