This Friday at high noon join with CCAN, Public Citizen, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, Energy Action Coalition, 350.org, Hip Hop Caucus and the Center for Biological Diversity as we hold BP accountable for its high crimes and misdemeanors. We need YOU to help us deliver our charges against BP!
Join us from 12-1 outside of BP’s D.C. headquarters at 1101 New York Avenue, NW.
Charge #1: Criminal negligence. BP has a long history of worker, consumer and environmental violations. BP’s culture of negligence, shunning of common safety devices and inability to adequately respond to the mounting catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico and the surrounding communities warrants a citizen finding of criminal negligence.
Charge #2: Unfettered corporate influence. Corporate meddling in the political process has led to oil-friendly regulators and lawmakers, and a blatant disregard for the regulatory process.
Charge #3: Need for clean solutions. Even with increased safety and environmental regulations, oil drilling is still inherently dangerous. The only way to ensure we don’t have any more catastrophes is to stop offshore drilling altogether. Instead, we should pursue clean energy and energy independence.
