Slam Shell 2013 – Shell’s greenwashing event fails

slamshell

In December 2013 Shell invited people and the press to show that their company is not as bad as we think. They are of course an environmentally friendly company and never spill oil. Every year 100.000 tons of oil are leaking into the oceans and destroying the habitats of humans and animal-life. Furthermore Shell plans to drill for oil and gas in the Arctic which is a huge misery in my opinion. So they need to get stopped. Two activists of project »Slam Shell« showed how.

With the »Eco Marathon« Campaing Shell wants to distract people from the damages they do to the environment and the people in countries like Nigeria. To stop Shell and raise attention Peng! Collective started with the »Slam Shell« Project and I think they did a really good job:

I hope to see more of these very good actions. If you want to help the Peng! Collective you can do so by visiting their website and donate. All the money will be used for actions like these one and workshops for groups.
