May 16th, 2010 - Grand Isle, LA - During a  break in daylong thunderstorms, hearty Gulf Coast community members --  including fishermen, shrimpers, grandmothers and families -- directly impacted by the massive Deepwater Horizon oil spill, sent the giant human text message "NEVER AGAIN" to BP and the federal government, Congress, and other officials calling for urgent action to address the  economic and environmental devastation from the spill. The event was sponsored by the Commercial Fisherman of America and Global Green USA  and included food relief for out of work fishermen and their families.

This was the first time these fishermen were ever involved in an action of any kind,” said Margaret Curole, an Executive Board member of Commercial Fisherman of America.  "...yesterday they said to me 'I get it, we did something.'”
