When I was invited to attend Project Gulf Impact’s conference at Seattle University I jumped at the opportunity. Not only was I able to finally meet PGI, I was able to speak to numerous fisherman who have literally had their lives destroyed by BP and their toxic dispersant. Little did I know that the event was actually put together by student activists at the university who were so deeply touched by the disaster that they invited PGI to speak at their school.
While I was touched by all the speakers, one stood out in particular. No human being should have to go through what this man and thousands of others have been put through at the hands of an international oil company.
This mans 10 year old child has been sickened by Corexit while at the same time the corporate media has declared the disaster over. This is happening in our own backyards yet the shill media continues to downplay the health impacts caused by over 2 million gallons of toxic dispersant.
