This just in from Reverend Billy:

A coalition of earth activist groups including Art Not Oil, Climate Rush, UK Tar Sands Coalition and Liberate Tate recently approached the Church of Earthalujah to “EXORCISE BP” from the Tate Modern museum in central London. The results were astonishing!

British Petroleum, or BP, is a contributor to the museum and features its logo on the building. This event concluded a 9 city tour of Europe and the UK that Rev. Billy embarked on, with actions in lobbies of Deutschbank, ING, UBS, and HSBC branches.

    There’s a whole bunch of other vids of creative art-interventions against oil sponsorship that have been taking place in UK gallery spaces

    And a leaflet that explains how oil companies use arts sponsorship as a means of creating their ‘social licence to operate’ in other parts of the world
