Anti-Total protest in Oxford

- | 02.10.2007 18:45 | Anti-militarism | Repression | Oxford


Activists staged a protest at Total petrol station on Oxford Road in Oxford on Saturday. They tried to block the access to the station but were low on numbers and unfortunately the immediate police presence meant that they were moved to one side. Still, the large banner sent out a clear message about Total Oil’s support of the Burmese junta to lots of motorists on the busy Saturday afternoon. Many indicated to turn in before changing their minds. Those who chose to refill their tanks were handed leaflets and given a lecture on the situation in Burma and Total’s decision to exploit it.

I’ve also noticed some anti-Total graffiti about.
