What you describe is illegal. What you need is an attorney, and I suggest your first stop should be the ACLU since your civil rights are being violated in the name of site control. \n\nYour second stop should be the newspapers and TV stations around the Gulf. Be persistent, be tough, have a clear, succinct sound bite message. \n\nThird should be making the rounds of environmental lawyers. See: http://www.alabamaenvironmentalattorneys.com/ \nhttp://www.louisianaenvironmentallawyers.com/\n\nWith attorneys, one has to be persistent, keep beating the bushes until you find what you want. Don't give up and don't get waylaid by either of: \n1. Discouragement \n2. Pressure tactics for a retainer. \n\nYour case should be taken pro-bono and it should be taken up with enthusiasm. \n\nLast, become a smuggler and enlist help. Go out into the bayous and ask for help from the cajuns who live there. Tell them what you need. Find ways to hide your samples, and enlist help from colleagues and friends around the country to receive and hold them for you. \n\nDon't give up, never give in!
