A funeral service for the Gulf. Members of Occupy NOLA say the Gulf of Mexico was murdered by BP and others linked to the disaster that dumped massive amounts of oil into it nearly two years ago.

The group held a funeral service and procession from New Orleans' BP headquarters yesterday. It went to the city's federal court building where a re-scheduled massive civil trial to assess blame for the disaster is set to begin Monday, unless an out-of-court settlement is reached before then.
