Devastating the Gulf of Mexico. Digging up dirty oil in the tar sands. Keeping the world addicted to fossil fuels and making climate catastrophe inevitable. Yet BP is the London 2012 'Sustainability Partner'.

It's scandalous that athletes will be presented medals tainted with injustice, environmental pollution and deadly health impacts.
Sheltering a fugitive corporation from justice. A corporation it happily merged with that is wanted, on CRIMINAL charges, for the culpable homicide of 25,000 people in the world's worst industrial disaster.
