As oil continues to gush into the Gulf of Mexico, the result of the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion April 20, it seems appropriate to post my latest article for the warehouse. It’s based on an interview with Antonia Juhasz, and discusses the stranglehold the oil industry has had on American policy thanks to its enormous wealth and lobbying/legal activities. Scarcely a couple of weeks after I interviewed Juhasz, she was arrested while protesting at a Chevron stakeholders meeting and thrown into jail. You can find more about that here at Democracy Now.
