“We bit off more than we could chew."
When thirty-five Greenpeace protestors raided London's International Petroleum Exchange
to mark the first day of the Kyoto protocol
coming into effect, the last thing they expected was a lesson in the finer points of beatdown administration at the hands of drunken oil traders
