Fisherman from the Gulf of Mexico Call to the World for Help

The 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico continues to get worse, while U.S. government is busy fighting wars, rebuilding the countries they destroy the Gulf of Mexico is on its way to becoming the dead gulf.
Fisherman are calling on the world
to help in anyway they can. Money, voice, letter, anything that can help make a difference to make a change in what is happening.
Al Walker a fishing boat captain in Louisiana has a mission to tell the world the truth about what is really happening in the Gulf of Mexico. Al shows the world the tar balls are still in the water, oil saturated mangroves, and a beds of oysters saturated with oil. Walker wants to show the world that the Gulf clean up effort is being overlooked and the end result will be the closing of his business, along with fishing in the Gulf.
Most of mainstream media has kept quiet about the spill and the U.S. government reopened the gulf for more oil exploration. BP is on track to win 11 new leases.The selling off of the Gulf of Mexico to the highest bidder along with BP, include 20 companies, Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell and Anadarko Petroleum, are some who have submitted winning bids. Conocophillips was the most active, bidding on 97 leases and submitting top bids on 75, including one it offered $103 million for.
In April of 2012 Associated Press did a report on the fish from the gulf that were caught and shown to have black streaks, sores, and parasites that have never been seen before. The University of South Florida's Marine biology department is studying the effects of the oil spill on the Gulf. Steve Murawski a professor at USF suggested that with all the oil drilling in the gulf, that BP may not be alone in the contribution of its destruction.
Darryl Felder a biologist who has studied crustaceans for decades explains that the food chain is being disrupted by the die off of crustaceans in mass numbers. Many questions that have been addressed to the government go unanswered. A recent report by journalist Dahr Jamail who has been reporting on the Gulf of Mexico spill since it occurred went looking for answers to questions about the spill that happened two years ago. He went to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to get answers. Neither government agency would comment and referred Jamil to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) which also declined to comment.
Louisiana fisherwoman Diane Wilson has been protesting around the world about the BP atrocity in the Gulf of Mexico. In 2011 at BP’s Annual General Meeting in London, just days before the first anniversary of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, with oil smeared on her body Diane was there protesting.
At BP's 2012 annual meeting the Gulf oil spill protesters came once again with charges that BP is cutting corners to clean up, trying to spend as little on clean up, but continues to spend billions to sour the earths surface for oil and gas. While executives of BP receive millions annually in salaries, BP is doing its best to give as little as possible to the people of the Gulf that have lost their businesses, health, and a way to make a living.
Oil first, people last, as the greed for Satan's blood continues.......
