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.
