Gulf Oil Spill: Citizens Of The World–Boycott BP for The Gulf Oil Spill


Here is a quick list taken from Wikipedia of all the products BP makes.  (Castrol Oil is one of them–stop buying Castrol) Don’t get fooled.  Know exactly what names and aliases this ugly corporation uses to push its products on US, the Citizens of the Earth.  We will not allow this level of stupidity to continue.

If your corporation ruins OUR Ocean, then WE remove your corporation from the planet.  BP is a disease on the Earth.  Stand up and do your part to heal the Earth of this sickness.  Boycott BP.

BP retail brands:

BP

BP is one of the world’s shortest and most valuable brands. The Helios logo (Helios is the name of the Greek sun god), represents energy in its many forms. The company owns the two letter internet domain bp.com, which the company registered in 1989.[citation needed] BP’s tagline is “beyond petroleum”; according to the company this represents their focus on meeting the growing demand for fossil fuels, manufacturing and delivering more advanced products, and enabling the material transition to a lower carbon future.[80]

ampm

Main article: ampm

ampm is a convenience store chain with branches located in several U.S. states including Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, recently in Illinois, Indiana, Georgia and Florida, and in several countries worldwide such as Japan. In the western US, the stores are usually attached to an ARCO gas station; elsewhere, the stores are attached to BP gas stations. BP Connect stations in the US are transitioning to the ampm brand.

ARCO

Main article: ARCO

ARCO is BP’s retail brand on the US West Coast in the seven Western States of California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, and Utah. BP acquired ARCO (formerly the AtlanticRichfieldCompany) in 2000. ARCO is a popular “cash only” retailer, selling products refined from Alaska North Slope crude at plants at Cherry Point (WA), Los Angeles (CA) and at other contract locations on the West Coast.

BP Travel Centre

BP Travel Centers are large scale destination sites located in Australia which on top of offering the same features of a BP Connect site with fuel and a Wild Bean Cafe, also feature major food-retail tenants such as McDonalds, KFC, Nando’s and recently Krispy Kreme, with a large seating capacity food court. There are also facilities for long-haul truck drivers including lounge, showers and washing machines all in the same building. There are 4 travel centers located in South East Queensland, Australia. Two on the Pacific Highway (Coomera and Stapylton) and two on the Bruce Highway (Caboolture). A fifth travel center was opened in 2007 at Chinderah in northern New South Wales.

BP Connect

BP Connect is BP’s flagship retail brand name with BP Connect Service stations being operated around the UK, Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and other parts of the world. BP Connect sites feature the Wild Bean Cafe which offers cafe style coffee made by the staff and a selection of hot food as well as freshly baked muffins and sandwiches. The food offered in Wild Bean Cafe varies from each site. BP Connect sites usually offer table and chair seating and often an Internet kiosk. In the US, the BP Connect concept is gradually being transitioned to the ampm brand and concept. Some BP Connect sites around the UK ran in partnership with Marks & Spencer with the on-site shop being an M&S Simply Food instead of a BP Shop.

BP Express

BP Express was the flagship BP brand prior to the introduction of BP Connect in 2000. There are still some BP Express sites operating around the world but most have been either upgraded to Connect or changed to an alternative brand. BP Express offers a bakery service but doesn’t have the selection of food offered in the Wild Bean Cafe and usually coffee is only available through a self service machine.

In the Netherlands BP is opening unmanned stations with no shops or employees. these stations are called BP Express.[81] Some of these stations used to be ‘ordinary’ BP stations, some are new to the BP network. Apart from these stations BP Express shopping does also exist in the Netherlands.

BP Shop

A BP Petrol prices sign outside a BP Shop garage in the United Kingdom (prices in UK pence per litre).

BP Shop is commonly used on smaller sites mainly independently owned sites. Products vary in each BP Shop but usually a selection of convenience store style food and automotive products.

BP 2go branded petrol station in Australia

BP 2go

BP 2go is a franchise brand used for independently operated sites in New Zealand and is currently being rolled out throughout Australia (Although not all BP 2go stores are franchises in Australia). BP 2go sites mainly operate in towns and outer suburbs in New Zealand. BP 2go offers similar bakery food to BP Connect but in a pre-packaged form. Some BP Express sites around New Zealand and Australia that were considered too small to be upgraded to BP Connect were given the option to change to BP 2go others were downgraded to BP Shop. Staff at some BP 2go sites wear a different style of uniform to the rest of the BP branded sites, however in company owned and operated 2go sites in Australia the same uniform is worn across all sites.

