NO FUEL FOR APARTHEID
An international campaign to force Shell to withdraw from South Africa was launched in 1987 by anti-apartheid organisations in the Netherlands, USA and UK. The Anti-Apartheid Movement called for a boycott of all Shell products and local anti-apartheid groups picketed Shell gas stations all over Britain. Shell lost major contracts with local authorities and its annual general meeting on 11 May 1988 was disrupted by anti-apartheid activists. As a result of the campaign, Shell’s share of the UK petrol market fell by 6.6 per cent.
