Dear Mr Clooney
As you may have noticed from the New York Times article (“The Sultan of Brunei: Opulence, Power and Hard-Line Islam“) Shell is the main financial supporter of the Brunei despot and has been for many years. They are as close as thieves. Shell gave him a $500,000 wedding present (bribe).
EXTRACT FROM THE NYT ARTICLE:
Powered by the oil company Brunei Shell Petroleum — Brunei was nicknamed the “Shellfare state” for its entitlement programs — the country of about 430,000 people remained relatively secluded compared with its neighbors.
Given these circumstances, why not call for a boycott of Shell’s 44,000 gas stations worldwide?
It would generate massive publicity instantly ramping up your campaign and punishing Shell for ignoring previous warnings over the years about its support for this evil regime. Many of them published on my website royaldutchshellplc.com.
