Protest BP and Offshore Oil Drilling!
Once again the fossil fuel industry has brought crisis to the Gulf Coast. Devastation of untold proportions spews non-stop from BP’s oil well on the heels of Obama’s plan to expand offshore drilling. Now is the time to stop offshore drilling dead in its tracks
and drive another nail into the fossil fuel industry’s coffin. Join with others around the country and take action Friday May 14 to demand:

-An immediate ban on all offshore drilling
-A rapid and just transition away from fossil fuels
-No bailouts for the oil industry. All recovery costs must be paid for by BP, Halliburton, Transocean and other implicated companies.
-The federal government must remove any caps on liability for oil companies.
-BP provides full compensation for impacted communities and small businesses.
-BP provides full funding for long-term ecosystem restoration for impacted areas.

Raise your voices, express your outrage and defend the earth!
Bring signs, noise makers, passion and your friends.
