VIDEO: going live and shutting down Shell

Posted by jamie — 16 July 2012 at 2:00pm - Comments

It's not often you get to be part of a major piece of activism and a 12-hour live broadcast at the same time. But that's exactly what's been happening today.

While sqauds of volunteers close down Shell petrol stations in Edinburgh and London, a team of presenters, camera operators, vision mixers and editors (with one person often covering many of those roles!) have been running a special online TV channel from the Greenpeace warehouse in north London.

Here's just a taste of what's been going on. Tune in on the hour today for the latest news.

About Jamie

I'm one of the editors of the website, and I do a lot of work on the Get Active section, as well as doing web stuff for the forests campaign. I've worked for Greenpeace since 2006 and, coming from a background as a freelance writer and web producer, it's been something of an education to be part of a direct action organisation. I'm from Cumbria originally but now I live in north London - I came to study here and somehow have never left.
