GREENPEACE SHUTS DOWN 120 ESSO STATIONS<br><br>
120 Esso stations were closed down across the UK this morning by more<br><br>
than 300 Greenpeace anti-war volunteers protesting Esso's power over<br><br>
the US Government which is fuelling war and global warming. Another<br><br>
100 people have blockaded the entrance to Esso's UK headquarters in<br><br>
Surrey. Some of them are now on the roof and have hung a banner.<br><br><a href="http://www.stopesso.com/campaign/00000095.php" target="_blank">http://www.stopesso.com/campaign/00000095.php</a><br><br><br><br>
NEW BRIEFING ON EXXON AND WAR<br><br>
If George Bush was acting on climate change, cutting use of oil and<br><br>
diversifying into renewable energy, he wouldn't need to go after<br><br>
cheap oil in Iraq. Greenpeace's new briefing explains how much<br><br>
ExxonMobil has to gain from a changed-regime in Iraq.<br><br><a href="http://www.stopesso.com/pdf/tigerintanks.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.stopesso.com/pdf/tigerintanks.pdf</a><br><br><br><br>

EXXON STANFORD RESEARCH PROJECT<br><br>
The independence of Exxon's Stanford research programme has come<br><br>
under fire from Nature magazine. A Stanford Professor has seriously<br><br>
questioned the project, saying:<br><br>
'in this instance, Stanford University has shown a marked blindness<br><br>
to the political agenda of the sponsors, which is a commitment to<br><br>
foster and expand the use of fossil-fuel energy (over the next ten<br><br>
years, $100 billion is being spent on oil exploration by ExxonMobil<br><br>
alone), while holding out the hope that technology will solve the<br><br>
resultant greenhouse-gas emission problems.'<br><br><a href="http://www.stopesso.com/coverage/00000046.php" target="_blank">http://www.stopesso.com/coverage/00000046.php</a><br><br><br><br>
US CLIMATE PLAN LAUGHABLE<br><br>
It's been a year since Bush announced the US/Exxon climate policy. On<br><br>
the anniversary, his officials were scrambling about trying to prove<br><br>
that voluntary emission reductions by big energy users are a failsafe<br><br>
way to tackle global warming. The announcement fell way short of<br><br>
proving anything other than the fact that US emissions are set to go<br><br>
through the roof.<br><br><a href="http://www.stopesso.com/campaign/00000093.php" target="_blank">http://www.stopesso.com/campaign/00000093.php</a><br><br><br><br>
LSE STUDENTS OCCUPY ESSO'S LONDON OFFICES<br><br>
As part of an international anti-war-for-oil day of action, 18 LSE<br><br>
students successfully occupied the 3rd floor of one of Esso's offices<br><br>
in central London. One student slipped inside through a side entrance<br><br>
before opening the main door from the inside for the rest of the<br><br>
students. The group moved up to the third floor and then staged a sit-<br><br>
in. A further 30 students held banners outside, distributed flyers<br><br>
and chanted: 'Exxon, Exxon, BP, Shell - take your war and go to<br><br>
hell!'. The police arrived within 15 minutes and about an hour after<br><br>
the occupation had started, began to evict people from the building.<br><br>
The group then went on to protest outside Esso's main offices in<br><br>
London on Aldwych, handily right next door to the LSE.<br><br>

EXXON MAN OPENS INSTITUTE OF PETROLUEM WEEK<br><br>
A senior ExxonMobil executive, Rex Tillerson, opened the IP Week.<br><br>
Ironically, the topic of the week was 'oil and gas as a future energy<br><br>
source', but Rex just talked about 'current sources'. No change<br><br>
there then. We greeted delegates with a little StopEsso quiz, and,<br><br>
of course, Esso Sucks lollipops to brighten up their morning.<br><br><br><br>
GREENPEACE AUSTRALIA STOPS MOBIL SHIP<br><br>
Last month, Greenpeace Australia activists locked on to a ship<br><br>
delivering shale oil to Mobil's Port Stanvac refinery in South<br><br>
Australia. They unfurled a a huge banner reading 'Mobil + shale oil<br><br>
= climate change' over the side of the ship. Mobil is the only oil<br><br>
company in Australia willing to buy the oil, which is produced<br><br>
through a highly polluting process, significantly increasing<br><br>
Australia's greenhouse gas emissions, and contributing to worse and<br><br>
more frequent droughts and bushfires and the destruction of the Great<br><br>
Barrier Reef.<br><br><a href="http://www.greenpeace.org.au/media/climate_details.php?site_id=12&news_id=936" target="_blank">http://www.greenpeace.org.au/media/c...12&news_id=936</a><br><br><br><br>
STOPESSO LAUNCHED IN IRELAND<br><br>
StopEsso cheerleaders took to the streets of Dublin on Saturday with<br><br>
the launch of StopEsso Ireland. Protests were also held in Cork,<br><br>
Limerick and Kilkenny. The flagship protest at Esso's new 'On the<br><br>
Run' station (we like this new slogan) drew much support from passers-<br><br>
by and motorists. StopEsso Ireland is supported by Friends of the<br><br>
Earth (Earthwatch) Ireland; VOICE; Friends of the Irish Environment;<br><br>
GRIAN and the Green Party. If you're in Ireland and want to get<br><br>
involved you can email <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>.<br><br><br><br>
LONDON MARCH ON US EMBASSY<br><br>
It's two years since Bush dumped Kyoto and, to mark the occasion, the<br><br>
Campaign against Climate Change is organising its second annual march<br><br>
from the ExxonMobil headquarters to the US Embassy in London on 29th<br><br>
March. Check out the website to see if you live along the route and<br><br>
can join or support the march in some way. For those of you for whom<br><br>
a 20 mile march is a bit much, join the rally at the Imperial War<br><br>
Museum at 3.30 pm.<br><br><a href="http://www.campaignagainstclimatechange.net/" target="_blank">http://www.campaignagainstclimatechange.net/</a><br><br></span>
