Saturday, 10 April 2010 Meet 1 PM at Oxford Circus
BP want to start extracting oil from the tar sands, the single most destructive project on earth - fuelling climate chaos and trampling the rights of indigenous communities. We want to stop them. On Saturday, 10th April, hundreds of people from London and beyond will gather at the pumps to send a message to BP: “you’re not going into the tar sands without a fight!” Come to a mass action! Bring yourselves, your friends, whistles and drums if you have them, and a Zone 1-2 travel card.
Expect dancing and drums, sunshine and soundsystems, party and protest. This action is part of the BP Fortnight of Shame. Organised by London Rising Tide/London Tar Sands Network, in solidarity with the Indigenous Environmental Network. The BP Fortnight of Shame (April 1 – 15 2010) is a call to action from the UK Tar Sands Network, Rising Tide, the Camp for Climate Action and the Indigenous Environmental Network to force BP to reverse their crazy plans to move into Canada’s tar sands. It runs between the annual Fossil Fools day on April 1st, which in recent years has seen a flurry of action against the fossil fuels industry, and BP’s Annual General Meeting on April 15th. Grassroots groups across the UK and around the world, will be taking action in solidarity with First Nations communities in Canada to stop BP’s deadly plans in their tracks.
