4 April 2010
BP is about to join the scramble for the tar sands. ‘Beyond petroleum’ has become ‘back to black’ as BP’s plunge into the most destructive extraction project on Earth makes a mockery of its own PR greenwash. On Fossil Fools day, 2010, London Rising Tide and the London Tar Sands Network decided to help BP with a rebranding strategy to reflect their renewed commitment to environmental devastation and catastrophic climate change. Unfortunately, BP’s UK head office didn’t appreciate the delivery of the new ‘back to black’ marketing materials, although they kindly decided not to press charges over the ‘criminal damage’ caused by the protest. Sadly no-one seems to be pressing charges against the corporations engaged in planetary scale criminal damage in the Canadian tar sands. For more information visit http://www.no-tar-sands-org
