Total chaos at Shell’s AGM as 70+ activists bring meeting to complete standstill, chairman McKenzie unable to restore order

Reports are coming in that about 70 people have taken over Shell’s AGM and brough the meeting to a complete standstill.

Shell Chairman Sir Andrew McKenzie was forced to halt the meeting, taking place in London this morning. He is currently sitting behind his desk on stage with no action taken.

Numerous activists are accusing Shell’s board and shareholders of “ignoring the United Nations” and “ignoring ordinary people”.

McKenzie is trying to restore order, without success so far.

“I have listened to you very patiently to you now, for half an hour, I apologise to the shareholders for delay,” McKenzie said moments ago. He is suspending the meeting for 20 minutes.

One shareholder is heard shouting: “Shell forever.”

Meanwhile, dozens of protestors are heard singing “you got blood on your hand, we will stop you” while others are chanting “Shame on Shell, Shell must fall.”

Activists are seen in heated discussions with some shareholders, with one activists now shouting: “We will make it impossible for you to exist, we will make it impossible for you to function.”

There are also dozens of protestors outside the building, equally chanting “Shell must fall.”

It seems a lack of security means no action is taken, so far.
