Shell’s spying was not restricted merely to its  perceived enemies, such as Greenpeace. Shell has even spied on it own employees, all of them.

By John Donovan

A recently published 54 page report by Gary Ruskin – Spooky Business : Corporate Espionage Against Nonprofit Organizations – focuses on corporate espionage carried out by major companies against non-profit organizations, activists and whistleblowers.

On page 3, Shell is named as one of the major companies that has engaged in such activity:

Many of the world’s largest corporations and their trade associations – including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Walmart, Monsanto, Bank of America, Dow Chemical, Kraft, Coca- Cola, Chevron, Burger King, McDonald’s, Shell, BP, BAE, Sasol, Brown & Williamson and E.ON — have been linked to espionage or planned espionage against nonprofit organizations, activists and whistleblowers.

Specific information about Shell’s undercover operations is featured on Page 31.

I wish the person responsible for the report had contacted me.

I could have supplied a volume of information, including Shell internal emails, providing irrefutable evidence of corporate espionage activities by Royal Dutch Shell over the last two decades that has not been mentioned in the report.

Shell’s spying was not restricted merely to its  perceived enemies, such as Greenpeace. Shell has even spied on it own employees, all of them.

    This is only the very tip of a ginormous racketeering and corporate espionage scandal!!! Baltimore law firm Semmes, Bowen & Semmes has very forcefully threatened me with “SEVERE CONSEQUENCES” if I tell anyone anything about any of this…
