May 14 2001, Montreal, quebec, Canada
Greenpeace Canada today kicked off its most
ambitious campaign yet: Stopping Esso from killing the climate.
Greenpeace activists in Montreal locked themselves
to gas pumps at Esso stations while people in George Bush masks urged motorists to buy gas elsewhere with one clear message: Don't Buy Esso.
"Esso is going to be held accountable for sabotaging Kyoto and ignoring the science of climate change," said Greenpeace's Stop Esso campaigner Jennifer Story. "Esso says don't ratify Kyoto. We say if you need gas, don't buy Esso.";
