Babs "Roaming Buffalo" Bagwell, Voice from the Gulf

Babs "Roaming Buffalo" Bagwell, Voice from the Gulf

Babs is from the Isle de Jean Charles Band of Biloxi-Chitimacha, Choctaw people in, Louisiana.

Babs like so many has become an activist out of necessity. Listen to her account of living with big oil before and after the BP, Deep Water Horizon disaster. For more information about the Isle de Jean Charles visit...


  1. According to Juan Cole the BP disaster was a consequence of the late Maggie Thatcher's privatization policies: "By selling off the one-third British government stake in BP, the oil giant, Thatcher’s privatization policies made the company unaccountable to any public and allowed it to pursue naked profit-seeking and disregard of the environment. The Gulf oil spill would have looked different and perhaps had a different outcome if the company had still been in part publicly owned. As it is, it is complaining about paying reparations to Gulf residents whose livelihoods it ruined! And, public ownership would have made it more open to pursuing green energy (as the governments of the UK and Scotland increasingly are) instead of doubling down on deadly hydrocarbons."
