More and more citizens are testifying on radio and video against the giant cover-up going on in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Gulf Coast. Despite slick BP TV ads, sanitized beach and city government websites and now glossy travel magazine articles extolling Gulf tourism, telling us that the air is fine, seafood is fine, the water is fine, many people living and working in and along the Gulf know better.

In fact, to quote from The Montgomery Advertiser :

"A new poll of residents in southern Mobile County has found that the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico left about one-third with a desire to leave.

The survey, conducted by the University of South Alabama's polling group, also found that 71 percent of those responding believe the oil spill caused permanent ecological damage to the Gulf. And 38 percent disagreed with the statement that seafood from spill-affected areas is safe to eat." (source)

Some Gulf Coast residents, fearful or depressed, are staying silent, others, like those you are about to see in these videos below, are brave enough to speak out. These videos interview either individuals who worked with BP or interact with the Gulf regularly. The next to the last three videos are actually three segments of one podcast by a couple who were BP workers who have been poisoned by Corexit spraying, and the last one is another by a BP worker that has really been making the rounds on the Internet.
