Banned: video from our Shell Belgian Grand Prix protest

The video of our hijack of Sunday's Shell-sponsored Belgian Grand Prix ceremony has been pulled by YouTube following a "copyright" (aka "embarrassment") complaint. While the take down appears to have been ordered by the Formula 1 organisers, we suspect Shell is pleased. They may even be behind it. Now, why would we think that?

Shell spends millions on the safety-conscious grand prix but is bent on risky Arctic drilling

Much like the movement to save the Arctic, Grand Prix fans are made up of all sorts of people. I would know - I was a big fan of the sport growing up.

Is it possible that a lifelong environmental and social justice activist can harbor a secret love of racing? I’d like to think we embrace diversity in the movement and celebrate different points of view.
