Activists from BP or not BP? staged their 40th and most daring intervention at the British Museum early in the morning, the day before a massive protest likely to attract 1000 supporters on Saturday 8th Feb.

Protesting BP sponsorship of the Troy: Myth and Reality exhibition, they delivered a huge wooden Trojan Horse directly into the courtyard of the museum, catching security off guard.

The horse is large enough for several people to lock on inside, and they are planning to stay there overnight so as to act as a central information hub for the hundreds of protesters expected on Saturday.
