Rally against BP!

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Congress needs to pass the Big Oil Bailout Prevention Act, which would eliminate the cap on BP’s liability—and also to pass campaign finance and ethics reforms to stop big corporations from buying influence and making the kind of bad policies that led to this disaster.

Here’s the event description:

Come to Union Square on June 10 to send a message to Congress and the Obama Administration: Your job is to work for the public interest, not Big Oil’s interests! And make sure that BP pays for every dollar of damage it has caused. We will have speakers, signs, and even a Toxic Lemonade Stand — so we can all see what will happen if Big Oil/Big Business continues buying our politicians. Join us to press our national and state officials for reforms to save our land, water, future, and democracy.

Look for us in the Southwest section of Union Square Park. You can take subways L, N, R, Q, W, 4, 5, 6.

Call your Senators! We want clean air!

T-Shirts to help clean the Gulf

Shirt by Weebeetwees. Available on

From Weebeetees:

The devastation that the BP oil ‘spill’ is causing on the ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico is tragic. Every day 5,000 barrels of oil are gushing into our waters with no end in sight. With your purchase of the Anti BeePee Tee, all proceeds will go directly to organizations that are spearheading the clean up efforts along the Gulf Coast. Weebeetees’ goal is to raise $10,000 in funds to help correct this massive disaster. With each sale we are closer to our goal of 1000 strong against BP; save a turtle, buy a shirt.

The front says: BP filling the Gulf
and the back says: I’m cleaning it up
