August 4th marked a year since it was announced to the public that 75% of the oil in the Gulf of Mexico was gone. But this is not true.

Per activist Cherri Foytlin of Rayne, Louisiana " It is time. Over the 15 months since the explosion and consequential sinking of the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, we - the people of the Gulf, rightly claim that we have exhausted all other avenues with concern to finding justice for our communities affected."

Fishermen, activists, moms, dads, grandma's grandpa's,brothers, sisters, community organizers, the healthy and the sick gathered together for a peaceful nonviolent protest on August 4th in New Orleans in front of BP's headquarters on Poydras Street at the end of the work day after most people had left. Cherri Foytlin attempted to bring some fresh tar balls from the Mississippi shores to BP's office but was not allowed in the building. The group demanded that they be heard-that the oil is still there, that they stop blaming shrimpers and fisherman for all the dead sea life washing up on the shores on the Gulf, and demanding that the health care costs of the many people in the Gulf States who have ended up sick since the spill be reimbursed.BP has not paid one claim for these people.

Activist Cherri Foytlin, mother of 6, earlier this year walked from New Orleans to Washington DC to raise awareness of these issues. No-one is listening. She crossed the line from the public sidewalk to peacefully sit in front of BP's headquarters with her tar balls she wished to give back to BP. She was arrested, along with two other activists for "tresspassing. "





They try to claim that things are well in the gulf of Mexico but they are not.


"We have too long been the energy sacrifice for the nation And to the criminal acts of BP, who is NOT "making it right" said Cherri Foytlin.

Ms.Foytlins report on her arrest is here:

Here is a recent video from the not so clean gulf:



The once pristine beach of Horn Island Mississippi:





Death count to date: 11 human beings,145 dolphins, 603 sea turtles, 5,656 wild birds, and 20% loss of tuna spawn.

Please help the people of the Gulf of Mexico make others aware that the oil is STILL HERE! It still needs to be cleaned up!




If you get the chance to see it, watch the HBO show "Saving Pelican 895."
It shows the rescue of one oiled pelican and it really brings the point home of what has happened to these defenseless animals.

A word from the dolphins:




Please help. Fight the Tar Sands and Keystone XL pipeline running down the middle of the US. Fight Shell drilling in the Arctic. Scream for faster development of clean energy and demand save drilling practices before we have another horrible disaster. We have but ONE planet! If WE destroy it, what will our future generations have?

Is it true that the QUEEN OF ENGLAND ,Windsor family own all mineral rights in all
commonwealth countries and long standing agreements of RESOURCE ownership,
through ADMIRALTY LAW. This is why you did not receive JUSTICE.

When all avenues of Peaceful protest have been exhausted and when your Government, State and Federal refuse to hear your grievances , what course of action are you left with ?

BP is the Criminal in your midst are you going to allow this Criminal to escape prosecution ?

You have to ask yourself, What would George Washington Do ?
What would Patrick Henry Do ?

Would these men allow a British Cooperation to rape and destroy their heritage ?

So, Citizen of the Gulf, Quit complaining and take real actions, only then will you be heard.

So right you are!

And that exactly is what they are doing! From Cherri's FB site:

Tuesday, September 6 · 7:00am - 7:00pm
Location: Everywhere
By:Cherri Foytlin, Danny E. Reed, Karen Savage, Laurel Lockamy

The day after Labor Day, September 6, 2011 we will issue a wake up call to relevant governmental entities and British Petroleum concerning the continuing human rights violations now occurring in the Gulf of Mexico in the wake of the Gulf Oil Catastrophe of 2010.

Everyone, no matter where you are, will be able to mass affect the normal work day of high ranking officials in an internet blitz concerning the following issues and demands.

