Their religion is money because on the US dollar the motto "In God we trust" is on every bill issued. The more of these dollars the more they have to play with and NO, they don't care.

Noted. Dedicated activists must grow these movements to have better effect. And, our media needs to start reporting these protests.

Sometimes I get rather down about the plight of our planet but then I see people in the photo and I know there's still hope.

I applaud, respect, commend and stand with the protesters. The $hit$ at the davo$ meeting sadly could not give a damn about what they are doing. Sociopaths, which they all are could care le$$. These people have no empathy and truly do not care about their destructive policies. We the 47% of the world must unite to overthrow them. Let your wallet do the talking and make sure to have laws enacted so they do not get anymore tax subsidies.

I wish people would stop driving so much, 2 blocks away is the supermarket why not just walk there instead of driving, this way you save the environment, you get exercise and you save on gas, this is a good way for people to protest against companies like Shell, if people buy less gas they make no Money!

I walk three miles every morning to work. I take public transit home in the evening. If I need to go out of town I take a bus or a train. I don't own a car. Shell and every other company like them is blinded by covetousness and avarice. Petroleum products of one sort or another are pervasive and ubiquitous contributing to the increase of diseases old and new and basically killing this planet and its constituents over a period of years.
