Safety At Offshore Drilling Units

Opinion BriefEmail
Is BP guilty of manslaughter?
Eleven workers were killed in the 2010 Gulf explosion that led to a devastating oil spill. Now federal prosecutors are considering manslaughter charges for BP managersposted on March 30, 2011, at 12:38 PM

Some BP managers may reportedly be charged with manslaughter over the disaster, which killed 11 workers.

Almost a year after an oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico caused the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history, federal prosecutors are considering legal charges. Eleven workers were killed when the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20 last year, and the Justice Department is now reportedly examining whether negligence makes BP managers guilty of involuntary manslaughter. Is this just scapegoating?

If they were negligent, prosecute them: How do you divvy up blame for an accident, asks Stephen Reader at Death and Taxes. Well, it's quite easy when "government regulations are ignored or circumvented." And that certainly seems to be the case here: BP had reportedly been aware of problems with the cement used to seal the well for three years, and decided against installing a key safety device. If it's proved that BP chiefs "opted to use shoddy equipment, or no equipment at all," then by all means, let them face prosecution.
"BP honchos could face manslaughter charges."

Don't expect to see Tony Hayward in court: BP's former chief executive Tony Hayward became the villain of last year's oil spill, says Nitasha Tiku at New York, and many may be excited "picturing [him] in an orange jumpsuit." Don't get your hopes up. Charges will likely only be for "low-level managers who ran the operation."
"BP could face manslaughter charges for Deepwater Horizon deaths"

The feds won't prosecute, but this really hurts BP: It's unlikely that individual BP managers or executives will be hauled into court, says Kirsten Korosec at BNET. But the mere consideration of manslaughter charges is "horribly damaging" to BP. Why? Because that means prosecutors have enough evidence to pursue criminal charges against the oil giant. If the company is found to be grossly negligent, it might be forced to pay more than $20 billion in fines.

A mahatma announces fast unto death

Anna Hazare has given an ultimatum to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to enact stringent anti-corruption law – the peoples “Jan Lokpal Bill”! Jail to the corrupt must happen! We have been betrayed by those that are leading us!

When & Where?
From 5th April at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi.

Who is Anna Hazare?
A soldier, lone survivor in his unit in 1965 Indo-Pak war, Anna dedicated his life to the well-being of society. A bachelor, an ascetic, he has no possessions, no bank balance and lives in a temple. He is a living Mahatma Gandhi!

In Maharashtra, Anna has single handedly transformed barren and dry regions into green and food surplus areas. He has fasted unto death on several earlier occasions. He forced the Maharashtra government to dismiss the corrupt - 6 ministers and 400 officers. Due to his fast, the govt enacted the Maharashtra RTI Act. In 2006, when government of India tried to amend the Central RTI Act, he again went on an indefinite fast and forced the Indian government not to amend RTI Act.

Leaders, organizations and the common man from across India will be with him. This is a do or die moment – let us make it happen!

Across India, join Swami Ramdev, Sri Sri Ravishankar, Swami Agnivesh, Arch Bishop Vincent Concessao, Mahmood A Madani, Kiran Bedi, J M Lyngdoh, Shanti Bhushan, Prashant Bhushan, Arvind Kejriwal, Mufti Shamoom Qasmi, Mallika Sarabhai, Arun Bhatia, Sunita Godara, All India Bank Employees Federation, PAN IIT Alumni Association, Common Cause and many other prominent organizations and leaders, as India comes out on the streets! 100+ CITIES WILL RALLY BEHIND ANNA!

This is a defining moment for India that can give our children a better future! Let us unite and stand by him! Thousands will be there to support him. Will you be there?

Anna’s appeal to the people:

When I sit on fast from 5 April, I urge my fellow countrymen to
Join me in fasting for one, two, three or whatever number of days you can comfortably fast.
Along with fast, please pray to God (whoever you believe in) for better and corruption free India. Collective prayers from all the people of India would definitely have a huge impact.
Write an impassioned plea to our Prime Minister that we look upon him to pass “Jan Lokpal Bill”, else we will be compelled not to vote for his party in next elections.
Remain calm and peaceful and develop the courage to go to jail, if required, in this next freedom movement.

If possible, come and stay with Anna at Jantar Mantar for a few days from April 5th.

Would you like to stay updated about this movement? Let us know your contact details at
