BEING THERE: PHOTOS FROM THE PROTEST AGAINST SEISMIC TESTING IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

Do you want Big Oil to drill off our coast? Neither do these folks.

Yesterday, the good people from the Mantanzas Riverkeeper hosted a press conference/protest to rally against against seismic testing in the Atlantic testing, an issue we’ve told you about before. (In July, by the way, the Bureau of Ocean Management signed off on seismic testing permits, which environmental groups warn could endanger any number of marine mammals.) The Riverkeeper and other environmental orgs want candidates for governor and attorney general to take a stand on seismic testing — a forerunner to drilling for oil and gas in the Atlantic — before the election.

Former Folio Weekly photo editor Walter Coker was there, and captured these great pictures.
