Take the Flour Back! Mass action against GM wheat

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 05/20/2012 - 08:09

Sunday 27th May 2012
Public day of action against the Rothamsted genetically modified wheat trial.

We need local, community-based solutions to the climate crisis. Despite being much trumpeted for some years now as an answer to climate change, no GM drought tolerant or ‘climate ready’ crops have made it to the table anywhere in the world. Nor do we think, even if ever possible, these would be a solution.

Shell Campaign

Shell-out Sponsorship = buying us off

By sponsoring our cultural institutions, Shell tries to protect its reputation, distract our attention from its environmental and human rights crimes around the world and buy our acceptance. When we challenge this, we strike a blow at Shell’s brand, chip away at its power and move  towards the day when Big Oil – like Big Tobacco – is no longer seen as socially acceptable. As we once kicked the tobacco companies out of our cultural institutions we must now do the same to the oil industry.

BP under fire at 2012 AGM

 London Rising Tide recently helped out their friends from the UK Tar Sands Network at the BP AGM...

Gulf Coast residents cut short by Chair, and environmental questions brushed aside before meeting disrupted by “die-in” protest. BP’s Annual General Meeting was once again an uncomfortable experience for the Board. They were confronted by questions on oil spills, tar sands, Olympic sponsorship and interplanetary escape pods, before nine people “died” in protest at the company’s contribution to climate change and human rights abuses, and were removed bodily from the room by security guards.
