BP(British Petroleum) Rally & Protest in Chicago Area on Thursday June 10, 2010

1 post / 0 new

Many of us are concerned about the BP Oil Spill and this is an opportunity to do something. The following information is regarding a rally in the south suburbs of Chicago. It is a bi-partisian rally for all concerned. Remember, the spill affects us in Chicago too. Our tax dollars, our seafood, our birds that fly south for the winter(will they come back next year?), the national employment rate and more.

Rally Information, and link to sign-up:

NO BIG OIL BAILOUT RALLY in Bolingbrook, Illinois June 10 at 6 pm. It will be near the intersection of I-355 and Boughton Rd. Meet 1 block west of I-355 on the south side of Boughton Rd. Park in the Macy's lot.
We're demanding Rep. Judy Biggert return the money she took from BP and ask her to support legislation preventing a taxpayer bailout of BP. We want BP to pay for ALL damages associated with the oil spill.

We'll hear from a speaker from the Sierra Club, and others.

BRING A SIGN.

BRING A FRIEND.

We need a BIG crowd to send a BIG message to our Congresspeople that they are in DC to represent us-- not BIG OIL.
