San Francisco Gas Stations Targeted By Protesters On BP Oil Spill Anniversary

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – At least four San Francisco gas stations were the targets of a group protesting the BP oil spill on Wednesday, the one year anniversary of the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

Three Shell stations were hit as well as an independent station on Castro and Market. Three people with their faces covered locked the pumps at the station, left a flyer and moved on.

KCBS’ Bob Melrose Reports:

The manager at the independent RC gasoline station at Castro and Market said it was unexpected.

“I got a call around 7 a.m. from one of the employees that stated that our pumps were locked and we couldn’t sell gas,” she said. “There were some guys with masks on that came to lock up the dispensers and put a note up.”

That note read “We act against oil that kills humanity and the planet.”

No pumps were damaged and there was never an attempt to set anything on fire.

The events were caught on surveillance video which has been turned over to the San Francisco Police Department.
