street theatre protest against BP sponsorship of the Edinburgh International Festival
BP's oily tentacles are not just sucking the morality out of London's cultural institutions - they stretch to Edinburgh too. Yes, the oil giant is a top-level 'festival partner' of the Edinburgh International Festival. So theatrical protest group BP or not BP? is joining with performers and actorvists in Edinburgh to call for an end to oil sponsorship of the EIF. Now is the summer of our discontent! Please help us spread the word!
