Greenpeace’s Requiem For Arctic Ice Played in Front of Shell Offices

August 5, 2015 – Inspired by the band that played on as the Titanic sank, Greenpeace has gathered classical and other musicians to play a full orchestral suite of music in front of Shell offices and other places to fight drilling for oil in the Arctic with a tool at JTMP we are very familiar with, music. Greenpeace states on their Requiem For Arctic Ice website as the suite plays: “This is a musical protest against Shell’s dangerous drilling in the Arctic. The more we spread the campaign, the louder the music plays.”

    Gracias por difundirlo para que las prospections petrolíferas no envenenen nuestros mares.
    Necesitamos darle la máxima visibilidad para que los vertidos de petroleo no destruyan nuestras costas.
    A ver si entre todos conseguimos que este tema sea uno de los himnos en defensa de nuestros océanos.
