Vermillion 380 via CSMonitor


At exactly 10:19 am Eastern time today the Vermillion 380, a shallow water rig, exploded. The news comes just 133 days after BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig sunk into the Gulf of Mexico.

News of more exploding oil rigs will surely be keeping the comrades at Raging Pelican, an Louisiana gulf-based anarchist collective making sense of the environmental and human destruction caused by the oil industry and capitalism.
