Gaining confidence during her radio interview, Jessica announced, “Lots of women are having miscarriages who never had problems before.”
Jessica was unknowingly concurring with reports by women in other Gulf communities after the April 20th Deepwater Horizon explosions over Macondo Prospect in the Gulf of Mexico began the world’s largest toxic chemical catastrophe in history. She was also bringing back my own nightmarish experiences of Big Oil feeding off of me.
Still, even today, 33 months after the Gulf coast genocide began, I cannot watch victims in my Vampire of Macondo book trailer without choking up. Every day, it’s still incredible to me that our corporate government orchestrated this evil against innocent Americans and left them to die with no aid or comfort.
In Vampire of Macondo, I couldn’t resist including some of what South Louisiana resident Margaret Curole told me in her strong Cajun dialect about one of the many thousands of dead and dying dolphins:
“We watched her push her dead baby with her nose around in circles, as though she didn’t know what to do. Then, she pushed her dead baby right up to us, as if asking us to bring it back to life for her.”
Nor could I resist lines about “Easy Rider.” Peter Fonda:
Peter Fonda, a big fan of sea life, didn’t take to Obama ordering him to shut up. Mr. Fonda told me about that at the Cannes Film Festival, at the world debut of The Big Fix that he’s in. He promptly wrote to Obama and told him he’s a ‘f...ing traitor.’
The next day, that news went viral. I understand Mr. Fonda paid the price for it, too. He did tell me he was proud of young Jessica Hagan for telling the world the truth about the genocide.
Also from this section in Vampire of Macondo are statements that NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary told talk show host David Gibbons:
“It is shocking to just see the immediate symptoms just a few months after the BP oil spill and to track this into the future and to project,” and “It’s very scary. We’re talking about long-term effects.” (2)
Other doctors and scientists concur with O’Leary, understanding that as bad as it already is for thousands of Gulf victims, the worst of this public health impact will be delayed. Many women already grieve after their losses while some, as highlighted in Vampire of Macondo, did not survive the abuse. Not only women and the unborn, but also men and children have perished, almost none recognized by mainstream press or others responsible for this crime.
