More than fifty days after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, Halliburton in New Orleans finds itself allowed to engage in business as usual in the major American city closest to the oil spill. The Halliburton office on Canal Street in the CBD has not, so far, been the scene of even a token attempt to put the spotlight on the pivotal role that this company has played in helping manufacture the worst oil spill in U.S. history. Halliburton was entrusted with the task of ensuring that the BOP of the Deepwater Horizon rig was sealed. Now faulty sealing of the Deepwater Horizon’s BOP is widely assumed to have been a major contributing factor to April 20th explosion that unleashed the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. And this is exactly the type of work that allows Halliburton to profit enormously from oil industry activity in the Gulf.

Staging a very public protest at the site of the Halliburton office in the CBD sends the message to Halliburton, BP and the government that people in New Orleans are willing to directly confront, albeit peacefully, the worst corporate predators in our midsts. That we are pulling the welcome mat away from the corporate and political predators whose wretched handling of the crisis is resulting in ever greater encroachments on our welfare and the welfare of our neighbors. We are no longer willing to allow our righteous and healthy indignation to be funneled exclusively into dead-end corporate and government staged “public meetings” that are designed to imbue us with a feeling of powerlessness.

JUNE 18, 2019
Bring signs, chants, friends and, most importantly, yourself.

We demand:
1. Full compensation for all losing income and livelihood from the
2. Full healthcare services to those suffering health effects of the spill.
3. Stop oil drilling in the Gulf.
4. Big oil & government must pay for the resolution of the crisis.
5. A public works program that pays a living wage and rehabilitates the
areas of the Gulf Coast region harmed by the spill.
