This is what environmental protest really looks like



BP boss steps down, protesters blockade stations
Greenpeace activists have been shutting down BP service stations across London this morning (this evening NZT) in protest at the company's handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The organisation's UK website says it aims "to close dozens down this morning". Greenpeace chose today for the protest because the announcement about Hayward stepping down was expected. Greenpeace is updating how many stations have been shut down on its website. The latest figure is 46.

This is how you do it folks, massive numbers, massive action, with well organized small cell groups. Something to keep in mind for NZ.

Especially because so many service stations in NZ are owned by individuals rather than the BP parent company...yeah lets destroy people's livelihoods and throw them out on the street!

Is that kind of like what BP did to the people living near the disaster they created, not to mention the wildlife and animals effected in the devastation, oh and what about the waterways into the ocean, shit the list goes on.

Of course not left wing propaganda is as retarded as right wing propaganda.

Hi Bomber, can you explain how the Greenpeace action doesn't hurt small business owners? Because I don't see that story anywhere on the web, all I see is anger at Greenpeace. I'd like to believe Greeenpeace was in the right, but I need reasons.

Oh yeah, let's power cars on goat farts and naivety. Oh wait, they're not financially viable without massive gubmint subsidies yet. Until then I guess all we can do is drill, baby, drill!

Hey, look, the oil is gone already. http://abcnews.go.com/WN/bp-oil-spill-crude-mother-nature-breaks-slick/story?id=11254252
My mere three year estimation appears to be way off.
