Is Royal Dutch Shell a racist company?

From an outspoken former employee of Shell Oil USA

The association between Dutch companies and West Africa is centuries old. It began in earnest with the slave trade. Dutch companies were the first and largest of the slave traders. Of course, the justification of the concept of slavery was based on Biblical interpretations of the relationship between the white man and the black man, with the black man being considered to be racially inferior to the white man.

That philosophy of the white man towards the black man, and the inferior race of the ‘red man’ of the America’s, both of which were enslaved in large numbers, eventually led to the development of term ‘under men’, a concept the Nazi’s later picked up and use in their ideology of Aryan racial superiority. read more

Shell frozen out of the Arctic Ocean

From an outspoken former employee of Shell Oil USA

John,

First it was a problem with the Royal Dutch Shell’s clean air permits, now it is a problem with the government’s ‘Bush era’ environmental impact statement. And the U.S. government doesn’t seem to know when that impact statement will be completed. Maybe it should have been done right the first time.

However, does anyone get the idea that maybe the Fed’s really don’t want RD Shell to do any drilling in the Beaufort Sea this year?

This is no surprise. An ‘accident/incident’ by RD Shell and their antiquated drilling fleet that would lead to any significant spill would trigger a fire storm of criticism and would be politically disastrous for the Obama administration. And neither the Fed’s or Shell have the assets in place to clean up any incident of ‘significance’. And clearly the administration does not trust Shell anymore than they trust BP. But then, why should they? I wonder what DoI learned, or is learning, from the Navy’s investigation of Shell? read more

Corrib Shell pipeline approval sparks Irish uprising


Daily protest at the gates of Shell’s proposed Corrib Gas Refinery in Ireland

By John Donovan

Reproduced below is a stirring call to arms issued today by the “Rossport Solidarity Camp” in Ireland.

On Thursday 20th January An Bord Pleanala announced their decision to approve the Shell high pressure raw gas pipeline. The decision shows the farce of project splitting, which allows authorities to pass dangerous sections of projects without going through a rigorous planning process. This is the last chance to resist this flawed project. read more

Shell questioned on oil spills in Nigeria

WASHINGTON, Jan. 25 (UPI) — Royal Dutch Shell has a disastrous legacy of environmental damage through its lengthy involvement in the Nigerian oil sector, advocacy groups charge.

Shell faces questions Wednesday before the Dutch Parliament regarding its activity in the oil-rich Niger Delta region. Amnesty International and Friends of the Earth International announced they had filed formal complaints with the British and Dutch governments over Shell’s failure to take responsibility for the majority of the oil pollution in the region. read more

Shell Accused of Misleading Data Over Nigerian Spills

By Eduard Gismatullin – Jan 25, 2011 12:33 PM GMT+0000

Royal Dutch Shell Plc was accused by Amnesty International and Friends of the Earth International of using discredited and misleading information in blaming the majority of oil spills in the Niger Delta on saboteurs.

The two groups said in an e-mailed report today that they filed an official complaint with the U.K. and Dutch governments against Shell over breaches of basic standards for responsible business set out by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Shell denied the allegation. read more

Judge told Shell that ‘they should sue John Donovan in the UK’

By John Donovan

The email printed below from Shell Malaysia whistleblower Dr John Huong (right) to his lawyer, Trevor George De Silva, confirms that the High Court judge dealing with the defamation action brought against Dr Huong by EIGHT Royal Dutch Shell companies, told Shell that “they should sue John Donovan in the UK”.

Since that course of action was not one Shell lawyers wished to pursue, Shell eventually had to settle with Dr Huong. Shell lawyers had also undermined their case by engaging in criminal tampering of evidence to hide important information from the judge. In other words, Shell had perverted the course of justice. read more

Chukchi environmental report delayed

Patti Epler | Jan 24, 2011

The federal government says it’s fallen behind in efforts to complete a final environmental impact statement for a controversial oil and gas lease sale in the Chukchi Sea.

The statement was due to be finished Jan. 21. Instead, a status report filed with the U.S. District Court in Anchorage doesn’t give a date for the environmental impact statement to be released, but says the government will file another status report by Feb. 25.

In 2008, the government sold about $2.6 billion in leases to a number of oil companies, although Royal Dutch Shell was the predominant bidder. But the lease sale was challenged by Native organizations and some environmental groups on the grounds that the original statement didn’t adequately consider the impact of natural gas development in the Chukchi. A federal judge ordered the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to produce a second environmental impact statement that looked at the natural gas issue. read more

Groups file OECD complaint against Royal Dutch Shell

Jan. 24, 2011, 8:36 p.m. EST

By James Herron

LONDON (MarketWatch) — Friends of the Earth and Amnesty International said Tuesday they have filed a complaint against Royal Dutch Shell PLC with the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development, alleging the oil giant has published misleading data about oil spills in Nigeria.

The two groups allege Shell has used “discredited and misleading information to blame the majority of oil pollution on saboteurs in its Niger Delta operations,” and that use of this flawed data breaches the OECD’s guidelines for multinational companies. read more

Shell says Corrib gas will bring 1,000 jobs

23 January 2011 By Nicola Cooke and John Burke

Shell has pledged to create 1,000 jobs this year on works related to the Corrib gas project, which was granted planning permission last week for the final section of the controversial pipeline.

The oil company said that the jobs would arise from the construction of a twin bore tunnel for the pipeline under Sruwaddacon Bay in Co Mayo.

Employees would also be needed for works at the €1 billion gas terminal at Bellanaboy and for an offshore rig which will be constructed this year to check the existing gas wells. read more

Questions raised over Shell sponsorship of Jaipur Literature Festival

Jaipur, January 24, 2011: Vaiju Naravane

The Hindu SET FOR PARADE: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur meet the folk artists who will be participating in the Republic Day Parade, In New Delhi on Monday. Photo: S. Subramanium   Should companies like Shell or Rio Tinto, with a bad reputation for environmental pollution, the violation of workers’ rights and collusion with brutal dictatorships such as that of Augusto Pinochet in Chile or Sani Abacha in Nigeria, be considered acceptable as sponsors by those who run the Jaipur Literature Festival?

 

The question takes on great poignancy since the conclusion of the festival coincides, almost to the day, with hearings in the Dutch parliament on the alleged involvement of the Royal Dutch Shell company in the execution of Nigerian playwright, human rights activist and environmentalist Ken Saro-Wiwa who was put to death with eight others after a hurried military trial in November 1995.

At his trial, Ken Saro Wiwa pointed a finger at Shell for what it had done to his people and his country: “We all stand before history. I and my colleagues are not the only ones on trial. Shell is here on trial…there is no doubt in my mind that the ecological war that the Company has waged in the Delta will be called to question sooner than later and the crimes of that war be duly punished. The crime of the Company’s dirty wars against the Ogoni people will also be punished.” read more
