Reopen the beach for Public use sign now

Private landowners recently closed down approximately 80% of all Southeast Louisiana Public Access Beach by placing wooden post across the beach at Fourchon extending into the Gulf of Mexico and closing off Elmer's Island after the death of the previous owner. As it states in the Louisiana Revised Statues Article 450 Public things that belong to the state are such as running waters, the waters and bottoms of natural navigable water bodies, the territorial sea, and the seashore. Also Louisiana Revised Statues Article Art. 452 states Public things and common things subject to public use. Everyone has the right to fish in the rivers, ports, roadsteads, and harbors, and the right to land on the seashore. Furthermore the private landowners are claiming the land created by allouvation (the increasing of land area along a shore by deposited sediment) as theirs but the Revised Statues Article 500 states there is no right to alluvion or dereliction on the shore of the sea or of lakes. By signing this petition you are stating that you want this 80% of beach that the public used to use reopened.

    I think its a shame for a company to close access to a beach that has made many memories for many children and adults alike. I have fond memories as a child fishing and camping on this beach. Keep it open. Take down the pilling.
