Video: Protesting BP in Baltimore, MD

Protesting BP in Baltimore, MD from William Hughes on Vimeo.

On Sunday afternoon, May 16, 2010, an ad hoc group of concerned activists picketed a BP, (British Petroleum), gas station, located at the intersection of 33rd Street and Greenmount Ave, in Baltimore, MD. They expressed their outrage at BP for the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, lax government regulations of the industry, and strongly opposed allowing any more off-shore drilling permits.

Max, the guy who spoke at the start of the video, and the woman who spoke after him inspire me to say that these two people are examples of folks who should run for Comgress, and this might be true about everyone who spoke in the video.

Ralph Nader was jailed a few weeks ago? I thought the guy with the mic. said that Ralph had been jailed a few weeks ago and if this is true, then why did this happen? Did he criticize the gov't for not acting correctly about the oil spill and the gov't was so displeased with this that it jailed him for it?
