Stop Esso

Issue No. 1778

Over 3,000 people took part in pickets of Esso petrol stations last weekend to highlight the firm's sabotage of international action on global warming. Over 300 petrol stations were targeted by the Stop Esso campaign with protesters attempting to turn vehicles away from Esso forecourts.

Esso is the British arm of Exxon Mobil, the world's biggest oil company. The campaign says, 'Esso pretends that global warming isn't happening even though it's a major cause of it. Esso spends millions of dollars on misleading propaganda every year. It would rather sell more petrol than protect future generations.'
