A Scottish Court has granted Shell’s request for a temporary ban on future protests by Greenpeace International and Greenpeace Netherlands near or on Shell’s oil platforms in the Brent oil field. Greenpeace protested there in October against Shell’s plans to leave parts of four old oil platforms in the North Sea. The storage tanks of three of the platforms contain more than 11,000 tonnes of oil, which will eventually end up in the sea.

Shell’s attempt at a judicial ban on all Greenpeace protests near or on the Brent oil platforms came after a safe and peaceful protest by Greenpeace International and Greenpeace Nederland on 14 and 15 October. Activists climbed the Brent Alpha and Bravo and hung banners with the words: ‘Shell, clean up your mess!’ and ‘Stop Ocean Pollution’. They also painted the words ‘toxic waste’ on one of the platforms.
