ForestEthics: CEO of Royal Dutch Shell Confronted by Protestors During World Energy Congress

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2010) - Before his keynote address today at the World Energy Congress in Montreal, CEO of global energy giant Royal Dutch Shell, Peter Voser was confronted by environmentalists to "get the Shell out" of Sacred Headwaters.

A brochure, mocked up as a Shell publication, was handed out to Voser and 1000 Congress attendees, ridiculing Shell's activities to drill coalbed methane in the Sacred Headwaters.

"Shell cannot call themselves socially responsible when they have dismissed and undermined clear opposition from residents and communities in the Skeena, Nass, and Stikine watersheds," said Shannon McPhail, Executive Director of Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition.
