FUNERAL FOR THE GULF OF MEXICO
PRESS RELEASE: FUNERAL FOR THE GULF OF MEXICO
WHAT: Funeral service and procession for Gulf of Mexico, recently murdered by BP, Transocean and Halliburton under suspicious circumstances. Several government agencies appear to have been accomplices after the fact. Signs and costumes are requested in honor of the deceased, who is survived by her ailing siblings, Mississippi River and Caribbean Sea.
WHEN: From 1:00 t0 4:00 on Wednesday, February 29, 2012, on the day designated by Occupy Portland for the nation to demand democratic government once again. The funeral procession is Occupy NOLA’s participation in this demand.
WHERE: Starting at BP headquarters, 1250 Poydras, the funeral procession carries the coffin seven blocks to the Federal Building, 500 Poydras. Elegies will be pronounced at both sites.
WHY: On February 27, 2012, only five days after Mardi Gras, the most complex trial ever in New Orleans is supposed to begin, and BP, Transocean and Halliburton will hopefully be called into court for judgment on their various roles in the most disastrous industrial incident the State of Louisiana has ever known.
It was an incident because it was not an accident. The corporate principle of profit before people led to shortcuts and errors in exploration that killed eleven in the explosion and caused several subsequent deaths as a consequence of chemical poisoning, while leaving thousands ill and perhaps dying.
So come, wear your costumes, carry your signs, and mourn! For further information, contact Elizabeth Cook (firstname.lastname@example.org or 504.231.8789) or Mike Howells (email@example.com or 504.5870080) or me.
