Greenpeace protest in the Hague during a shareholders meeting of the 'Koninklijke Nederlandse Petroleum Maatschappij' (Royal Dutch Petrol Company), the most important shareholder of the Royal Shell Group. The idea to let the oil extraction platform Brent Spar sink into the sea, and the oil leaks in Nigeria have turned Shell into a big polluter. Greenpeace wants Shell to invest in sustainable energy sources. The banner reads: "Stop oil, go solar". The activists, who own 5 shares of Shell, were allowed to speak during the Shell meeting. But chairman C. Herkströter took the initiative by opening the meeting with a talk about the social responsibility of the oil company: "The behavioural code of Shell employees cannot offer an answer to every problem, every difference in our point of view or conflicts in interest, with which they are confronted."
