Skull(photo by George Osodi)Here's a report from a London Rising Tider with a single Shell share, who went into its Annual General Meeting, while others quietly infiltrated the hotel or stayed outside to leaflet and chat to shareholders and passers-by. The main meeting took place in The Hague, with a video feed to London, or the Novotel Hammersmith, to be precise. Keep an eye on Indymedia for reports of how others got on outside...
