Day of Action- Sat 24 Nov (updated)


Join the protests at TOTAL petrol stations around the UK calling for TOTAL to pull out of Burma. TOTAL's investment in Burma is earning the dictatorship hundreds of millions of dollars every year.

Please show your support by attending one of the protests listed below. All those listed ARE due to take place. You are welcome to just turn up. Banners, placards and leaflets will be provided.

2. Details of how to get involved

There are two ways to take part in the day of action:

1. Join a garage protest (see list above). You can get in touch with the contact listed or you can just turn up on the day and offer your support.

2. Organise your own action - there are several hundred TOTAL petrol stations in the UK to choose from. Follow these three easy steps:

a. Find out where your local TOTAL garage is by using the handy Service Station Finder at or check the google map of UK TOTAL garages being created at

b. Get some simple visual materials together, plus some leaflets or petitions, and publicise it to your friends, contacts and local press. If you want the details listed publicly (e.g. by email and on the blog) email them to totaloutofburma[at] or call Paul on 07939 975 085.

c. Hold the protest! Take some pictures, post a report on and send the link to totaloutofburma[at] Plus write to TOTAL's head office telling them what you've been up to.

Basic placard designs, petitions, leaflets and a model press release are available via this blog (see right column).
