[Expect panic buying which only leads to more money for the Oil Companies & The Goverment!]
The following statement is released on 10th December 2007 at 10:15Hrs
Transaction2007 have decided to release the date and time of protest action earlier than scheduled. This is to enable the motorist and public to better prepare themselves for the coming action.
A date of Saturday 15th December 2007 at 10:00am has been decided for protest action. This date was decided by members as the best possible to enable those who would normally be working during the week to attend. This action will be initiated at a refinery or storage depot somewhere near you. Anyone wishing to support action is requested to make your way there at the alotted time. Transaction again wish to emphasise the importance of legal protesting.
If there is anything in this story and the people concerned are anything like the last lot that tried something like this then I will certainly have no sympathy for them.
Many of them are self employed truckers and farmers and the last group of people to have any sympathy for anyone but themselves. The only principle they have is self interest and nothing else.
If you ever needed to break a strike, drive through a picket line etc. then these are the very truckers who would be glad to do the job for you, at an inflated price that is.
It is the international oil market that has put up the price of oil not the government. There is no way that even this government wants high oil prises at this time, they are unpopular enough as it is.
