The photo above shows Larry Everest reading the following to BP representative Tom Pennington:

WE DEMAND THAT BP AND THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AT ALL LEVELS

1. Stop the oil gusher. Bring all necessary resources to bear, including from the entire oil industry, regardless of cost. Employ all necessary resources to clean up all the oil and gas, prevent it from hitting shore, treat injured wildlife, protect wildlife and public health, and repair all devastation.

2. Immediately end use of dispersants. Fund all necessary scientific and medical research on human and environmental impact of dispersants. Immediately begin remediation of damage caused by dispersants.

3. Full mobilization, access, and funding of scientists, engineers, and environmentalists, independent of BP and the government, to investigate the oil blowout and its impacts on ecosystems and human health, and to monitor and supervise all aspects of the response to this disaster. Full support—not suppression or punishment—for peoples’ efforts to protect the environment, wildlife, and public health.

4. Complete transparency. Disclosure of all information and documentation, including scientific, medical and technical data, and decision-making concerning every aspect of this disaster. No censorship, gag orders, threats, or punishment, including on anyone employed, hired, contracted, or who volunteers.

5. Immediately survey direct and indirect health impacts of oil blowout and provide all necessary medical services to those affected free of charge. Immediately protect the health of and provide all necessary equipment for all impacted or involved in clean up.

6. Stop oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Full compensation, retraining, and new employment, including major public works programs, for all affected, and for all losing livelihood and income from the disaster.

7. Prosecute those responsible for this crime against the environment and the people.
