Extinction Rebellion at Shell

Shell South Bank, London. Mon 15 Apr 2019



 Activists have daubed the Shell HQ with spray-chalk slogans. This is a 'CO2 Crime Scene'

 Shell are committing Ecocide, exploring for, promoting and selling fossil fuels which have caused huge amounts

 of CO2 to be released. We need to move urgently away from fossil fuels, and Shell and other oil and coal companies

 lobby governments here and around the world to enable them to continue their polluting activities

 Shell also are responsible for human rights abuses in countries where they extract oil - such as Nigeria where

 they were behind the "unlawful killings, rape, torture, the burning of villages" by the Nigerian military against

 community protests, including the murder of 9 Ogoni men, including writer and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa.

 

 'Shell Kills'
     
 'Ecocide'. The glass of the door was smashed deliberately to try to ensure that the activists get a trial before a jury where they hope to be able to raise

the issues which led them to protest against Shell.
