Climate Activists Declare “Shell Must Fall” Outside Shareholders’ Meeting

HeadlineMay 20, 2020

In the Netherlands, dozens of climate activists followed social distancing guidelines Tuesday as they protested outside the headquarters of Shell Oil in The Hague, where the fossil fuel giant held its annual shareholder meeting. This is Greenpeace organizer Helena Spiritus.

Helena Spiritus: “We’re in front of Shell’s headquarters because we are in the middle of a climate crisis, we’re in the middle of a biodiversity crisis and a pandemic, and Shell is still behaving as it’s business as usual.”
