As the oil continues to spill into the Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Coast shrimpers and fisherpeople aren't just taking time off. They've already filed a class action lawsuit against British Petroleum, owners of the rig that's polluting their waters and killing their source of income (not to mention a major source of seafood for most of the country). Mike Papantonio, who you may know as the host of Ring of Fire on the radio, is also the attorney representing the shrimpers, and he joins us via Skype from Florida to give us the latest on the case. GRITtv with Laura Flanders brings participatory democracy onto your computer screen and into your living room, bridging the gap between audience and advocates.
