Following on the massive sit-in at the Department of the Interior on Monday, activists in Washington DC joined collectives from around the country to take action today for the Rising Tide Day of Action against Extraction.
The DC residents tied a banner across the doors of the Government Affairs offices of British Petroleum in DC to send them a message, on the anniversary of the start of the Gulf disaster, that corporate polluters will be held accountable.
"BP is guilty of poisoning the Gulf and its communities. It is time for justice," said one of the activists. "The extraction of fossil fuels is killing communities and our planet. It must end," added another.
