FISHERMEN FORCED TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY IF CATCH IS CONTAMINATED BY OIL OR COREXIT - BP RELEASED FROM ALL LIABILITY
Fisherman Forced To Sign Waiver Making Them and NOT BP Liable For Contaminated BP Gulf Oil Spill Seafood

We knew BP was going to get out of it! The FED's are forcing fishermen in the gulf to sign a waiver that releases BP from ALL liability if the catch is contaminated. AND...the fishermen personally have to accept ALL liability if their catch is poisoned from the spill or the corexit!

Re: FISHERMEN FORCED TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY IF CATCH IS CONTAMINATED BY OIL OR COREXIT - BP RELEASED FROM ALL LIABILITY
Based on the interview...basically what's happening is the Feds are releasing the waters to public fishing...even though they KNOW it's dangerous and heavily poluted by the corexit and oil. Scientists and fishermen who are reporting that their catches are covered in oil and that heavy amounts of contaminates are still in the water...are being told to shut up. Research organizations are being put out of business and places are being forced under contract by the feds to submit to BP's media rules, which include...no answering the feds in court proceedings unless BP allows it.

And now...on top of all that crap, the Feds are providing one more way for BP to be released from liability by forcing the small business man fishermen to take on ALL responsibility if his or her catch if contaminated from the BP oil spill or the corexit used to half ass clean it up.

And here we sit...dumbfounded

I'm a lawyer by training, so I think I'm seeing an endgame here.

BP's claims are offset by "income that was reasonably available."

Government opens fishing grounds. This is a gambit - win-win for BP, lose-lose for the fishermen.

Choice A - Commercial fishermen won't sign waivers and won't fish if the seafood is contaminated. BP will then offset their claims by the amount they "reasonably would have earned" had they signed the waivers and begun fishing. The fishermen lose money because they "could" have fished the newly opened waters.

Choice B - Commercial fishermen sign the waivers and fish and sell contaminated fish, destroying their careers because no one will eat Gulf seafood for years. BP's waiver gets BP off the hook for this loss of income.

This is a sick game that BP is playing and the Feds obviously have their back. Members of Congress from those Gulf districts must fight back. In order for them to do that, residents of Gulf districts need to make a stink about this.

The ONLY hope is that the waivers will be invalidated because the fisherman are not given a choice but to sign them.

Clapping for BP and their amazingly easy job of fucking over the gulf residents (who apparently just bend over for it or something).

In the OLDEN DAYS the southerners would have dealt with this like MEN.

There are so many fails by BP and the Feds for the American people. All I can be thankful for is that it didn't happen in my neighborhood. There are "Save haiti" and "Help the tsunami" and "Help pakistan" money grabbers everywhere. But...what about helping the people of the gulf? How come mexico hasn't said anything about their people? About their industry? About their people dying from contaminants?

Is it all propoganda? Would the average mexican be "scared" the way the average American is?

That's interesting since the oil wouldn't BE there, if BP wasn't a fuck up. I wouldn't sign it and class action suit them, and kill a few corrupt pig judges on my down time too.

I feel that Ed (TV) is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is now a moral good in this country. It's its own virtue.
