What can we learn from the Gulf oil disaster?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with Exxon Valdez survivor and marine biologist Riki Ott and Texas shrimper-turned-activist Diane Wilson. They've been helping workers in the Gulf organize to defend the environment, their jobs, and their own health. How has the BP catastrophe changed your view of the environment, our economy, and our democracy? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at Has this oil spill brought us to a crossroads? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Riki Ott, marine biologist and author of Not One Drop: Betrayal and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill

Diane Wilson, former Texas shrimp boat captain and author of An Unreasonable Woman: A True Story of Shrimpers, Politicos, Polluters, and the Fight for Seadrift, Texas

In 1989 Exxon told the cleanup workers the same story, that the crude oil is not toxic. Some of us are living proof of the toxic exposure, and many others have died. Please view the YouTube video, and help get the message to Gulf residents, BP crude oil cleanup workers, and President Obama. Respirators need to be supplied to oil cleanup crews.
Thank you.
