Shell to Sea Pirates begin Week of Action against Shell’s Solitaire

SHELL TO SEA CAMPAIGN

High Noon at Low Tide – Pirate Flotilla arrives at Glengad to plunder Shell’s plans and commence Shell to Sea Week of Action.

Today at noon a flotilla of sea kayaks reclaimed Glengad beach, Pollathomas, Co Mayo; the landfall site for Shell’s offshore pipeline.

Members of the ‘Great Rebel Raft Regatta’ recently deployed at the E.ON coal fired power station at Kingsnorth in Kent, England, have made their way from Climate Camp UK to Erris, in order to assist Shell to Sea campaigners in their opposition to this pipeline construction at Glengad.

The first wave of the Rebel Regatta arrived today following Marine & Public Information Notices which announced the arrival of the world’s largest pipe-laying vessel, the Solitaire, in Broadhaven Bay, anytime from today onwards. read more

The company’s former CEO, Sir Philip Watts, once claimed that Shell’s commitment to sustainable development and corporate social responsibility were what elevated it above its rivals. That was before he was thrown out of the company for cooking the books. read more

GREENWASH: “SHELL DOES NOT APPEAR TO HAVE LEARNT ITS LESSON”

By Guest Author Dr Arlo Brady

For the second time in the last couple of years the Anglo-Dutch oil giant Shell has found itself at the heart of the debate about greenwash in advertising.
