New York, NY - May 28 2010 - Several hundred protesters shut down the BP gas station, at Houston and Lafayette Streets, for several hours in protest of the April 20th 2010 deephole explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, which resulted eleven deaths and the worst oil spill catastrophe in US history. Groups including Times Up and Code Pink are calling accountability, for the company to improve its safety record, an end to off shore drilling, and expanded use of alternative energy sources.
