MUMIA ABU-JAMAL ON BRITISH PETROLEUM

BEFORE BP

BP didn't begin as BP. Indeed, it didn't begin as British Petroleum.

In 1908, it was known as the Anglo-Persian Oil Company, and it exploited Iran's natural resources and labor ruthlessly. Majority shares of the company were owned by the British government, and Iran offered a rich yield for APOC.

In 1947 for example, the company pulled in after-tax profits of 40 million, while Iran received a mere 7 million.

The average Iranian worker, housed in huts assembled of rusted, hammered oil cans, lived in desolate oil towns, and earned about 50 cents a day.

One observer from Iran's Petroleum Institute described one such shanty town, Kaghazabad (Farsi for 'Paper City') as a place where "in every crevice hung the foul sulfurous stench of burning oil." Instead of streets, narrow alleyways existed, which the describer called "an emporium for rats." He said the town was so desolate that there was no single tree.

Is there any wonder that the government of Mohammed Mossadegh wanted to nationalize the country's oil wealth -- or that the CIA (and MI-5 -British Intelligence) assured his ouster, and imposed the dictator, the Shah?

BP plundered the country, making money, hand over fist.

Now, they are plundering American natural resources --its southern shorelines, and its matchless fishing and shrimping grounds -- and the chickens have indeed, come home to roost.

Clean-Energy Future.

The BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast is the worst environmental disaster of its kind in our nation's history. On Monday, June 14, I returned to the region, reviewed our efforts and met with families and business owners affected by the catastrophe.

We are working to hold BP accountable for the damage to the lands and the livelihoods of the Gulf Coast, and we are taking strong precautions to make certain a spill like this never happens again.

But our work will not end with this crisis. That's one of the reasons why last week I invited lawmakers from both parties to join me at the White House to discuss what it will take to move forward on legislation to promote a new economy powered by green jobs, combat climate change, and end our dependence on foreign oil.

Today, we consume more than 20 percent of the world's oil, but have less than two percent of the world's oil reserves. Beyond the risks inherent in drilling four miles beneath the surface of the Earth, our dependence on oil means that we will continue to send billions of dollars of our hard-earned wealth to other countries every month -- including many in dangerous and unstable regions.

In other words, our continued dependence on fossil fuels will jeopardize our national security. It will smother our planet. And it will continue to put our economy and our environment at risk. We cannot delay any longer, and that is why I am asking for your help.

Please stand with me today in backing clean energy. Adding your name will help Organizing for America create a powerful, public display of support for making this change happen.

The time has come, once and for all, for this nation to fully embrace a new future. That means continuing our unprecedented effort to make everything -- from our homes and businesses to our cars and trucks -- more energy-efficient. It means rolling back billions of dollars of tax breaks to oil companies so we can prioritize investments in clean energy research and development.

Many businesses support this agenda because shifting to clean energy creates opportunities for entrepreneurship. This is how we will reinvent our economy -- and create new companies and new jobs all across the country.

There will be transition costs and a time of adjustment. But if we refuse to heed the warnings from the disaster in the Gulf -- we will have missed our best chance to seize the clean-energy future we know America needs to thrive in the years and decades to come.

The House of Representatives has already passed a comprehensive energy and climate bill, and there is currently a plan in the Senate -- a plan that was developed with ideas from Democrats and Republicans -- that would achieve the same goal. But this is an issue that Washington has long ignored in favor of protecting the status quo.

So I'm asking for your help today to show that the American people are ready for a clean-energy future.

Please add your name to mine:

Stand with Me for A Clean Energy Future

Thank you,

President Barack Obama
