Shell Environmental and Human Rights Crimes in Brazil


Hello John and good-afternoon from Brazil!

I don’t know whether you have been told or not but Shell and Basf have come to a judicial agreement and has paid for our rights along with medical assistance for direct former employees and its children for a lifetime.

Thank you so much for your help.

Truly yours,
Manoel Miguel


The factory was built in 1977 by Shell. Dozens of former employees of the plant have been diagnosed with prostate, thyroid and other types of cancer, circulatory, liver and intestinal illnesses, as well as infertility and sexual impotence.
