Protesters outside the White House on Tuesday were anything but shy when talking about the BP Oil Spill. We heard everything from a guy relaying to President Obama - via song - the old Negro Spiritual "Study War No More" to another group of protesters who thinks Chelsea Clinton should ask her guests to bring gifts for the victims of the BP Oil Spill instead of traditional wedding gifts.
"I want to see the people in the Gulf, many who are Black, get justice", said activist Rocky Twyman, member of Concerned Citizens Around The World . "As long as we have a war going on we're not really going to fully help these people."

"Let's have a word of prayer. 'Cause he's dependent on human wisdom, and to God human wisdom is just folly."
Since our interview with Twyman, BP is reporting that "the well integrity test on the MC252 well commenced today; full closure of the choke valve occurred at approximately 2:25pm. Currently the well remains shut-in with no oil flowing into the Gulf; any significant change to this operation will be announced via a press release."
Watch the video below to see the oil's long overdue, but welcomed stoppage.
