Take action #tellshell to get out of the Arctic !

Shell has spent $4.5bn buying its way into the Arctic, and the moment of truth has arrived. Right now, two giant drilling vessels are preparing to exploit melting sea ice to drill for more of the oil that is warming our planet in the first place.

The only thing that can stop them is people power, and we have over 800,000 names on our Arctic scroll ready to join us in the fight to Save the Arctic. Our politicians are not listening - they care more about the CEOs of fossil fuel companies than they do about us.

It’s time to take back the power and show what ordinary people can do.

A WORLD IN ACTION

 

 

This time of actions is all about your creativity against corporate greed. The little guys against the giants. Greenpeace will take on Shell across the world but we can’t win this one without you. Because of this we are going to share the tactics Greenpeace has collected over the past 40 years. It’s up to you whether you use them or make up new ones – it’s over to you!


It doesn’t matter exactly what you do as long as you join in. Whether it is hosting parties, hanging on the telephone, rocking social media, creative brand jacking or getting down to some good old fashioned protest we need you to #tellshell to get out of the Arctic.

Want to join all these activists?

We will admit that we do have a few surprises planned for the next days but we want you to be the first to know. Keep checking your emails, the Greenpeace website and facebook and twitter during the week. These are the moments when we can all join together around the world to #tellshell what we think of them. We promise to make sure your messages cannot be ignored.


This  is just the start, but with a growing global movement – people like you and me - drawing a line in the ice and saying: you come no further: we can get Shell out of the Arctic.

Thank you times two million!

Blog entry by Martin Norman | October 4, 2012

Totally saying no to Arctic oil

Blog entry by Ben Ayliffe | September 27, 2012

Has the Key Government lost its moral compass?

Blog entry by Nathan Argent | September 24, 2012

I don’t know about you, but I’m starting wonder whether we're watching the death spiral of a Government that’s lost its purpose and sense of duty. It seems with each day that passes, the Government’s calamitous handling of our...

Commitment to a sustainable peace

Blog entry by Kumi Naidoo | September 24, 2012

Finding heart in the melting Arctic

Blog entry by Sara Ayech | September 20, 2012

The record has already been broken – but it is about to be shattered. This isn't the kind of record you wish to remember and tell your grandchildren about. This is no tale of great sporting achievement like Usain Bolt smashing...

Going to the Arctic to witness history

I’m aboard the Greenpeace ship, the Arctic Sunrise, just out of Tromsø in northern Norway, to  journey far north, to the edge of the Arctic sea ice. We’ll be there for the sea ice minimum, the moment each year where the sea ice...
