We suggest playing all three videos at the same time.
“Not only was it within BP's power to prevent the tragedy, it was its responsibility.” Assistant U.S. Attorney Mike Underhill.
BP Trial (phase 1); Civil Court of New Orleans
(COURT CALLED TO ORDER)
THE DEPUTY CLERK: All rise.
THE COURT: Good morning, everyone.
VOICES: Good morning, your Honor.
THE COURT: Please be seated.
LIBERATE TATE: On the third anniversary of the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill and to mark the end of phase one of the BP trial in the Civil Court of New Orleans, we LIBERATE TATE stand witness to the ongoing trial of BP with a performance at TATE MODERN in London.
For five days we will whisper extracts from the court transcripts; damning reports, objections, evidence, accountability and risk throughout the BP sponsored TATE gallery spaces. Broadcasting in undertones, our hushed articulation of dissent will be smuggled out, via the airwaves, to reach a global online audience.
As TATE continues to accept money from a criminally-convicted corporation we insistently ask: How much more environmental, societal and climate damage does BP need to do for TATE to forego its sponsor? When will TATE put their sponsor on the stand?
