Compensation Delayed Is Compensation Denied

Jun 14, 2010

BP promises it will compensate everyone who suffers a loss related to the blowout at their oil well in the Gulf of Mexico.

Another fat lie!

Compensation means NOW! Many thousands of people have lost their livelihood already. Start paying them NOW with no limit on BP liability!

People’s jobs and little businesses around the Gulf, its bayous and rivers are being destroyed; their homes and lands are being made unusable. Start paying them NOW!

People all along the Gulf can’t go fishing or swimming on a day off, or go for a walk or a picnic at their usual places near the water. Start paying them NOW–with no limit on BP liability!

Compensation promised for sometime in the future is not compensation at all. BP should start paying NOW!
