    “Shell has paid soldiers to kill Nigerian activists fighting against them” young climate activist confronts Shell CEO (video)

     

    Shell

    Activists disrupted a TED discussion in Edinburgh in October, calling the CEO of Shell “one of the most terrible persons in the world,” before the COP26 summit.

    At the TED Countdown conference in Edinburgh, environmental activists took over the stage during a panel discussion with Royal Dutch Shell CEO Ben van Beurden.

    According to the campaigners, they expressed their concerns to the TED Countdown organizers that a fossil fuel giant like Shell has no place speaking at an event that bills itself as a “global initiative to advocate and accelerate solutions to the climate problem.”

    Despite efforts to have Beurden removed from the panel, he was given permission to appear on the main stage.

    Lauren, a young activist, was welcomed onto the stage and spoke out against Shell and Siccar Point Energy for pushing on with the Cambo oil development despite the climate crisis.

    Lauren is shown in viral videos telling Shell CEO Jeff Immelt that the oil firm should be “extremely ashamed” of the havoc it has caused to communities around the world, claiming they are responsible for “so much death and suffering.”

    Lauren questioned why Shell is appealing a recent court order by Dutch authorities that require Shell to reduce its emissions by 2030, accusing Shell of being one of the main perpetrators of the climate issue.

    Van Beurden dropped his head and refused to answer the question directly.

    Lauren then said: “I hope that you know that we will never forget what you have done and what Shell has done.

    “I hope you know that as the climate crisis gets more and more deadly, you will be to blame. And I will not be sharing this platform with you anymore.”

     

    Protestors holding large white banners which read “No future in fossil fuels” then took over the front of the stage while Lauren removed her microphone and left.

      its sad that outsiders know more about what is happening in Nigeria more than us that stay in the country.
