The “Seize BP” Demand & Pres. Obama’s Response

Featured guest speaker:
Attorney, Carl Messineo

Friday, June 18 at 7:00 p.m.

Justice Center

Shaw/Howard University Metro
yellow/green line

Noted civil rights attorney and Seize BP spokesperson Carl Messineo will analyze the political, legal and economic consequences of the Obama Administration’s response to the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster.

This special forum offers a unique opportunity to hear a penetrating analysis of the deeper issues hidden beneath the headlines and the public relations propaganda of BP and the federal government.

Messineo and the Seize BP movement present the case for the expansion of a mass grassroots movement for justice against BP, Big Oil and a government policy that has put corporate super-profits before the needs of working families and the environment.
