Stop Shell from drilling in the Arctic in 2014

Thursday, Feb. 27th, 9pm

This is an online event.

"As a senior Shell official reminded the world last week, drilling for oil in Alaska’s Chukchi Sea is “the single largest exploration prospect in the Shell Group.” The stakes couldn’t be higher for Shell or the environment.
