This 2010 video is called BP Oil Spill Footage: Save the Birds.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Wednesday 13 April 2011
Oil giant BP will face a wave of protests as it holds its annual general meeting in London tomorrow.
Participants at the AGM, which begins just days before the first anniversary of the Gulf of Mexico disaster, include shareholding fishermen and women from the US Gulf Coast, who were hit by the massive oil spill after the explosion of BP‘s Deepwater Horizon rig last April.
They will be joined by indigenous communities who are angry at BP’s involvement in tar sands extraction in Canada, while activists will be holding protests outside the AGM and around London in the coming week against the oil giant.
Scores of workers involved in a dispute at a BP-owned biofuels plant near Hull will also stage a demonstration outside the meeting.
They will be accompanied by a Mexican band as well as waving flags and banners with slogans proclaiming: BP Workers – Locked Out But Not Knocked Out.
GMB general secretary Paul Kenny said: “We are organising for the locked-out workers to come to London to draw attention to the irresponsible behaviour of BP and link it to the oil slicks in the Gulf of Mexico.”
From the GMB site:
GMB members locked out of the BP bio fuel ethanol site at Saltend in Hull plan to come to London to the BP AGM to protest against the lock out. Talks convened by ACAS in Wakefield yesterday (Sunday 10th April) ended when the employers walked out of the talks.
The protest will take place from:
10.30 AM onwards on
THURSDAY 14TH APRIL 2011
LONDON EXCEL CENTRE
ROYAL VICTORIA DOCK
1 WESTERN GATEWAY
Some of the protestors will be dressed as an oil slick with slogans linking BP’s irresponsible behaviour in the Gulf of Mexico and locking out the workers at Saltend.
Knew oil was dirty business, but 6,500 oil spills, leaks, fires or explosions in 2010 alone? Damn. Wake up America! Here.
