Londoners join global Total protest - Wed 7 Nov

Wednesday's die-in outside Total Oil's London headquarters in Oxford Circus was part of a global day of action against Total called by the Burma Global Action Network.

It took place on the day Total's third quarter profits were announced, with net profits rising 29 per cent to £2.17 billion.

Demonstrators in Cavendish Square dressed in blood-soaked bandages and displaying a giant globe held placards reading: “Total out of Burma now" and "Free Burma".

They also unveiled some alternative 3rd Quarter Results for the company, detailed the impacts of its support for the Burmese regime. It comes ahead of a UK-wide day of action outside TOTAL forecourts on Saturday 24th November.
