Right now six volunteers – including USnative Aliyah Field- are far out in the Pacific on the Greenpeace ship Esperanza. They and the ship’s crew are following Shell’s giant oil rig as it heads north to Alaska. Their aim is to draw the world’s attention to Shell’s reckless plan to drill the Arctic.

This is a BIG story. And we need your help to make it even BIGGER.

Heres the plan:

The media is picking up on this story – now we need to get it to readers. By using your own networks, YOU can spreadthe news about Greenpeace, Shell, and the Arctic. If enough of us do this, it will amplify the story so much that it will take on a new momentum: Governments will notice, Shell will notice and their shareholders will notice.

And its really easy. Here’s how you do it:

Step 1. Jump over to Google News and set up a Google News Alert search.

Step 2.Click on options, set it up like this, and then hit the blue CREATE ALERT button.


Step 3: Click on the links to stories Google will then send you and then use the share buttons on those pages to tweet and share the story – and add our hashtag #thecrossing – so that your tweets appear in our feed.

And that’s it!
