BREAKING: Six Gulf Coast residents were arrested this morning inside BP’s Houston headquarters ahead of the upcoming five-year anniversary of the biggest marine oil disaster in history.

"The truth is that the oil is still here, and so are we. And we will not let these foreign invaders destroy us. We are the Gulf Coast – every grass, every turtle and dolphin, every fisher folk, every beach, every single one. We, like the Earth herself, have a right to live. We have a right to thrive. Anyone who keeps us from that is an enemy to us. This is our battle. This is everyone's battle. And we will not yield.” - Cherri Foytlin (banner "Never Again: No Sacrifice Zones")