Castrol

Castrol is a brand of motor oil and other lubricants which is entirely a BP brand but tends to retain its separate identity.

Air BP and BP Shipping

Air BP is the aviation fuel arm, BP Marine the marine fuels and lubricants arm and BP Shipping is the Shipping arm within the BP group

BP Shipping provides the logistics to move BP’s oil and gas cargoes to market as well as marine assurance on everything that floats in the BP group It manages a large fleet of vessels most of which are held on long term operating leases. BP Shipping’s Chartering Teams based in London, Singapore and Chicago also charter third party vessels on both time charter and voyage charter basis. BP-managed fleet consists of Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs), one North Sea shuttle tanker, medium size crude and product carriers, liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carriers and coasters. All of these ships are double-hulled.

    May 24-Gulf Oil Flow- BP Stalls with BS- Stop the Flow!
    BP had a month to prepare for “top kill” or was it a month of stalling? Big Oil and World Bankers are more powerful then the United States of America! Today, BP is in command and feeds the media what ever BS they want with no questions asked. The mass media, Congress and the President are in the bag. It wasn’t until May 18 that the first video of the wellhead and preventer were released! No one in the media even mentions that the standard riser is 18 inches in diameter and the shown salvage siphon is only a 3/4 inch tube! Turn your garden hose on full blast (1,240 bpd) and see if you can fill 5,000 barrels in 24 hours with the flow! That is brazen propaganda; are people THAT stupid? The new video reveals that the wellhead flow is accurate at 95,000 barrels of oil a day; not BPs 5,000 bpd. Yet, 5,000 bpd is the official BS story without qualification. According to BP, there is not an out of control situation and they are recovering close to 100% of the flow! Everyone knows that BP will pay only a small fraction of the actual damage and the American taxpayer will bail them out.
    Gulp-up the BS propaganda that a 3/4 tube can deliver 5,000 barrels a day of oil and gas straight up a mile to a recovery ship! Never mind that the wellhead and preventer is the main source of the flow of oil and that BP has only been trying to salvage oil at the end of the fallen riser. BPs failed salvage operations over the last month, Big Bell and Top Hat, were salvage operations; not operations to stop the flow of oil at the wellhead with a top kill. The mass news media is as complicit as the President and Congress and all take the American public for propagandized fools. This out of control oil well is an ecological and economic genocide of the American people and should be responded to as a terrorist attack by those in power; Totalitarian World Bankers and Big Oil on their New World Order agenda. First, they must bankrupt the American people and corrupt our Democracy into submission by debt. By design, our nation will fall into line with the other debtor Nations. Our Democracy has been overthrown and is unable to control the Totalitarian World Bankers and Big Oil.

      Very true and very sad. The sin of all of this is the impact that this has over all animal and plant life forms and that they are suffering and dying as a result of man’s greed for power, control and OIL consumption! Also, people seem to not have ANY clue as to what major health issues humanity will suffer in the future as a result of this OIL SCAM TRAGEDY! If the animal’s all die, (fish, birds and other species) a rise in “pests” and insects will occur with a trail of pestilence following in its path.

        think about what you are saying on greed cause I’m sure you drive a car so it uses gas and oil. If they are greedy then so are you give up the car and put them out of bussiness but will you do it? I bet the answer will be NO. So that makes you as guilty as them.

    BP is raping our ocean! Destroying the foodchain, from the tiniest alga to the largest whale to humans.

    I HATE them, and will NEVER buy any of their products. They are despicable, and inept.

    That they have NO VIABLE FIX is unconscionable. All they care about is MONEY, never did they , or will they care about the World’s creatures.

    I really believe this is the beginning of another of our Earth’s ‘great die-off’.

    God help us all now. Apocalypse now.

    I wonder who BP’s international partners are. We hcr Castrol products here but I am completely unfamiliar with the rest of the brands you listed.

    Before this disaster started I had never heard of BP.

    I am going to have to do some research and find out if they do go international.

    I think a boycott makes a lot of sense.

  10. June 5, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    The residents of the Gulf should review recent Massachusetts law news.

    A jury through an environmental class action suit has recently awarded Massachusetts property owners damages eight years after the oil spill ravaged Buzzards Bay, polluting residential beaches, devastating ecosystems and hurting local property values, according to lawyers for the plaintiffs.

    On April 27, 2003, eight years ago the Bouchard Barge B-120 hit an obstacle in Buzzards Bay, creating a 12-foot rupture in its hull and discharging an estimated 100,000 gallons of No. 6 oil. The oil is known to have affected an estimated 90 miles of shoreline, killed 450 numerous bird species, and recreational use of the bay, such as shell fishing and boating.

    mistake’s are made.I swear some of these buffoon’s are trying to compare Bp with that terrorist nation Israel oop’s or the Nazi regime oh can’t tell the difference anymore.

    Where do we get these crazy ideas? This was an accident. Energy is the life blood of the economy. Everything in life has an energy component and without energy there is no tomorrow, period. We need to work with BP to solve this catastophy, not penalize them. This was an accident nothing more and nothing less. IT was an unforseen situation or the resulting state that requires immediate action to protect life, property and the environment. Lets work together to solve the problems of the world, not Boycott BP.

      I suppose you think when a drunk kills a family with his car it was just an accident also. This was not an accident. They gambled and lost. Unfortunately it our oceans that are being forced to pay the price. BP should not be boycotted, they should be removed from our waters, their assets confiscated and their profits given to those who have been harmed by their negligence.

        Mark Lane – what an excellent idea. That way every US company that has an accident overseas like Union Carbide (now Dow) – Bhopal: minimum 3000 dead and still no clean-up 20+ years on), Occidental; Texaco; etc – Piper Alpha, North Sea: 167 dead) should expect reciprocal treatment? Special.

      Perhaps you should read some of the legal documents that show BP repeatedly took cost cutting methods instead of following protocol or recomendations from engineers and from Haliburton that the cement job would fail if bp used the lower cost option. Now because of greed and in the spirit make more,spend less or planet is in jepordy

    This is heartbreaking. There is a difference between an accident and an incident…accidents are unavoidable but incidents are not. Incidents result from careless indifference to generally accepted standards of prudent behavior. Failing to follow safe practices on an oil rig leads to incidents.
    I hope that innocent franchise owners who sell, hopefully not for much longer, BP products will be able to be compensated fully by BP
    If nothing else, a devasting boycott of BP may serve as a warning to other oil companies.
    Also, let’s all see what we can do to drive less and buy less transported items.

    June 7, 2010 at 2:29 am

    Boycotting them will only stop the income to pay those offset by the spill. Also I just hope no one has an accident with me that wants to boycot them cause I will make them pay forever for having an accident with me. People accidents happen that is why there accidents. They are not obligated to pay one penny to anyone they are doing it out of the goodness of their heart. They are only responsable for 75 million if they so choose. So think about it if you ever have an accident I bet you would never pay anything over the cap set by laws yourself.

  17. June 7, 2010 at 9:40 am

    Hi dear! I am against BP not just cos they pollute our oceans but also because so many of petroleum-based products are in lip balms, cosmetics and what-not. Seriously, crude oil in psoriascis cream NEVER did a thing for my skin problem.

    Benzene, which is cancer-causing, is derived from crude oil, etc.

    This BP led disaster is an excellent commentary on the problems in US society today and to varying degrees other parts of the world. Our insatiable appetite for things that are not good for us from oil to fast food to entertainment have degraded American society. We support greed, ignorance and slothfulness over moderation, knowledge and health and fitness. Heads need to roll and we as a consuming and voting public in a democracy need to act to toss out those who work against the good of the whole and the underlying values the US was founded upon. That means careless and reckless CEOS need to go as do politicians who act for self-interests rather than serving as statesmen and women. We had the beginnings of a revolution with the last presidential election. But it was just a beginning and it is time for the citizenry to act for the health and wellbeing of the entire country. Enough is enough with quick fix money ventures, sprawl, gluttony and entertainment that take us away from prudent and fulfilling life respectful of our surroundings, all ages and all abilities. What we have on earth belongs and returns to earth after we use it or after we die. We are temporary visitors in our bodies and we do not have the right to trash the environment for all living beings that come after us. So hold a vigil, but understand that is but a minor symbolic effort. Boycott BP and other businesses with questionable practices, write letters, support political reform, vote out of office politicians who act for self-interest, stop spending money on frivolous entertainment, get fit, go to work for organizations that contribute to the betterment of society and engage in civil disobedience to send a message that the time has come to change what we value and how we go about living.

