BP Protest in New Orleans

The New Orleans Protest Against BP and The Government’s paralysis in the oil spill crisis started in New Orleans’ French Quarter at 1pm today.  In spite of the rain, cheering crowds showed up with signs, yet major media was absent.  In exasperation, several of the protesters Tweeted:  Where are the nat'l news networks at the #bp #oilspill protest in New Orleans? What do we have to do?

Thank you Twitter for allowing us to get the latest news in the oil spill debacle, during this hour of darkness in America’s history!  The press has been censured and stifled by BP and its henchmen.  It is up to citizen journalists to disseminate the news in the greatest Environmental Disaster the World has ever seen.

gmf:  Wow!  Poignant words:

 

From the looks of things, this is no longer America, at least not what I thought America was, but simply a large plantation for corporate masters.

These are terrific photos! I too spoke at this event. I am also covering it on my radio show and associated web page, I am outraged at the failure of the Feds to lift a finger, and Obama has utterly failed to send any help. No super tankers, skimmers, manpower. Refusal to allow berm barriers to rotec marshed. Photoop trips to manage his image, with no regard for managing the disaster itself.His propaganda machine masquerading as the press wll not report on this, focusing only on the gusher and ignoring the preventable destruction AGAIN of Louisiana. Here is my speech, shortened considerably due to rain and time  constraints. I post it because it covers alot of points in one place. Source articles re: super tankers, swat teams etc cna be found at my website: www.baldyandtheblonde.com

 

This is Memorial Day weekend, a special time when we honor those Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, by shedding their blood in defense of the USA.   The blood of thousands of Louisiana citizens has been spilled on the shores of foreign lands in defense of the United States of America.  

Today, oil is being spilled on the shores of our state of Louisiana by an impudent and arrogant  foreign  company,  with NO DEFENSE from the United States of America.   For the second time in five years, Louisiana  has been abandoned by the same federal government that put us in danger to begin with, by usurping our power and exploiting our resources without compensation, and denying our rights to defend ourselves.  

And so on this American holiday, we must regretfully ask: Is Louisiana really a State in the United States of America, or are we a colony whose wealth is to be exploited without compensation by the USA?   

  Louisiana provides One Third OF THE ENERGY SUPPLY OF THE US. For this, we bear all the risk  For this, we  get no reward.    Let me illustrate: Louisiana provides more than ONE THIRD OF THE Seafood OF THE US, this seafood industry fuels our tourism industry, our seafood and tourism industries are at risk for the nation's energy supply.   The corporate headquarters of the oil companies and their "big jobs" are in Houston.    

All the risk no reward. A colony? or a state?      

EVERY other state  that bears the risk of oil exploration is paid billions of dollars in oil royalties by the oil companies.
  Louisiana by far carries most of the risk of oil exploration for the NATION. There are 4000 rigs in the Gulf Of Mexico. 3500 are off the coast of Louisiana.    

In Louisiana , we who bear the HIGHEST risk are paid less than 10% in royalties. By comparison, Wyoming gets over one billion dollars annually!  

So who gets our BILLIONS OF DOLLARS in annual royalties paid by oil companies for the oil taken off of Louisiana's coast, INCLUDING BP?. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT! The same federal government that refuses to send super tankers that can scoop the oil at the site. The same federal government that refuses to  send skimmers, that refuses to send manpower, that refuses to endorse our barrier island plan, that took over flood protection, and gave us floodwalls and levees that collapsed below design level, that channels the river for their ease of commerce to our detriment, that now refuses to stop the advancing enemy before it reaches our shores.     

THERE IS ONE MAN THAT CAN STOP THE FLOW OF OIL ONTO OUR SHORES.
AMERICA'S SHORES. AMERICA'S WETLANDS. That man is The President of the United States.  
OUR PRESIDENT SAYS HE IS "THE MAN". 
HE SAYS THE BUCK STOPS WITH HIM.  
BUT THOSE ARE JUST WORDS
 
WE DEMAND ACTION.
 
CAPPING THE WELL IS ONE THING.
 
BUT THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR A DROP OF OIL REACHING OUR SHORES  
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO , Mr President, IS LIFT A FINGER AND ISSUE AN ORDER TO SAVE US.
 
NOW.   It has been 40 days.  
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ? 

We do not need cleanup, because we will be destroyed by then. 

We need to stop the oil before it completely destroys our wetlands and marshes, the nursery of abundant wildlife, and our way of life.
 
THIS IS SIMPLY A MATTER OF HAVING THE WILL TO SAVE LOUISIANA,
  WHO HAS GIVEN SO MUCH TO THIS COUNTRY AND RECEIVED SO LITTLE.
Louisiana, w
hose wealth is exploited without compensation for the benefit of the country. 
Louisiana, whose wetlands are eroded without compensation for the benefit of the country.  

DO IT, MR PRESIDENT. 
Pick Up the Phone.   Order the barrier islands built now, send in the manpower to do it.  
Send the super tankers, which can scoop the oil AT THE SITE of the gusher.  
Defend our beaches, as we have defended America.  
Prove that our sacrifices have not been in vain.  
Prove that we in Louisiana are citizens of the United States of America.

Michelle:  Wow! 

Thank you! 

Although Louisiana doesn't have the politicians' support, it certainly has the people's support.  I am there in spirit.  My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Louisiana! 

May this disaster end soon, before the devastation is irreversible.

Everyone in this protest is fucking retarded. It's not like they purposely made the oil spill. The UK will remain the best country, and the strongest. What happened was an accident, but dumbass americans won't realize that because they're too uptight on everything. If you're seriously going to blame the whole country for this, seriously fuck you? What happened in the oil spill was an ACCIDENT. Get the fuck over it. BP will still be the most popular gas station, and will remain that way.
