The Reclaim Shakespeare Company perform a re-interpretation of Shakespeare's Macbeth in the British Museum's Great Court to end their season of storming BP-sponsored stages and performing anti-BP playlets in a Bardic style. This flashmob of several hundred protesters was organised by the Reclaim Shakespeare Company, Rising Tide, Liberate Tate, the UK Tar Sands Network and Art Not Oil in protest at BP's greenwashing its filthy reputation by sponsoring arts and cultural institutions at a time when it has admitted its guilt with a $4 bn fine for the Deepwater Horizon disaster making BP the largest criminal business in history.
