Activists from Greenpeace Southeast Asia - Philippines unfurled a banner reading “PEOPLE AND PLANET, NOT PROFIT” from Shell’s Batangas oil refinery today, sending a sharp reminder to Shell to attend upcoming hearings into the responsibility of big fossil fuel companies for climate-related human rights harms.Another team of activists delivered a letter demanding Shell to own up to their responsibility for contributions to the climate crisis and show up at the first hearing taking place in March. The hearings are part of a world-first investigation led by the Commission on Human Rights of the Philippines into how climate-related human rights harms are fueled by their business of extracting and marketing fossil fuels.
