London, 20/09/2015. Today a candle-light vigil was held outside the Shell HQ in Waterloo to protest against the oil giant plan to drill the Arctic to extract oil. The demonstration was also attended by "Aurora", a giant (the size of a Double Decker bus) people-powered polar bear made by Greenpeace activists. From the organiser Facebook page: <<The Arctic sea ice is melting. Global temperatures are rising. And yet Shell wants to drill in the Arctic's pristine environment for more of the oil that caused the ice to melt in the first place. More than 7 million people have joined the movement to save the Arctic. Two weeks ago, Aurora, a giant polar bear representing the Arctic and the strength of our movement visited Shell's HQ demanding that Shell stop drilling in her home. Two weeks down the line, Shell still refuses to pull out of the Arctic or engage in a conversation to hear out what millions have to say. Earlier this week, we heard that this year was the fourth lowest sea ice minimum on record. All the four lowest on record have happened since 2007 and scientists are telling us that this is a clear indicator of climate change. […] live music with folk band Ys to warm your ears. […]>>.<br />
