Bad Company – report for Culture Unstained

A new 44-page report for Culture Unstained that exposes the human-rights abuses of BP (British Petroleum).  The report questions the ethics of accepting BP sponsorship by several leading cultural institutions in London – The British Museum, The Royal Opera House, The National Portrait Gallery and The science Museum.  All these respected institutions have ‘ethical policies’ which the report finds are in serious conflict with the business practices of BP in many countries around the world.  Download the full report from the Culture Unstained website as a 1.6Mb PDF.

My favourite page in this report shows a beautiful hand-made tapestry from Mexico, which features an old Mexican saying: “They wanted to bury us but they did not know that we are seeds.”
