Kilburn Total Oil Burma Protest 9th July 2008

12-07-2008 20:06

Three protesters braved the rain on Wednesday 9th July to protest at Totalitarian Oil at Kilburn Total station, 409 Kilburn High Rd, Kilburn, NW6 7QG. For many years French Total Oil has been funding the brutal Burmese junta's oppression of the Burmese people, with hundreds of millions of dollars a year from the Yadana gas pipeline. The Burmese don't benefit from the gas exported to Thailand, instead they have suffered from forced labour and the military camps around the pipeline. The junta spends 50% of Burma's budget on the army and uses foreign currency it earns to buy weapons.

12-07-2008 14:32

Another example of why PETA are not animal rights.

12-07-2008 11:45

Time and time again PETA have done deals with the animal abusers, settling for minor welfare improvements, this is welfare, not AR!
PETA have even suggested people go to Burger King, as part of their boycott Wendy's campaign in America.
Earlier this year they ran a campaign with burlesque star dita von teese a woman who has regularly worn fur and admits to enjoying a bit of foie gras.
A group such as PETA, one so full of hypocrisies dose not deserve our support.
The article below is from the Memphis Business Journal, July 9, 2008.
Don't give PETA your money, they have plenty, give it to grassroots AR groups as they make the real differences in these animals lives.
