The fishermen in the Gulf area are desperate for work but they are also very much on guard when it comes to dealing with B.P. (As they very well should be)

These people take pride in their trade providing top quality seafood for decades.
Now soon after the government has declared the Gulf safe.
The dock owners or employers of the fishermen are requiring them to sign a waiver that they are responsible for contaminated fish.





B.P. is trying to share the damage with hard working fishermen , who aren't as
ingnorant as they thought.

Where is our Government, or is it B.P. ?

The government declared the Gulf safe not the fishermen yet the liability falls on the fishermen? Sounds like the governments word alone isn't good enough for dock owners/employers.

Obviously FDA inspections aren't impressing employers. Those waivers should be signed by BP not the fishermen. It appears the government/FDA/BP has completely abandoned Gulf fishermen/consumers.The employers don't completely trust the catches yet we are told it's ok to eat Gulf seafood. Maybe the dock owners should be in charge at the FDA.

This is so typical. Why should the government protect the Gulf fishermen any better than they've protected farmers/factory workers etc.? We're all fair game. So what the hell do we need the FDA for if a smell test for food is all that is needed? The government is making a complete mockery of our entire system. Makes me wonder how well the FDA inspects the rest of our food. Pretty soon we'll all be required to sign waivers every time we go to the grocery store? Very powerful video BTW.

thanks for sharing, it really makes me sad, to speak to people and hearing them repeat the same crap BP and the fed say, that its all gone, that more than 75% of the oil has been recovered, i mean people please, one does not need to be a "rocket surgeon" to understand that what the dispersant did was break the oil molecule into tiny specs of oil, that will be impossible to remove, if the oil faucet was open 8 months, you cannot truly believe that in 2 months they cleaned the whole mess, its just overwhelming to see that we actually believe that its only the problem of the people living in the gulf, this and all planets are systems, all is tied together, there is only one ocean, the same water ebbs and flows throughout the entire planet, through us, its everyone's problem, and we are as usual, covering it up, by any means necessary, and when we don't do that we just simply ignore it....
