Gulf Coast shrimper-turned-environmental activist Diane Wilson was arrested on Thursday, April 14th in London while protesting outside the BP annual general meeting.
In a press statement, Diane said, “My community is dead. We’ve worked five generations there and now we’ve got a dead community . . . I am here to articulate the anger of thousands of Gulf Coast residents whose lives and livelihoods have been destroyed while the BP board continues to prosper.”
