Codepink activists stage a demonstration calling for British Petroleum to clean up the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, during a protest outside BP Plc's corporate headquarters building in Houston May 24, 2010. The U.S. government piled pressure on BP to clean up a "massive environmental mess" in the Gulf of Mexico amid growing anger at the oil giant's failure to contain a five-week-old oil spill. The company insisted it was doing all it could to try to shut off a blown-out oil well spewing hundreds of thousands of gallons (liters) of oil into the Gulf every day.
