This is a complicated issue for sure.  What exactly are they protesting?  BP taking too long to plug the hole or BP drilling for oil in the gulf or what?

I might be eating my words later, but I am happy to see people protesting because that is the purest way of showing the government the people disapprove of the way they are handling or not handling things.

Bob:  A $500K piece of equipment could have stopped this Ecological disaster.  In spite of its extraordinary profits, BP cut corners and did not have it in place.  BP's recklessness is criminal.  They have the worst safety record.  Now they are bullying everyone and acting like they own this World and do with it as they please.

Here is a link to a video of what the oil mixing with the chemicals looks like under water.  P,S, The video is NOT from BP   http://acp.repoweramerica.org/SpillVideo

It is a complicated issue, and I'm sure if you ask the people there they will have diverse opinions of what they are protesting.  However, if it were me I'd be protesting as a sign of solidarity with the people directly affected by the disaster.  As far as blaming people goes, i'd be protesting drilling for oil in places where the technology to prevent or stop failures promptly is not available, fully understood and fool-proof.  Based on my limited knowledge of the subject I believe that whoever issued the permits to drill in deep waters, without being 100% positive that the party responsible for the drilling would also be able to safely handle any worst case scenario, is criminally negligent.
