‘Risking Ruin’: new report profiling Shell’s dangerous developments

The UK Tar Sands Network is happy to announce the release of a new report “Risking Ruin: Shell’s dangerous developments in the Tar Sands, Arctic and Nigeria”, in partnership with the Indigenous Environmental Network and Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation.

The report profiles Indigenous communities impacted by Shell’s operations in Canada’s Alberta Tar Sands, Aamjiwnaang First Nation’s territory in Ontario, Alaska’s Arctic Ocean and Africa’s Niger Delta. It argues that the impacts of Shell’s destructive activities outweigh the benefits and expose the company to both reputational damage and political risk, including litigation.

A PDF is available here and hard copies will be available at ‘Get the Shell Out‘ 18th May 2012, Toynbee Hall, 7.30pm.
