Human rights campaigners staged a symbolic “die-in” outside transnational oil giant Total’s London office in Wednesday over the company’s ties to the Myanmar military dictatorship.

The protest, part of a worldwide day of action targeted at the French-based company, saw demonstrators in Cavendish Square dressed in blood-soaked bandages holding placards reading: “Total out of Burma.”

The die-in was held on the same day as Total’s third-quarter profits rose 29 per cent thanks to record oil prices and increased production.