    Let’s not forget that Goldman Sachs SOLD OFF 44% of their BP stocks well ahead of the Gulf oil spill. What did they know that we did not know? Two possible answers: 1) The spill already happened and BP didn’t tell anyone except their “friends”. 2) and worse, the Gulf oil spill is a tactic to gain support for the Carbon tax that the globalists want to use to fund their agenda of control. We need to ask Goldman Sachs, “Why in the heck did you sell off about 1/3 of your BP stock holdings?”. We demand answers, NOW! Employees were also forced to sign forms declaring ignorance regarding Gulf oil rig explosion deaths before they were allowed to return home from the rig after the explosion. What do they know that we do not know?

  21. June 9, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    Unbelievable! Did the administration somehow think they could conceal the extent of the catastrophe? In the first place effects of the disaster are visible to people who live near the Gulf. Did they imagine somehow they could prevent the press from covering it by getting BP and the Coast Guard to keep them out? Or did they think they could influence the press coverage to prevent most Americans from understanding the true national and even global effects of BP’s malfeasance? Did they think the oil might not spread to Alabama and Florida beaches where there would it would affect more tourists?

    Stop Gulf Oil Flow- Ecological & Economic Genocide?
    It is a timeless struggle, the battle between good and evil and the balancing of the Yen and the Yang.

    Democracy and Freedom are a gift from the Gods: governance for and by the people; one citizen, one vote. With it humans can advance and evolve society into an age of humanitarianism, science, renewable energy and live in harmony with Earth and other humans.

    Enlightenment is the good things in life that humans universally share and it is true there is a majority of good people in every society around the World.
    Evil forces are Totalitarians who have no respect for other humans or the World they live in. This evil minority is subhuman and will drive humanity back into the dark ages with their lust for Greed and power.

    The Totalitarians are evil and powerful and as you know, much human suffering occurs during their reign. When we talk of (world government and control) the struggle for Democracy and freedom of the majority takes hundreds of years and millions of lives to get society back on the “good” path.

    Hell! Today, “the American people” are losing their Democracy and they are running out of time and may never be in control again; the Totalitarian bastards will destroy the World with their evil ways rather than be controlled.

    This brings us around to the current ecological and economic genocide in the US and solutions to stop the out of control oil flow in the Gulf.

    Of course, before you can come up with solutions to a problem a person must know the full extent of the damage. How can you do that when all you get from BP and the government is lies? For instance, the wellhead and bore hole are fractured deep into the bore hole. If you seal the top of the BOP the oil will simply flow out of the burst pipe below it. BP and our government have been covering-up that fact.

    The report of another larger wellhead leak and cracks in the sea floor is also kept hidden from the public. The US will not even send their own submersible down to survey the other oil well leaks in the sea floor; some are 8 miles from the blown-out well that BP is stalling on.

    BP and our government are lying to the American people about the full extent of the damage. It is as if BP and the government have their own plans for genocide and World Government and the oil spill is an attack against the American People.

    The degree of stupidity, propaganda and Treason is amazing and they have convinced everyone there is nothing anyone can do to stop the oil flow; that is unadulterated BS!

    The oil flow could have been stopped a month ago using known deep water pile driving technology. A simple solution is to lower a 4’ pipe over the BOP and the bore hole and than drive the pile 200 feet into the sea floor permanently sealing off all of the oil flow. The pipe can then be sealed with concrete and cut off far below the water line. It would take 83 sections of welded 60’ pipe and 80 valves to get to 5,000 feet in depth and the same pile could be used to seal multiple leaks. This is how all of the oil leaks in the Gulf will be stopped next year or 10 years from now.

    Please do not whine that if BP and the government could stop the flow of oil, they would; you are just buying into the propaganda and lies! This is an ecological and economic genocide and Americans are so brainwashed and propagandized they do not realize it!

