Fishers gather to Commemorate Anniversary

On the Anniversary of the explosion at the Deepwater Horizon that marked the beginning of the BP Drilling Disaster, fishers and advocates gathered in Plaquemines Parish to send the message that recovery for them and their communities is still a long way away.

Among those at the gathering were Byron Encalade, president of the Louisiana Oystermen Association; May Nguyen, Oil Spill Social Justice Strategist with the Mary Queen of Vietnam Community Development Corporation; George Barisich, president of the United Commercial Fisherman's Association, and Monique Harden and Nathalie Walker of Advocates for Environmental Human Rights.
