Protest Against Shell Sponsorship of the Science Museum
We support UKSCN London in their effort to protest the Shell sponsorship of the London Science Museum. If you are in London, we encourage you to join their efforts!
Please read their call o action carefully: “We wrote a letter to the Science Museum calling on them to end the Shell sponsorship of their new exhibition on carbon capture and storage. Their response wasn’t good enough. Join us outside the Science Museum on the 22nd of May at 2pm to demand the Science Museum #DropShell Notes: Please remember to wear a mask and respect social distancing. We are asking groups to not bring any branded placards etc.”
