tarball expressI wish to commend you on your continuing work on behalf of the people still being affected by the 2010 BP Oil Catastrophe. As you know, on a daily basis the lifeless corpses of birds, fish, turtles and dolphins wash up at some 10 times the usual mortality rate. Thick, black, sticky, toxic oil continues to come in, often accompanied by a bubbly, peanut butter colored dispersant/oil cocktail.

Gaines of Lucedale, Mississippi, a former BP oil disaster clean-up worker who has fallen ill, rallies thousands of youth outside of BP's lobbying headquarters.

On Monday, April 18th, Tax Day, thousands of youth marched on  BP's offices in Washington, and demanded they pay the $9.9 Billion in taxes they are dodging by writing off loses from their own oil disaster.
