Shot by Robert M. Young and Edward James Olmos on a trip to the heart of the oil spill in the Gulf. Edited by Stephen Cohen.

Robert Young and I jumped on a plane and went to the Gulf of Mexico just to lend our support by documenting what we saw...

Well, the people that we met took up all of our time. It was brutal! I was not ready for the human aspect because no one had prepared me for it.

I thought they would be angry. They are devastated.
Take a look at this video and see for yourself. People are afraid to talk and you will learn why watching this...

Please pass it on, recommend it.

If you feel like doing something, just go down there (anywhere on the Gulf) and support by spending time and energy in the region.

They need our support. Thank you for Caring.
Edward James Olmos

You know those commercials by BP lately where they talk about how BP is working so hard to clean up the gulf? It's sick because they are trying so hard to gloss over the fact that they caused the mess to begin with. Bloody hypocrits.
@busguy100 or maybe you are just really, really naive and enjoy swallowing all the crap that gets fed to you by main stream media...and yes they pay people to keep up their "rep" and control bad press...they've been doing for years...really it's chump change compared to the trouble it saves them in the long run

My fat friend was able to make the hottest stripper there is in my town fall in love with him because he used the Cupid Love System (Google it). It’s bad but I wish I became pleased for him but I wish a beautiful individual would fall for me. I’m seriously jealous. Does that make me a bad human being?
thats why canada doesnt allow americans to come in the arctic ocean you arnt trustworthy. 
Thanks for sharing and caring, and it's not just BP. It's a shame no matter who is doing it, it seems like everything is geared toward disaster?
good that people like you show these infos ! Amazing and what a concurrence as I just saw before this video another from PeterVamos1 where he played on his piano in remember of this tragedy. Keep it up your good work. Best - Karen
4:35 -- BSG!!!
This is the situation - they don't want the people to clean it up or free... They want the tax payers to pay for it, so they can hire / outsource a clean up team, then "over bill" the government (jut like the "corporate forces" in Iraq are doing). It's a legal way of the elite stealing money from the lower classes, via taxes. Worst part is, the government is in on it. Every disaster is an opportunity to steal from the lower classes. That's the way it works. There needs to be a revolution.
