PROTEST! 1 pm, Sunday May 30, by Jackson Square!
BP is MURDERING THE GULF!
We are gathering Sunday, May 30 at 1 pm at the AMPHITHEATER aka “Washington Artillery Park”— the performance space that’s a big curved set of steps across Decatur St. from Jackson Square, next to Cafe Du Monde– to demand immediate, aggressive intervention by the government to STOP THE BP OIL FLOOD. Not soon, not later, not eventually, IMMEDIATELY! The government MUST TAKE ACTION!
People are angry, and have every reason to be, but this is a peaceful protest. If you feel you cannot abide by that for whatever reason, please stay away.
This event is being put together by a handful pissed-off New Orleanians determined to force full government and corporate accountability to the people of the Gulf Coast. We are not a political action committee or affiliated with any political party, business interest or candidates although we absolutely WELCOME and INVITE all groups, organizations and individuals to attend.
PLEASE spread the word… come and bring as many as you can!
UPDATE: Due to overwhelming demand, we present for all interested parties the rally’s chief organizer, New Orleans’ own Mr. Henry Thomas. When you see this shining face on Sunday, you will know you are in the right place.
We will have legal observers on-hand to deal with any police problems (although we don’t expect any).
There will also be speakers and media present.
SEE YOU THERE!!!!
For more information, please check out Our press release, our list of demands, and an article from the Mobile Press Register discussing how the BP Oil Flood kills communities, and our flyer & facebook links.
This is a PEACEFUL PROTEST. If you feel you can’t abide by that, please don’t attend…
