Gulf Oil Spill Vigil Tonight in Brooklyn - Tuesday, June 8

MoveOn members are gathering today, the 50th day since the start of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, to "stand in solidarity with those affected by the BP disaster and call for an end to America's addiction to oil."

The vigil takes place at Garfield Place and Prospect Park West at 7 p.m.

The message from MoveOn says: "The initiative the President has taken to stop this massive catastrophe in the Gulf is non-existent. Right now as you read this invite the US Coast Guard is literally standing guard against US citizens to protect BP. This is an outrage . . . We need to make ourselves heard and demand our Government stop our dependence on fossil fuels."
