War and Oil

The anti war demo went ahead on Saturday. Thousands of protestors obediently marched through London and congregated in Trafalgar Square. Check out the stop the war website for more information. I haven’t noticed that the war has stopped.

I also visited the Wildlife Photographer of the Year which is hosted by the Natural History Museum and sponsored somewhat ironically by Shell. The photos where pretty good and showed no signs of the recent protest. Shell is a well known culprit in terms of environmental destruction. One particularly noted abuse was in Nigeria where Shell caused massive pollution. Protest was silenced by the Nigerian government and protesters executed – among them Ken Saro-Wiwa. You can find out more information here or by searching on the web.
