(The ad Saudi Arabia doesn't want you to see) Ethical Oil

If video fails, click here or go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2011/09/ad-saudi-arabia-doesnt-want-you-to-see.html 
Fact. Last year we bought over four hundred million barrels of oil from Saudi Arabia. We bankrolled a state that doesn't allow women to drive. Doesn't allow them to leave their homes - or work - without their male guardians' permission. And a state where a woman's testimony only counts for a half of a man's. Why are we paying their bills... And funding their oppression? Today there's a better way. Ethical oil. From Canada's oil sands. Ethical Oil. A choice we have to make.
UPDATE: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, an oil rich dictatorship, has moved to censor this Canadian television ad that educates Canadian consumers about the oppression of women in Saudi Arabia and the role played by Saudi oil exports in enabling this oppression.
