Advertising fossil fuel companies is toxic and wrong. And adverts for Shell, made by agency Wunderman Thompson, have just been officially banned for greenwashing.

We're going to Shell's agency Wunderman Thompson's offices to make sure they know who they're working for, and demand that they drop Shell and stop cleaning up the public image of the world's worst polluters. This is a low risk, peaceful demonstration - with cake.

Where & when: Greater London House, 180 Hampstead Road, NW1 7AW on Thursday 8th June, 8.30-10am.

Advertisers are complicit in Shell's crimes: by creating greenwash ads featuring wind turbines and happy families plugging in electric cars, they conceal and condone Shell's mass-scale fossil fuel extraction, ecocide and devastation to communities.

Adverts trick us into thinking Shell is 'green' and 'doing its bit'. We deserve to see what's really happening, not just fake adverts, so that together we can SHUT DOWN SHELL.

The UK advertising industry was responsible for 208 million tonnes of CO2 in 2022 through the sales of products and companies it promotes - adding 32% to the emissions of every single person in the UK. Advertising has a lot to answer for.

We need you to help us make a noise! Bring friends, placards, props. See you there.

Nearest tube station: Mornington Crescent / Camden Town. Email us hello[at] for more info or press enquiries.
