Shell Oil - corporate criminals

Oil company business as usual

Blood and oil in Ireland

We hear about a looming energy shortage and we see high fuels prices. The media talks endlessly about global warming, but when do we hear about what goes on “behind the scenes” of oil and gas extraction projects?

Shell Oil, one of the most notorious thug corporations, routinely uses violence and threats of violence to guarantee its profits.

Here were see a well trained group of thugs, paid for at taxpayers expense, attack unarmed demonstrators. Local politicians? Nowhere to be seen.
