I am from the UK and have been following the stories from day one of the Deepwater disaster however I do not believe any lies that MSM (Main Stream Media) announce on Britian's News Network and as MSM have steered most of UK's societies attention away from the Gulf of Mexico a lot of people here would like to KNOW the real-deal what is happening over in YOUR country???????????

I come up with this idea to make this thread after reading this inspirational comment from a member here from ATS "Crazydaisy."

Here is the quote below:


Obama tells those of another country that people are going to die by the millions but says nothing to the United States. We need the people of the gulf to tell us what is going on - families of the sick, medical workers,BP workers why wouldn't they speak out? If this is true, when will the evacuations begin?


Where I have highlighted the above quote and under-lined the text COULD anybody from the Gulf of Mexico please come-forward and explain and tell us YOUR stories and what REALLY is happening in YOUR country/state?

Thankyou for your time.

Take Care and Get well.

D.

I live between Gulfport and Biloxi.

For the first few weeks, after the rig exploded, there were cleanup crews on the beach, standing around doing absolutely nothing. They are very busy now, every day, cleaning up oil, and now dead fish. I have relatives in Louisiana, and Mississippi, that are working to help clean up the oil. Some are on the beaches, and some are doing things like cooking, for these cleanup crews.

There have been no reports of any people on cleanup crews on the beaches here, in Mississippi getting sick. The public can go to the beach, and you even see some people in the water. Fishing is now allowed again, but on a catch and release basis.

I do know, about a month ago, I would wake up to the smell of smoke, from oil that was being burned. I also had nose bleeds about that time, for the first time in decades.

A couple of miles down the road, there is a huge tent city set up for the cleanup crews. Those that come from out of state, are staying in this tent city as well as others. I do know the people cleaning the beaches, get about $12.50 per hour, meals, and if they don't stay in the tent city, per diems. They work for about 20 minutes, as it is very hot, and then rest up for about 40 minutes. They have to wear protective clothing over their own clothes.

The economy is very bad, as people have cancelled vacations plans to the Gulf. Casinos, hotels, restaurants, and those types of businesses, especially.

That is what is going on in the area where I live. Because of the way the coastline is, the oil was reaching the beaches in Florida, before here in Mississippi.

So, there you have an update from the coastal area near where I live. Other areas might be harder hit, so, I'd be interested to read what other members along the Gulf have to say.

Not to be picky but what does "new" Gulf of Mexico mean? Are you confusing New Mexico with the Gulf of Mexico?

I keep hearing about sick people but never see any proof. Just a lot of people talking. I also keep hearing and even created a thread on the expected evacuation but it all seems to be BS. Texas saw a liitle oil but thats nothing new for Galveston and other eastern Texas shores.

I have corrected the title and there is another error that I learnt from MSM because that is what they referred as The New Gulf of Mexico.

First....thankyou so much for your concern. I live in New Orleans and people here are very nervous about what may happen next. Our beautiful coastline is all messed up, and I am sure you have seen the pictures of the pelicans, sea turtles, and other animals covered in oil and suffering.....fish kills etc. The economy is suffering because so much of our culture and lifestyle revolves around the Gulf of Mexico. We have a huge seafood industry here....or did.I am really concerned about this tropical storm coming. It is a weak one, but strong enough to push alot of oil inland. It's a sad day here.

And thankyou for your comment. I have followed up a lot of the events online and tryed to get this information from trusted sources. Its dispicable and horrific for me to see what has happened over in the Gulf of Mexico aswell as with it being a hot-spot of for my family that would take holidays there.

In rememberance of the Gulf of Mexico I have put on my blue Mexico t'shirt today from the Gran Bahia Priciple, Riviera Maya ***** Mexico. Its got very big logo's on it and stands out with Mexico in white bold text. It definately grabs people attention and is a reminder for people over here in the UK. That's about the time I only really where t'shirts from over countries as reminders of the news/events we're missing out on.

I have seen the marshes on youtube video's and its a horrid orangey, brown oily colour that has embedded itself in those grass roots, that's the best way I can explain it. It reminds me of chemical dumping they do in quarries since where I live in the most industrial area in Britian, even though we have a lot of tourist attractions needless to say what lies under the greenery around here. That's why I recognsie the oil damage in the marshes from those videos.

There were pictures of birds engulfed in brown oily from head to toes and all over their eyes and inside their mouths and throat's. Its horrible and I know how painful it is getting oil in the eyes and it took over 20 minutes to to clean one eyeball. It burns endlessly until its all removed. Who know's how much pain those animals are in.

I don't know about Louisiana, but Mississippi, has already declared a state of emergency do to the storm.

Although there are no evacuation plans in effect, they are saying that even though the storm is not strong, that it is expected to push more oil ashore, and possibly to areas that haven't seen any yet.

I have a cousin that lives in a canal off of Pass Christian, and while he hasn't seen any yet, in the canal, that would be one of the areas that might get it.

Those pics are heartbreaking....the one that gets to me the most is the one where the pelican is raising his wings to fly, but he can't because he is covered with oil.....and he has his beak open wide and it looks like he is screaming. I hate to see animals suffer.....they are the innocents.

Thank you very much. I look forward to hearing from the people that are directly affected by the gulf oil disaster.

Thank you for telling us what is going on in your area. On the beach where people are going and even getting in the water is there no advisory not to do this? Is this the same beach that is being cleaned of oil? Are they telling people it is safe to be there and swim?

Take care, we are thinking of you!

To answer your question, there are no advisories, that I have seen at the beach telling people to stay out of the water.

You will see a clean up crew on one area of the beach, go down a little further, and see people wading, or swimming. A little later on, they will have switched areas of the beach.

I had been going to the beach quite a bit to see what was going on, but let up some this week when the dead fish started coming up on shore. They are being cleaned up quickly, but there were millions of them! Perhaps since the fish showed up, people are told not to go in the water, but I haven't seen anything in the local news posted about it.

If we don't have rain from the storm this time tomorrow, perhaps I'll go over to see what's up.

Thanks for your well wishes! As StealthyKat mentioned though, the silent losers in all of this are the animals, sea life, and birds.

Please don't worry too much, it sends out bad vibrations and your fears will pass to your neighbors.
If there were a real reason to worry with the internet you would be hearing multitudes of people screaming foul and not just the MSM.
"The Man" is just feeding off of our fears, anger, and hatred.
Be careful, not worrysome.
Hope that helps.

We probably are too....a lot of that oil could be pushed ashore in both states and Alabama maybe. I just hope it fizzles out.

Nothing is going on in the Gulf and you can blow up pictures of a # dieing and covered in oil but the facts are this is a false flag attack with golden ball sacks making a fortune and is all about a personal carbon tax from the IMF

750 boats are having trouble finding oil to clean up and ex censors workers are begging for new jobs working 2 hours a day cleaning up oil.

These clean up boats consume oil faster than it was ever released by the leak but hey if you think paying more tax is going to make things better then go flog yourselves on the back.

i know people on the coast see this as very real and so do dead people from 9/11 but it's a false flag with the UK being the scape goat this time.

Follow the money it leads back to a dead patch of sand

Maybe you should come visit, then say it's not real. I have seen it, touched it, and smelled it. I have seen the dying and dead animals. I have family members who are financially devastated. I have seen the oil covering the rocks and the marshes. It is very real, unfortunately.

I would think of there are millions of dead fish washing up on shore it would be good to stay clear of the water. Thank you for answering my questions.

"Nothing going on in the Gulf" - I would say you don't live there. Please have some compassion for those that do!
