It’s time. Join us Monday on the steps of the Hale Boggs U.S. Courthouse as the world turns its attention to New Orleans for the first day of the BP trial.

Restore the Mississippi River Delta has put out a call to action to Rally to Make BP Pay!

What: Rally to Hold BP Accountable
When: Monday, February 25 6:45AM – 7:45 AM (courthouse doors open at 7 AM)
Where: 500 Poydras Street New Orleans – in front of the Hale Boggs Federal Building



Nearly three years after the BP oil disaster, the question around BP’s accountability may soon come to a close. The Feb. 25th civil trial date is upon us and BP and the U.S. Dept. of Justice will either reach a settlement or go to trial. We’re going to be on the steps of the courthouse Monday morning to send the message that BP must be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law for one of our nation’s largest environmental disasters. This is a huge moment for the Gulf and our last, best opportunity for accountability! Be there!


Details: Rain or shine. Trial or no trial. WEAR BLACK (OR DARK COLORS). We will have #makeBPpay signs for folks to hold. Donuts and coffee will be on hand!
