BP Fortnight of Shame!

Originally posted in April 2010.

In April, we organised two weeks of direct action called the ‘Fortnight of Shame’ to highlight BP’s plans to go into the Tar Sands. Actions took place all over the country, culminating in the “Party at the Pumps” where over 100 activists shut down a BP petrol station in London for several hours.

We also supported a First Nations delegation to attend the BP AGM where a shareholder resolution on Tar Sands was voted on, working in partnership with FairPensions and Greenpeace. Whilst some of us went into the meeting to challenge the Board directly, others held a noisy demonstration outside.
