On 2. March 2021 we met for a wonderful discussion on Shell’s legacy and ways to continue our collective resistance against toxic mulitnationals!
Shell’s headquarter is leaving the Netherlands, at a time when its social license to operate started to be questioned and eroded by a large number of people through a variety of different campaigns. It is leaving behind a rich history of more than 40 years of resistance against the company as well as a series of legal proceedings in different Dutch courts, from Groningen to The Hague.
We met with Chihiro Geuzebroek (Aralez), Olanrewaju Suraju (HEDA), Femke Sleegers (Reclame Fossielvrij), Marlijn Dingshoff (Amnesty International) and Hilde Brontsema (Milieudefensie).
We discussed challenges, ideas and ways to take action from court cases to direct action. From protecting the deep sea to self and community care, from Corruption to the role of uplifting indigenous voices.
If you want to learn more about the connection between corruption and the just transition, we have published just the zine for you!
Thank you to all attendees and especially all speakers!
