Brandalism targeted adverts promoting Shell's sponsorship of British Cycling

May 15, 2024

An activist group has pasted its own artworks over billboards and bus-stops promoting oil company Shell's sponsorship of British Cycling.

Brandalism said the campaign was over what it said was Shell's recent decision to "row back" on climate pledges.

Some billboards show a cyclist drinking oil from a Shell-branded bottle.

Shell said the "misleading" adverts "completely mischaracterised" its partnership.

Today Trans Mountain commenced operations on its new expanded oil pipeline system (TMX). It is a solemn day for us at West Coast Environmental Law, as we have been part of the massive social movement opposing this megaproject for more than 10 years, fighting for climate action, land and water protection, and Indigenous self-determination.

Little could be more idyllic.

Little, says Ubels, could be more under threat.

We must resist the temptation to think that "Canada is different." The analysis and strategic points below definitely apply here, provincially and federally. Organizing our power to replace profit as the goal of society with democratic social and economic planning is the task before us.
