And again: The people vs. Shell

type: NGO, Project, Protest
by: Deniz Zehra Tavli

Shell’s Arctic drilling fleet is on the move. The drillship, Noble Discoverer and the oil rig Polar Pioneer are on their way to the Alaskan Arctic via Seattle. We aren’t going to allow them to slip into the far north unnoticed.

The company that operated the Noble Discoverer and the infamous Kulluk oil rig for Shell, pleaded guilty to 8 environmental and maritime felonies in 2014.

Other oil companies have stated that Arctic drilling is too risky, and have even allowed their own permits to expire. Does that sound like a company that should be trusted with the future of the Arctic?

Since the drillships are on their way and are going to leave a huge mess to clean after themselves, let's put the biggest cleaning rag together and send it to Shell with a clear message. Create your own rag with an individual message on it to the ones who make decisions about our planet's future without asking us!
