Baku-Ceyhan pipeline: urgent action

17-10-2003 11:49


This is if you can bring yourself to do a little lobbying. I met my MP last week - a leftie Labour one - and she was very onside, offering to put down an EDM (for whatever that's worth, which is probably a little in terms of upping pressure on funders) in the Commons. Actually, I'd recommend it in this specific circumstance.

Free organic potatoes and apple pie was given out, along with the usual banners, leaflets, and speech bubbles on the window ( 'yum yum, mcslurry' ). Such a big crowd gathered that the police decided to arrest one man for obstruction of the highway - and nick all the potatoes! Loads of support and conversations were had with interested joe public.

This sort of privatisation has real implications for campaigners. When the
streets are privatised we won't be able to hand out flyers if the management
don't want us there. If there were a shop selling sweatshop goods or
involved in environmental destruction, the simple act of trying to inform
the public would become an act of trespass.