WE DEMAND OF BRITISH PETROLEUM AND FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS THAT THE FOLLOWING IMMEDIATE AND DIRECT ACTIONS BE TAKEN:

- THE CONTINUATION OF INTERIM PAYMENTS AND THE PROVISION OF A FAIR, AND TRANSPARENT, INDEPENDENT CLAIMS PROCESS

- AT LEAST A THREE YEAR SUBSIDIZING OF THE GULF COAST FISHING INDUSTRY, AND PERHAPS FURTHER - UNTIL A TRUE ACCOUNT AND HEALING HAS TAKEN PLACE TO BOTH THE INDUSTRY AND THE ECOSYSTEM

- THAT OUR FISHERMEN AND MA'AM'S NOT BE BLAMED FOR THE DEATH OF ANY OF OUR WILDLIFE WITHOUT AN HONEST AND OPEN INQUIRY INTO THE USE OF OF THE TOXIC CHEMICAL DISPERSANT COREXIT, AND A FINAL ACCOUNT OF THE OVERALL IMPACT OF THE CATASTROPHE ITSELF.

- THAT AN RCAC, CITIZEN'S OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE BE FORMED ON THE FEDERAL LEVEL FOR THE GULF OF MEXICO AND BE FUNDED BY THE OIL INDUSTRY.

- THAT ANY AND ALL FUNDS FROM THE BP FINES CONCERNING THE CLEAN WATER ACT BE FUNNELED BACK TO THE GULF COMMUNITIES AND ECOSYSTEMS AFFECTED.

- THAT BRITISH PETROLEUM BE HELD TO THE HIGHEST ACCOUNTABILITY AND IN COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY FOR THEIR ACTIONS UP UNTIL NOW.

- THAT ALL HEALTH CLAIMS FILED WILL RECEIVE FULL REVIEW BY AN INDEPENDENT TASK FORCE AND THAT HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS REGARDING THIS EVENT WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED AS A PART OF FINAL PAYMENT.

- THAT A NEW UNDERSTANDING BE REACHED THAT THE PEOPLES OF THE GULF COAST WILL NOT "GO SILENTLY INTO THE NIGHT", THAT CLEAN AIR, WATER AND SOIL ARE HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES, THAT ANYTHING LESS IS A HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION, AND THAT ANY AND ALL VIOLATORS WILL BE HELD TO THE HIGHEST ACCOUNT OF THE LAW.

- A TRUE CLEAN-UP MADE ON ALL CONTINUING IMPACTED BEACHES AND MARSHES AND THAT THOSE CLEAN UP WORKERS BE TREATED IN A FAIR AND SAFE WAY

BE IT KNOWN, THAT THE PEOPLE OF THE GULF COAST, AND BEYOND, WILL NOT LAY SILENT UNTIL ALL OF THE ABOVE DEMANDS HAVE BEEN MET.

THE TIME FOR NEGOTIATIONS HAS PASSED.

Full details of the NVDA will be revealed closer to the date, please only RSVP if you plan on using your voice to affect change using this new generational form of civil disobedience that will require you about an hour of computer time.

For more information and to keep up to date on further actions, go to www.facebook.com...​ges/The-Oil-Is-Still-Here-​and-So-Are-We/267702813245​266?sk=wall for more information, or to www.facebook.com...​ges/Gulf-Change/2293609204​11954 to join the larger movement for clean air, water and soil as a human right - because anything less is a human rights violation!

Please help! Thanks!

Louisiana resident here. Yes, BP was negligent and should have been taken more to task for their crimes. Ditto Halliburton. However, the best thing that can happen for the Gulf Coast communities right now is for the Obama admin to actually allow drilling to begin again on a scale previous to the spill. Just enforce the existing safety regs. If that were done in 2010, the spill never would've happened, Obama wouldn't have talked a tough game while allowing BP to tell him exactly what they were going to do. Big talk in the press, asking how high he should jump in reality.
Is there likely a good bunch of oil on the bottom of the Gulf close to the well and still remnants elsewhere? Yes, it's a shame, but fishing is coming back and Gulf seafood is the most tested food anywhere on the planet. We need the oil industry back in full force down here. Not just for our local economy, but for our national sovereignty.

While it is appreciated, a bunch of Yankee liberals and hippies with body paint drumming and chanting isn't going to do much for anyone but the egos of self possessed "do gooders."

We need the platforms back in action.

Peace

The rig count in the US is up over 327 rigs from July of 2010. However many deepwater rigs left the US shores and went overseas.




I have heard of many stories of how the unemployment rate would increase due to the moretorium and spill but have yet to find statistics proving this.

I have found this article which includes unemployment numbers:


democrat2democrat.blogspot.com...

and this article which talks of 2 wealthy men who contributed well to Bobby Jindal and the moratorium connection:






I am 200% behind enforcing regs. Had this been done previously this mess may not have happened.

I have had Gulf coast fishermen personally tell me not to eat the seafood from the gulf. Do you have links to independent testing that wasn't paid for by BP (Big Polluter)?

My understanding of the people at the protest was that they were from Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida. Where did you get "a bunch of Yankee liberals and hippies with body paint drumming and chanting" from?

Thanks for your input and discussion.

I don't have to look up statistics. The deep oil rigs are the future and where the bulk of the real oil economy is nowadays. The jobs lost to the moratorium have been devastating to the coastal communities (paired with the fisherman's woes, of course). I don't have a link, but I can tell you from personal experience that many people have either left the state for Texas or have struggled to find new work. It is not just the rig workers. The rigs supported helicopter companies, restaurants, grocery stores, clothing outlets, bars, and, ironically I guess, the recreational fishing industry (oil rigs create awesome artificial reefs for marine life including red snapper, lemon fish, trout, etc).
I do not doubt that Jindal has plenty of oil money going toward his campaign coffers. So do Mary Landrieu, David Vitter, Cedric Richmond, Steve Scalise, and every other Republican and Democrat in the federal, state, and local government in the gulf region. I'd bet most politicians in Iowa and Illinois take corn money and support ethanol subsidies. That industry also supports thousands of families up in those parts.

I find it hard to believe that a fisherman told you to stop eating fish. That's like a the local baker telling you to watch your carbs.
That being said, the FDA, EPA, and NOAA have been involved in seafood testing. I agree that they may not be the most trustworthy sources. However, while very hesitant to start eating my staple seafood again, I slowly began and am almost back to my old eating habits (oyster prices make them cost prohibitive to eat frequently).

Most people I know have too, and like me, have shown no symptoms of "Gulf Oil disease".
I have heard of some of the cleanup workers getting sick and not being compensated.

Please do not mistake my calm or rejection of alarmism for complacency. I vehemently hate BP for what they did to my state. We were almost over Katrina, the Saints had just won the SuperBowl, everything was looking up and then those d-bags go and oil the Gulf. I feel they were not properly punished and the federal response was at best a joke. Despite favoritism toward oil companies in the past, Bobby Jindal and other local leaders did much more to protect our wetlands than the BP controlled NOAA or Coast Guard.

I'm not sure how familiar you are with Louisiana, Mississippi, or the Florida Panhandle but those folks were obviously not natives of the area. Perhaps they are transplants to New Orleans.

And my input is not meant as a protest against your general anger toward BP. I just wanted to bring a local perspective and some balance to the debate. Oil is a major producer for the state. Most oil companies do a good job. BP has a decades long track record of pitiful safety breaches. We should enforce safety on the oil industry and punish them harshly for non compliance but we shouldnt throw the baby out with the bathwater.

The moratorium forced oil companies to re-examine their safety plans. Do you realize they had universal safety plans in effect, including one that involved walrus? Where are there walrus in Louisiana or the Gulf of Mexico? I can show you pictures of a dead coyote, a dead bird and a dead dolphin taken this weekend on the Gulf shores of Louisiana but I doubt either of us can find a walrus! There was a necessary halt in deepwater drilling in order to force the industry to safeguard the lives of offshore oilfield workers and prevent such a mess from happening to our hard working citizens who risk their lives to provide the country with energy, and to protect the environment and wildlife. I have no problem with the oil companies drilling for oil. I do have a problem with companies disregarding their own safety plans and making human lives disposable! I firmly believe it will be the oil industry that takes us from fossil fuel to clean green energy. Oil companies currently have biofuel divisions.Here is an article regarding economic impact from August 2nd:




As of Tuesday, BOEMRE had signed-off on 11 new and 32 revised deepwater exploration plans, and eight new and 11 revised deepwater development plans, since June 2010, Bromwich wrote. Thirty-five of those deepwater exploration plans and three of the development plans were approved following site-specific environmental assessments, he wrote.


One has to wonder why do oil rigs create awesome artificial reefs for marine life including red snapper, lemon fish, trout, etc? Are natural ecosystems so degraded that sealife populations would not be stable without these artifical reefs? Have we removed the natural habitats by pollution, digging, landloss, or the extinction of key species which these fish depend on in their natural environment so that they have created an unatural ecosystem around oil platforms?

Yes, a Gulf fisherman recently told me not to eat the seafood. Some people are actually more concerned for their fellow man than for money. This web site is independent testing done on seafood. I wish the results were more "lay people" friendly! In the end, we all need to decide what we want to eat.

Here's an article written today regarding the numerous sick fish that are coming out of the Gulf waters.

Sick Gulf Fish

Seafood testing



Here's a video reporting on one of the men sick and dying and showing the oil still washing on the shores.



The oil industry as a whole has been complacent as was the US Government. They attempted to apply inland drilling safety regulations to deepwater drilling. BP irks me that they are not cleaning up their mess. Why are they not releasing autopsy results from dead baby dolphins or allowing independent autopsies be done?
BP wins a Big One



People are sick and some are dying due to the toxic effects of the oil and dispersents. It really is sad that our fellow human beings are being denied their right to access by qualified toxicologists and to have their healthcare paid for by BP.



I fully support the people of the Gulf making a living in the oil industry, but not if the cost involves the lives of these men who work to enable us to have this energy, those whom live in the areas surrounding the Gulf, the livelihood of fishermen and the whole ecosystem of the Gulf. We need safe drilling and companies who will accept their liability as well as profits! For the second quarter this year BP profits were $5.3 BILLION dollars!

BP profits

And the people of the Gulf coast are stuck with the mess-destroyed wetlands, increased areas of dead zone in the Gulf, people and sea life sick and dying, and 11 men blown to pieces, wives with no spouse, kids with no dad and grandpa, families with no son and brother, because of BP's desire to hasten the work being done on the Deepwater Horizon.

I have to ask myself "Is life worth so little?" "Who are we as people, if we let greed succeed?"

Fact is that the US is an oil dependent country; try as we may to pretend it isn't so, we are. We must continue to demand safe drilling practices and hold those drill safely accountable.

Thanks for joining this discussion.

Was out in the Gulf last week. Pulled up some trout near the shallow rigs and some solid reds in the marsh. They were all healthy as a horse. Cooked them up that day. Delicious.

The oil rigs create great reefs because aquatic plants grow on the structure, which attracts smaller animal life, which attracts fish (which attracts sharks). Has nothing to do with anything else.

Saw a couple pods of dolphin swimming around on the ride in. Seemed happy and healthy to me. The marsh islands were full of bird racket and the normal stink of bird poo as well.

Sorry, I get that the media puts all this stuff out there, and there may be something to it, but I'll believe my own eyes, nose, ears, and taste buds for the time being.

If you won't believe me or the few media who are bold enough to print what is going on, perhaps you'll believe a doctor? Just because you are not seeing it in the area you are in doesn't make it not real elsewhere in the Gulf.


Also speaking at the teach-in was Dr. Mike Robichaux, a Raceland-based physician and former Louisiana state senator, who said “I’m seeing people really sick from the spill, with headaches, abdominal cramps, fatigue and memory loss.” He likened those ailments to the Gulf War Syn­drome, and said few veterans who suffered serious symptoms from that 1991 conflict in Iraq and Kuwait have recovered.

