Another Downtown Seize BP Protest This Evening

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Jun 3, 2010 7:30PM

Now that BP's "top kill" effort has failed and oil continues to gush into the Gulf of Mexico, the spill already hitting Mississippi and Alabama shores and creeping towards Florida, anger over the continuing catastrophe continues to grow. The group Seize BP is hoping to, well, seize the growing anti-BP sentiment with the Seize BP Week of Action which kicks off tonight with protests around the country, including right here in Chicago. The protest gets underway at 5 p.m. at BP's Chicago office, located at the corner of Michigan and Randolph. The last Seize BP protest in Chicago was sparsely attended so the organizers hope more recent developments up the attendance.
