Activists demand Shell to halt its climate wrecking activities
Friends of the Earth |4 April 2018
Today Milieudefensie/Friends of the Earth Netherlands launched a groundbreaking new campaign. Shell is destroying the climate so we are taking them to court. Friends of the Earth International and many groups across the federation are supporting this legal action to stopping the company from polluting the planet.
We need your help to make this campaign big:
– Help us spread the word today via social media using hashtag #stopShell (example tweets at the end of this e-mail)
– Add your name to support the case against Shell by signing the support statement and ask your supporters to sign it as well!
– If you are a Dutch citizen, join our case as co-plaintiff
Shell has known for over 30 years that its business model causes catastrophic climate change and instead of taking action, Shell has misled the public on climate change and it continues to oppose effective climate policies around the globe.
Shell claims that it supports the Paris Agreement, but instead it continues to drill for more oil and gas. Find out more about the activities of Shell in your country on Shellwatch.nl
Today we are demanding Shell to put a halt to its climate wrecking activities. We give them eight weeks to respond to our demands. You can find the letter we send to Shell today here
This morning we announced our plans at a totally packed press conference in Amsterdam. You can find the video of this press conference with English subtitles here after 14pm.
Press releases, infographics, video‘s and more background information (in English and Spanish) can be downloaded via this link: https://owncloud.milieud
We would be very happy if you help us spread these materials!
