General Honore calls Louisiana to Earth Day Rally to remind nation about BP Disaster and outstanding victim needs
A free and public rally at New Orleans’ Duncan Plaza on Saturday, April 21, 11 a.m. will utilize Earth Day as an opportunity to memorialize the BP Gulf Oil Disaster of 2010 and call attention to the tens of thousands of health victims from the toxic spill who are still impacted.
The rally at Duncan Plaza, 1300 Perdido Street in downtown New Orleans, will feature General Russel Honore, fishermen, BP Disaster Cleanup Workers, members of the Green Army and like-minded ecology groups, as well as the families of impacted Gulf Coast residents who have died or been harmed by the toxic chemical Gulf spill caused by the failure of the BP Deepwater Horizon. The Hot 8 Brass Band are also special guests.
This is the 8thanniversary of the BP disaster in the Gulf, and a recentGarretson Resolution Group Status Report(February 2018) and Justice for BP Health Victimsonline site note:
“The reality is many outside our region have forgotten about this disaster. As noted in the 2018 report the Plaintiff Steering Committee walked away with $700 million; the Claims Administrator, in charge of processing the first round of payments to victims, walked away with $155 million. The total paid to ALL victims? $60 million,” said Rally Organizer Jonathan Henderson. He said the General and his organization are turning in at least 20,000 petitions in support of health victims to the federal court located in New Orleans on April 20.
“My anger and focus on this miscarriage of justice will not end. While I speak out on every anniversary, this one is particularly urgent because the grave injustices which persist are adding up for our cleanup workers and our residents,” said the General.
