On Wednesday May 12th Seize BP, which is sponsored by the ANSWER Coalition held a protest in front of the BP offices on New Montgomery Street, to demand that the US Government Seize BP and all it’s assets.
It is common knowledge that BP is involved in a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Other corporations that appear to be involved are Transocean and Halliburton.

Years ago we opposed UC Berkeley's partnership with BP, now is the time to end it!

Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI)

Led by U.C. Berkeley, the Energy Bioscience Institute is a collaborative partnership between UC Berkeley, Berkeley Lab, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and BP, supported by a grant from the BP Corporation. The EBI is dedicated to the development of the next generation of biofuels and sponsors research on agricultural, scientific, environmental, and soci-ecomomic aspects of biofuel production. Other areas of research include fossil fuel bioprocessing, carbon sequestration and microbially-enhanced hydrocarbon recovery.

US should seize all assets of BP including those designated for the Helios project to pay for the Gulf clean-up!

UC regents are in bed with BP for millions:

http://berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2007/02/01_ebi.shtml

Protest the Building site and demand UC Berkeley postpone plans for a BP lab in the heart of Berkeley, At least until well after the Gulf clean-up is complete. There is 500 million to be realocated if the US seizes all BP's American Assets now.

BP - Helios project:

Research there would focus on carbon-neutral biofuels, and would be conducted chiefly under the auspices of the BP-funded Energy Biosciences Institute and Berkeley's bioengineering program.

http://berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2010/01/11_helios.shtml

the building site is at the corner of Shattuck and Hearst acroos from Oscar's and Triple Rock. Come out Friday for the day of action and protest BP's presence in California at UC Berkeley!
