Staff at the British Museum have added their voices to a growing outcry against oil company BP's sponsorship of the organisation.
Earlier this month, activists snuck a giant Trojan Horse sculpture into the museum's courtyard to protest BP's sponsorship of an exhibition about Troy.

Members of the PCS union’s culture group, which represents 4,000 workers across the UK’s leading cultural sites, said the British Museum "owes it to its staff, its visitors and its future to play a responsible role in the greatest challenge facing society".
“It is not true that we cannot afford to refuse BP’s oil money. In fact, we cannot afford to accept it.”
