(en) Czech, AFED: The end of oil, the end of Shell [machine translation]

Date Sun, 24 May 2020 07:25:44 +0300

We are reporting on the Limits initiative on protests against Shell ---- Shell is one of the dirtiest fossil firms in history. Since the 1980s, Shell owners have known that their activities are causing a climate crisis. Yet, all over the world, Shell is involved in devastating the planet and fighting human rights. Read, for example, how this company was involved in the judicial murder of Ken Saro Wiwa . ---- Recently, this company is asking for public money in order to survive. At the same time, if we want to avoid the worst effects of the climate crisis, then oil, coal and gas must remain underground. We cannot save the oil industry, on the contrary, we must get rid of it and help the people who are employed in the oil industry. Shell employees, who earn an average of 170 times less than the CEO, are the same victims as the worst affected by the climate crisis.

Today (Tuesday, May 19), together with the Extinction Rebellion and the University for Climate Movement, we organized a protest at three gas stations in Prague. Companies like Shell are making money from destroying the planet for the huge profits of several shareholders who met at the Hague General on May 19.

However, protests took place elsewhere. Representatives of the Shell Must Fall coalition protest directly in The Hague, the Netherlands, where the Shell General Assembly is being held. In Groningen and Amsterdam, petrol stations are blocked by Code Rood and Extinction Rebellion Amsterdam, and in German cities by Ende Gelände!

Together we demand:

1) Termination of Shell's activities and its dissolution by any legal, economic or political means

2) A just transformation for workers in the fossil industry and compensation for all the people who have been harmed by Shell's activity in history.

3) Energy democracy, ie the introduction of a decentralized network of renewable resources owned by municipalities, communities and local cooperatives.
