Help send an Indigenous delegation to the Shell AGM

The Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation has joined forces with the UK Tar Sands Network and the Indigenous Tar Sands Campaign to attend the Shell Annual General Shareholder Meeting in the Hague, Netherlands this May to send a message to Shell executives and shareholders that enough is enough.

Shell’s Extreme Energy projects are the “bottom of the barrel” kind of oil and gas projects. Many of the last pristine areas on earth are within Indigenous lands. Extreme energy includes fracking, tar sands, and deep sea off-shore drilling. Indigenous Peoples bear the brunt of extreme energy development through loss of land, clean water, and clean air. Many still live sustainably off the land.

ACFN is working with UK Tar Sands Network and Indigenous Tar Sands Campaign to raise money to support the Indigenous delegation of First Nations and Alaska Natives living at ground zero of Shells fracking, tar sands mining-the largest human development project on earth; and proposed off-shore drilling. Your donation to this campaign will help with airfare so four Indigenous People can attend the Royal Dutch Shell Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the shareholders in The Hague, Netherlands on May 21st, 2013.  

Our goals are for Indigenous leaders to speak for themselves, to hold the shareholders accountable and put a human face to the impacts of extreme energy development. With your help we will bring international attention and remind the world there are better options than extreme energy development that destroys Indigenous communities!
