"The government has relinquished control over the offshore areas of our industry. Norway was tough regarding oil companies from the start. You now have an almost embarrassingly large pension fund. The situation for Irish communities, however, is as in Ogoniland in Nigeria - oil is a curse,”
Thursday 26th April @ 7pm, join London Rising Tide for an evening of film and discussion about climate activism and the oil industry.
Award-winning film 'The Pipe' will be shown, along with two short films of recent actions against BP and Shell by Rising Tide and friends. Afterwards there will be discussions on direct action against the oil industry in London and plenty of opportunities to get involved.
This is for anyone who believes in climate justice and wants to help make it happen, anyone pissed off with the greed and irresponsibility of oil giants like Shell and BP, anyone interested in environmental direct action and looking to get involved locally. Everyone is welcome!
