Day of action for Burma in Chester
A rather damp and windswept stall
Outside Hoole TOTAL petrol station
Nearly everyone beeped to show their support
In the afternoon, in slightly kinder weather, we held a noisy demo outside Hoole TOTAL petrol station. The response to our ‘beep for burma’ banners and placards was overwhelming. An irate TOTAL worker came out to shout at us for venturing onto the forecourt and to defend her employer on the spurious grounds that Shell – who she used to work for – is just as unethical. Yeah, we know that, but today is about Burma and TOTAL is the main culprit there.
It would be great if these demos were held at a frequency to cause real concern to TOTAL, and with the aim of shutting the petrol station down. Anyone in Chester or nearby up for this?
