Please click the link andsign the petition before August 21st so that ocean protections will remain in place.
The Gullah/Geechee Nation also finds itself having to fight against oil exploration, oil drilling, and the use of seismic guns in the Atlantic Ocean once again since the US government is attempting to reopen the coast to this. We have until August 17, 2017 for comments to be entered with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) in opposition to oil exploration including the use of seismic guns and to oil drilling. We are calling on all of our supporters worldwide to let them know that you stand with the Gullah/Geechee Nation maintaining its cultural heritage on this coast and to that end, you want the Atlantic Coast kept off of the list of locations for oil exploration and drilling to take place. You can go to https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=BOEM-2017-0050-0001 to enter your comments.
Tenki Tenki ta all hunnuh wha gwine stand wid de Gullah/Geechee! Disya time, de wata need we!
