Shell forces workers to attend Trump rally

This 18 August 2019 CNN TV video from the USA says about itself:

Union workers told to attend Trump speech or lose pay

Workers at the Pennsylvania petrochemical plant where President Donald Trump spoke were told that if they didn’t attend the event, they either had to use paid time off or receive no pay for the day.

The CNN caption to this YouTube video does not mention who owns that Monaca, Pennsylvania petrochemical plant. Which produces plastic. It is Shell oil multinational corporation. Yes, the same Shell that covered up the climate change science which Donald Trump hates so much. The same Shell which wants oil drilling in the oil spill prone Arctic environment. The same Shell which causes very damaging earthquakes with its drilling in Groningen province in the Netherlands and elsewhere. The same Shell which hires thugs in Ireland for violence against local small farmers and other opponents of its environmentally hazardous plans. The same Shell which pollutes Nigeria. The same Shell which bribed Nigerian soldiers and hired thugs for violence against Nigerian environmentalists. The same Shell which profited from George W Bush’s and Tony Blair’s Iraq war. The same Shell advising NATO on neo-colonial and potentially nuclear wars.

Workers were ordered not to protest or show any ‘resistance’ at Trump rally in Pennsylvania: here.

President Trump trashed union leadership at a Shell plant even after management forced its unionized workers to attend one of his hate speeches at their plant, or lose pay.

Trump visited a Shell petrochemical plant in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this past Tuesday, but today the news slipped out about the coercive methods used to guarantee a larger audience for his maniacal rantings.
