Dozens of protesters marshaled in front of a BP gas station in New York on Friday, at the intersection of Houston and Lafayette streets. Incensed by what they called "BP's oil hemorrhage," they came dressed as fish, frogs and mermaids. They simulated an oil spill with bottles of fake oil, chanting "BP, your heart is black, you can have your oil back!" They called for criminal prosecution of BP executives. Joining other, less dressed, protests around the country, the NYC action was covered by CNN, ABC, and NY1 news.
