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.
