Eco-Terrorists Shut Down BP Gas Stations

From a cheering BBC News:

A Greenpeace activist displays a sign after closing down the Hampstead Road BP station in Camden, north London July 27, 2010.

Greenpeace activists close down BP stations in London

27 July 2010

BP filling stations across London have been shut down by activists. Environmental group Greenpeace said it had cut fuel supplies to all 50 BP stations in the city. The oil firm said 35 had been shut but 18 have now re-opened.

The protesters stopped the fuel by removing safety switches on forecourts

Note that these thugs are so concerned for the environment that they removed the safety switches in 50 gas stations. That gives you some idea of their priorities.

Greenpeace said it wanted the company to adopt greener energy policies.

A BP spokesman said the fuel stations would be reopened as soon as it was safe to do so. Greenpeace said the safety switches will be returned. He described the stunt as "an irresponsible and childish act which is interfering with safety systems".

“Stunt”? Why are acts from leftwing terrorist that directly endanger lives and property always called “stunts”? Is the media afraid that they will be targeted next?

Greenpeace said the protest was being held to urge Bob Dudley, who will take over from Mr Hayward from October, to move away from "his predecessor’s obsession with high-risk, environmentally-reckless sources of oil".

Greenpeace and their fellow travelers are obviously racists. They only want oil companies to drill for oil in lands that belong to black or brown people, such as Africa and the Middle East. They don’t care if the those environments are destroyed.

At one station in Camden, north London, Greenpeace climbers replaced BP’s logo with a new version showing the green "sunflower" disappearing into a sea of oil. At others, protesters put up signs saying: "Closed. Moving beyond petroleum."

The organisation’s executive director John Sauven said: "The moment has come for BP to move beyond oil. We’ve shut down all of BP’s stations in London to give the new boss a chance to come up with a better plan. They’re desperate for us to believe they’re going ‘beyond petroleum’.  Well now’s the time to prove it."

The ‘protesters’ then hugged each other for their heroic work, and got back into their cars and drove home.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan police said they were monitoring the situation but no crime had been reported and no arrests had been made so far

Of course not.

    What part of petroleum don’t they understand in the company name, British Petroleum?

    Friggin’ terrorists!

    The UK is already messed up enough that they could actually get away with stripping these idiots of their right to utilize any fossil fuel powered vehicle.

    It’s never to late to plan for your future.

    BP should press criminal charges for interfering with their safety regulations. Then they should sue for the money they lost in prevented sales to all 50 gas stations. The people/city/town/country should pursue criminal charges as well for endangering the welfare of everyone in those areas. What would have happened if one of the gas stations blew up because of these reckless morons? Throw their asses in jail and sue the crap out of Greenpeace for encouraging such unbelievably dangerous acts of vandalism. Protesting and picketing is all fine and good, but putting the lives of all the workers and the all the people who work/live in the vicinity of those 50 gas stations at risk is absolutely inexcusable.

    Jail ’em until such time as they can be “deemed” safe to be around others.
