UPDATE (1:02 PM EST): Statement sent by Greenpeace to its member regarding the banned video:
It looks like LEGO and its corporate pals are more offended by a video than by the idea of Shell’s plan to drill for Arctic oil. Despite the real risk of a terrible and unstoppable oil spill in icy, pristine waters, Shell is determined to plunder every last drop of oil it can.
Just like it’s not OK for a tobacco company to market to children, an oil company has no place promoting its brand on kids’ toys. So that’s why we’re asking LEGO to show the world – and our children – that an ethical company won’t work with Shell.
LEGO said last week that it’s “determined to leave a positive impact on society and the planet”. So are we! That’s why we’re working together to protect our oceans, rainforests and the Arctic.
