ShellNo Action Council says
While President Obama meets with world leaders in Anchorage for the GLACIER Conference, the ShellNo Action Council will hold a funeral procession and “Die In” for the Arctic to highlight Obama’s hypocrisy. He gives permission to Shell to drill in the Arctic while simultaneously saying he wants to protect the Arctic and the climate.

Join us on Monday August 31st, from 11:30am to 1:30pm, beginning at Occidental Park and ending outside the federal building on 2nd Ave and Madison St. We will march in funeral procession from Occidental Park to the federal building where we will stage a “Die In” to highlight the grim reality of Arctic drilling that will lead to over 2 degrees planetary warming causing climate catastrophe.

ShellNo Action Council is standing in solidarity with ShellNo! Alaska’s four demands of President Obama:
1. A rapid transition to renewable energy;
2. Cessation of exploratory drilling in the Arctic;
3. Protection of indigenous peoples' rights and communities;
4. Binding agreements at the 2015 U.N. Climate Change Conference that are on par with what science has shown is necessary for a livable future.
