It’s time to take to the streets and demand the immediate seizure of BP’s assets. In cities and towns around the country, people will take to the streets on Wednesday, May 12 at BP offices and other locations around the country. In New York City, we are going to rally in front of the JP Morgan Chase World Headquarters. It owns close to 30% of BP's public stock.

200,000 gallons of oil a day, or more, are gushing into the Gulf of Mexico with the flow of oil growing. The poisonous devastation to human beings, wildlife, natural habitat and fragile ecosystems will go on for decades. It constitutes an act of environmental violence, the consequences of which will be catastrophic.

BP oil rigThe government of the United States must seize BP and freeze its assets, and place those funds in trust to begin providing immediate relief to the working people throughout the Gulf states whose jobs, communities, homes and businesses are being harmed or destroyed by the criminally negligent actions of the CEO, Board of Directors and senior management of BP.

The response to the Seize BP campaign has been tremendous. In the first day alone, thousands of people have signed the petition supporting the seizure of BP's assets to provide comprehensive compensation and relief for all affected people and for cleaning up the environment. Let's get tens of thousands to sign the petition in the coming days.

As we predicted, BP executives are now hedging and refusing to commit to pay for all damages caused by their reckless and criminal action.

Join us in demanding that the government seize BP’s assets now for their criminal negligence and begin providing immediate relief for the immense suffering and harm they have caused.
