START A PETITION

Focus:Corporate Responsibility
Action Request:Petition
Location:United States

The United States is not the only gulf nation.  Mexico and Cuba among others will also feel the effects of millions and millions of gallons of oil spilled into the gulf, killing wildlife and ruining the livelihoods of men and women who work the waters for their wages.

President Obama's success in creating a $20 billion dollar fund to aid American citizens to cope with this tragedy is certainly an achievement, but it does not encompass the entire picture.  BP, whose funds are covering damages along the American gulf coast, should be held accountable for any oil that washes up on the shores of other gulf nations as well.  This is not a American problem, but an international tragedy, and BP should pay for its negligence regardless of international borders.
