Shell blocks 70,000 employees from learning about Supreme Court case

Shell Blocks Employee Access to Activist Website

http://murderisbad.com

71,010 employees blocked from tweeting Oprah about Supreme Court murder case

Houston, TX (October 2, 2012) — Early Monday morning, 71,010 Shell employees received an email from the company's "Grassroots Employee Empowerment Division" providing information on Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, a pivotal human rights case being argued in the U.S. Supreme Court. The email contained links to news stories, as well as a tool to help employees tweet their feelings about the case at key US news anchors (and Oprah Winfrey).

The only thing is, Shell has no "Grassroots Employee Empowerment Division," and they don't want publicity for the case. The email was in fact the work of an activist group called People Against Legalizing Murder (PALM), who received the list of Shell emails from what they believe to be a group of disaffected employees. (A similar leak occurred two years ago.)

Within minutes of the email being sent out, Shell internally blocked the site, preventing employees from accessing it.

Tom Sachs, Space Program: Mars, Park Avenue Armory, May 16 - June 17, 2012

Tom Sachs
Space Program: Mars

Park Avenue Armory
66th Street and Park Avenue
produced by the Armory and Creative Time
May 16 - June 17, 2012

May 16, 2012.

It must be a daunting task for any artist to consider placing a body of work into a huge, cavernous void such as the Park Avenue Armory. How to fill the 55,000 square foot Drill Hall, with its high vaulted ceilings and acres of plank floor, in addition to the ornate, memorabilia filled, wood paneled corridors and regimental meeting rooms, and not have your work overwhelmed by the vastness? How to signify amid the hangings, accoutrements and sheer volume of another age?


Your Bank of America

Wednesday, April 18, 2012, 9:24 AM

This press release, which just appeared in my Inbox and is appended fully below, would indicate that the Yes Men and/or fellow activists have once again spoofed the corporate oligarchy, this time with a bogus Bank of America website http://yourbofa.com/ that foregrounds general public dissatisfaction with current banking practices and features a letter from the CEO in which he solicits public suggestions on how banking should be run: "We want to make sure the American people are well positioned to assert control and implement changes in the direction of banking, in the eventuality that such control becomes feasible.”

Herewith the entire text of the press release, received 24 minutes ago:
