BREAKING: Six Arrested at BP Headquarters 5 Years After Gulf Oil Disaster

Houston, TX - Six Gulf coast residents were arrested this morning inside the main entrance to BP’s Houston headquarters ahead of the upcoming five-year anniversary of the biggest marine oil disaster in history. On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon disaster killed eleven workers and began spewing 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico over 87 days. Today’s action is the first of many demonstrations planned across the Gulf South leading up to the April 20. This includes planned protests on April 16 outside BP’s annual shareholder meeting in London.
