This video about Nigeria is called Shell Oil – The Awful Truth.

Shell has deleted the campaign movie ‘Shell CEO, Uncensored’ by Dutch Friends of the Earth from YouTube. This appears from an e-mail which YouTube sent to the ‘Worse than Bad’ campaign of the environmental organization. In the successful satirical movie, Friends of the Earth in the Netherlands pokes fun at Shell CEO Peter Voser because of the oil spill caused by the company in Nigeria. The video was watched over 25,000 times and can now only be seen on Dumpert.nl. On May 4, they copied the video and put it here. Friends of the Earth in the Netherlands are considering a counterclaim against YouTube.
For some time, Friends of the Earth in the Netherlands have been demanding that Shell should clean up all its oil spills in the Niger delta. But the only thing which the corporation has removed is a critical YouTube video which is part of the ‘Worse than Bad’ campaign worsethanbad.org.
Also at the share owners’ meeting last Tuesday in the Circus Theatre in Scheveningen, Shell CEO Peter Voser dodged all requests by Friends of the Earth in the Netherlands to start with cleaning up the area affected by the company. Even about the urgent advice of the UNEP environmental agency of the UN to invest $ 1 billion into a fund to clean up Nigeria, Shell has been in denial by now for almost a year.
When I logged in at YouTube where the satirical Shell video used to be, I got the message “We are sorry. This video has been removed by the user [meaning Friends of the Earth in the Netherlands])”. That is untrue, as not Friends of the Earth in the Netherlands deleted that video there, but YouTube under pressure from Shell.
So, ‘Shell CEO, Uncensored’ has been censored.
At least, Shell this time did not use their Nigerian death squad gangsters against Friends of the Earth in the Netherlands; they pay those gangsters for violence against Nigerian farmers, environmentalists, etc.[sarcasm off]
