baffling poster

This one has me a little perplexed:

The BP logo dripping in oil is a great image. These posters were up for a couple of weeks and came down just before BP plugged the hole late last week, although that plug may not work. Incidentally, it took them three months - 87 days - to seal it off.
My puzzlement is because the poster creators are anonymous. Googling the tiny tagline to the left - 'beyond pollution' - doesn't reveal who they are. Is this the work of some shy environmental group or could it be the work of another oil firm, or even six of the seven sisters, gloating over their scapegoat sibling?
While I'm pleased to see someone is angry over something worth being angry over, I hope nobody is feeling virtuous by avoiding BP and going to Shell and Mobil.
