Get Your Activism On! Hold BP Responsible.

7 years ago

MoveOn.org is sponsoring a rally in Louisville, Kentucky this Thursday. The rally is to urge Congress to  make BP take responsibility for cleaning up the oil spill in the Gulf. Here are the details:

The BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. It will take years and billions of dollars to repair the damage to the Gulf Coast’s ecosystems and fishing and tourism industries.

Who will pay for this awful mess? If BP gets its way, you will.
So I’m working with the local MoveOn Council to organize a rally in Louisville—to tell Congress to make BP pay!

The event is on Thursday, Jun. 10, 2010, at 5:00 PM in Louisville. The location of our event is: Douglas Loop.

I’ll be attending the one in Louisville this Thursday. I urge you to go to this rally. Protests and rallies are a great way to participate in this political system, and a good way to show that your support making BP take personal responsibility for cleaning up after itself–in an ocean that belongs to everyone.
