Shell Oil just sued the Center for Biological Diversity and 12 other groups.
It seems the oil giant thinks it can intimidate us with threats so that it can push through dangerous new drilling in the fragile Arctic ecosystem.
Shell has big plans for offshore oil drilling in America's Arctic next summer but it has no realistic plan to deal with a spill.
Please stand with the Center and help us defeat this obnoxious, anti-free-speech lawsuit.
Shell Oil is suing us because we've fought every offshore drilling proposal in the Arctic since 2007. Shell knows we're effective, so it's trying to take us out with its preemptive attack.
This isn't the first time Shell has gone after environmentalists. While Shell is aggressively suing us, it's telling the Supreme Court right now that environmentalists should be prohibited from suing it. Don't let Shell's hypocrisy stand!
Sign the petition now to stand up to Shell's strong-arm tactics.
We the Undersigned stand with the Center for Biological Diversity and the other environmental groups being sued by Shell Oil in saying we won't be threatened and intimidated.We will continue our work to fight to protect the fragile Arctic ecosystem from oil drilling.

Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