    It is obvious after examining the facts that Big Oil, World Banksters and our government are on their own itinerary of implementing world governance and destroying our Democracy and Independence; all for our own good, of course!

    I’m getting increasingly uncomfortable seeing the way the US government and media are treating BP. The oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico is obviously a terrible environmental accident. It’s entirely understandable that the people and authorities are upset and want those who made the mistake to put it right. But it is increasingly looking like the US government is deliberately trying to make political capital out of scapegoating a British company and opportunistically running it down for the benefit of American companies.

    Why are they not equally holding responsible other parties- the American Drilling company, Halliburton and the US regulatory authorities?

    Why do they not let all hell break loose when it is an American company causing an environmental disaster in another country? Do you remember Union Carbide’s killing and disabling hundreds of thousands of people in Bhopal, India? They did their very best to wriggle out of responsibility as much as they could- frankly because they didn’t value Indian lives as much as Americans and because India was a weaker country. So how does that compare to their extreme attacks on BP? American beaches and fish are worth much more than hundreds of thousands of Indian humans. Sad but true.

    Will the US be aggressively running down their own companies in future overseas accidents? I doubt it.

    Bp is doing the best that they can to fix the situation and arco and ampm have done everything they possibly can to initiate plans to encourage everyone to help.Am pm in tucson have really down to earth and friendly employees anywhere from single parents to a thriving student. To boycott these stations your not hurting Bp your hurting the employees instead of boycotting think of a solution and submit your ideas by contacting Bp. There are many ways things like this can be fixed but instead of being angry of the Inconvenience think of what you can do to make a difference. God will see this through. The president is looking to find a way for taxpayers to pay more by pollution laws . I believe he is agood president and is trying to win the hearts of many but raising taxes hurts the poor and the working family. Isn’t the fact that they are going to clean this ginormous spill enough and pay for damages with billions of dollars! I wont even make that much in my lifetime!;)

    The outrage is understandable, and BP is a horrible multinational, but there are two facts that must be faced:

    1. All large (horrible multinational) oil companies essentially operate the same way IF THEY ARE ALLOWED TO.

    2. When they can’t, as in some countries, they operate with stricter safety measures AS BP DOES IN NORWAY.

    Thus, the fault lies with governments and how they regulate the activities of these beasts.

    Obama had just recently had oil industry briefs and agreed to extensive offshore drilling, after saying initially he was against it. In fact, he agreed to BP doing further drilling SHORTLY AFTER THE GULF BLOWOUT. He backtracked for obvious political expediency. BP greatly padded the Obama election campaign.

    We don’t elect BP executives or other mad dogs, but we elect our ‘leaders’ in part to muzzle those beasts.

    In the end, the only thing a boycott against BP will do is hurt the little people, like the guy who works in the am/pm.

    Speaking as a Gulf Coast resident, I have to say that a boycott on BP brands is counterproductive to the goal of ecological restoration in the area. The fact of the matter is that while BP is a negligent, unfeeling entity, they ARE the ones footing the bill for cleanup. If they go under, no private organization with their kind of financial resources will be willing to pick up where they left off – and after the response to Katrina, nobody here wants the federal government put in charge of any large scale operations in Louisiana. So as much as I hate to say it, the Gulf coast region would be best served by a swell of support for BP gas and other products… at least, until they’re finished cleaning up their mess. When that happens, you’re more than welcome to starve them to death.

    We need to focus on a positive outcome and that is what will happen.
    Everything begins in our thoughts and we should focus them on cleaning the oceans of all this pollution. I have made a short mind movie to help me with that and hope you can join too

    In 1988 off the Scottish coast 167 men died from an explosion on the US Occidental Petroleum (Oxy) rig Piper Alpha. There was shock, horror and sympathies expressed in the media and by politicians and the population at large. No media feeding freezing milking the story; no politicans or members of the public making blatant ego-boosting proclaimations; no hounding of any Oxy executive and certainly no outcry to have Oxy closed down. At a subsequent Scottish inquiry Oxy were severely criticised for flaws in their safety management, but it was deemed an accident and no criminal charges were brought. The accident was estimated to have cost Oxy over $1 billion, including about $183 million in settlements. I mention this because I am old enough to recall it. It may also explain why I am less than impressed by the contrasting treatment of BP.
