Drilling Rig Boycott Barrier

We and a thousand others from Pensacola wanted to protest the one public hearing in Florida that Minerals Management Service allowed yesterday over its most recent 5-year plan to sink "exploratory wells within a hundred miles" of Pensacola Beach.

But the oil-friendly U.S. agency scheduled the hearing too far away, at mid-week, and during working hours. Plus, the weather was wretched.

So none of us could attend the boycott.