I don't believe there is no truth at all to it. Just that it is obviously overblown by alarmists. The very worst thing that can be done is to discourage more drilling out there. It is Louisiana's only chance to get from under the thumb of the federal government. If someone is legitimately sick from the oil/corexit, they should be compensated. There are dead animals all the time due to different reasons, mostly naturally occurring ones. There is a good chance the oil/corexit has an occasional effect. There are certainly still affected areas here and there.
My issue is that posters such as yourself portray the Gulf as to be a dead zone flled with chemicals, oil and dead animals. You are like the media when they cover Hurricanes and shoot video of areas outside the levee system and portray that as the greater reality for New Orleans. It is fake, alarmist hype.
Again, do I believe some poster on ATS and his obviously propagandistic links or do I believe my own dang eyes, nose, ears, and taste buds?

I know people from Raceland and have yet to hear any similar stories. It aint that big a town.

Bit of a no brainer, I'm afraid. Going fishing this weekend weather permitting. And will hopefully continue to do so continuously until winter. I bet you a million dollars I will still be here a year from now, posting on ATS, healthy and (hopefully) happy.
Hopefully the trout are running this weekend.

Such a travesty. I find it mind boggling that BP has yet to pay any medical for the people left behind to clean up their mess. Unfortunately it's a disaster that will have a significant impact for years to come. My heart goes out to all people and wildlife who have paid the price for corporate greed.

Count your lucky stars that you were not one of the 11 killed or 6 injured. Be thankful you are not sick and have an overload of toxins in your body. If you know people from Raceland than you should know Dr. Mike and know he is a well known Ear, Nose and Throat specialist. He is not some "quack" doctor.

I am not an alarmist but I am a truth seeker. Sometimes the truth is not what we really want to see or hear, especially if it may affect our income.










Here is another article about workers being ill. Surely they all can't be making this up?

Here's an article regarding a correlation with dead dolphins and the BP spill.

Dead dolphins & BP spill


Here is a leak to a new thread I started -the Deepwater Horizon Macondo Well appears to be leaking oil again.
This may be contributing to the fact that people keep finding tar balls washing up om the beaches.

Thanks. Will look in to it.


Not sure about Orange "goo" but
Feinberg is treating the victims of the Gulf spill differently than those of 9/11 and agent orange.




(Special from Facing South) – Before President Obama appointed him to administer the $20 billion compensation fund for the 2010 BP oil disaster, Kenneth Feinberg ran two other disaster-related funds. One was for Vietnam veterans sickened by exposure to the toxic herbicide Agent Orange. The other was for victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including those made ill by pollution from the collapse and burning of the Twin Towers.






Feinberg didn’t require medical proof of causation—
and now he is....what a surprise!

I am from Cut Off, LA which is about 35 miles north of Grand Isle. I was on the beach the weekend of July 23rd and did not see any oil whatsoever. The beach was full of people swimming, crabbing, fishing, etc. We caught 2 ice chests of crabs which we ate that night with no problems. We've eaten shrimp and fish caught in and along the coast, no problems. (By the way, 2 ice chests of crabs is plenty, meaning the population is not suffering. Everyone around us were also catching as much as they wanted).

As far as people getting sick, I know several people who worked for months during the clean up efforts and I do not know a single person or even heard of a single person who has gotten sick. Cut Off has a population of about 5,500 people. It's a very small town, just like the other towns between Cut Off and Grand Isle. My point being that there are no secrets in small towns. If there were hundreds, or even dozens of people sick, it would be the talk of the town. I have heard no such talk.

As far as the video of the guy on the beach, I have my doubts. I can assure you he is not from south Louisiana (our accents are unmistakable). The beaches of Louisiana are not like other beaches. We don't have prestine, white sand (due to the mud and silt which flows down the Mississippi River then gets pushed west by currents). A lot of places are just a mixture of sand and mud, which is what I think is in his video. It is was oil, it would have created a sheen when he disturbed it.

As stated early, the best thing the government can do for the residents of south Louisiana is to stop hindering offshore drilling. You want stats for lost jobs? I work for an offshore construction company. Since the BP disaster, we have layed off somewhere in the neighborhood of 35% of our onshore work force. And we're just one company. A big company at that, that has the cash to wait it out. Smaller companies are on the verge of shutting down completely.
Don't think the government is causing these problems? Our CEO recently said we will begin exploring the offshore construction market of west Africa as it is more politcally stable than the US!!!
