A 20-city protest was staged Wednesday to condemn BP Oil and the growing environmental disaster caused by that massive oil spill.
The so-called "Seize BP National Day of Action" was at the "eco-friendly" BP gas station on Olympic Boulevard.in West Los Angeles.
The demonstrators are calling on the government to seize BP assets to pay for all the damages and losses caused by the spill.
"We're calling for a federal government seizure of BP's assests to pay for all the environmental damge, personal losses and untold consequences of their oil spill," said Ian Thompson, a spokesman for the group Answer Coaliton.
More than 200,000 gallons of oil a day continues to spew into the Gulf of Mexico.
