Singing climate protesters disrupt Shell shareholder meeting

From CNN | World News by Reuters and Jack Guy, CNN

Shell’s annual shareholder meeting was temporarily suspended on Tuesday after dozens of climate protesters caused disruption, chanting slogans and holding banners.

“Can I assume that you do not want me to speak?” Shell chair Andrew Mackenzie asked over chants such as “we will stop you” – sung to the tune of Queen’s “We Will Rock You” – and “Shell must fall”, which delayed the start of proceedings.

Police arrived at the venue in central London but allowed protesters to continue chanting for over an hour after the meeting was supposed to start.
