Last August, Equal Exchangers Meghan, Casey, Jim, Ellen, and Lincoln joined the ranks of hundreds of other activists doing their part to stop Shell Oil from drilling in the Arctic. (If you didn’t have a chance to read their gripping stories of the Shell No! Greenpeace action in Portland, click here to do so!)
So, congratulations to our Equal Exchange West Coast team, and all the other kayaktivists, general activists, and other leaders for winning the fight! Shell has abandoned plans to drill for extreme oil off the coast of Alaska!!
