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.

Chief Organizer Henry Thomas

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.

This is a PEACEFUL PROTEST. If you feel you can’t abide by that, please don’t attend…

    how can we help?
    i write from upstate ny, 50miles from canada. saranac lake (near lake placid)
    everyday i listen ,and wait for that good news , the end of this awful dam oil gusher.
    sigh? hasn’t happened yet, i can feel that wrath ,’cause i feel it too, i want to see the end to destruction
    a end to dying wildlife, a end to lies, a better future , but ‘until we end our reliance on fossil fuels
    we’r caught by big oil? by shrills and all manner of politics that pay for a poison that’ costs us the future
    people we are not free? not until we stop relying on oil, and 200yr old tecnology to serve our daily needs.
    end the lie. end the betrayal, stop buying Bp’s oil , we have the money ,we pay ’em for there blood soaked
    oil. if everyone stopped buying everything from Bp? think what would happen, take back your future
    save your planet ,for yourselves and your children.
