“BP’s Complicity in Genocide & Reconstituting Corporatetocracy in MesoAmerica”
Patty Ferguson-Bohnee (Pointe-au-Chien), Director, Indian Legal Clinic in Tempe, AZ and an Associate Clinical Professor of Law at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.
As we reach day 84 of the largest human-made oil spill in American History in the Gulf of Mexico, what impact is this having on Indigenous Nations along the gulf coast? Could they be forced to relocate, what has been British Petroleum's response to working with Indigenous Nations, and could BP be complicit in the genocide of Indigenous Nations who have traditionally lived along the Gulf of Mexico since time immemorial? Join us for an exclusive interview Patty Ferguson as she answers some of these very questions.
