The essential guide to IT transformation

Protesters who broke into Shell's London headquarters and barricaded themselves inside executives' offices continued to load images and text onto their Web site even after police cut power and phone lines to the eco-warriors. Using a digital camera, laptop computer and portable phone, the thirteen protesters kept a unique record of their six-hour siege before police finally smashed through the office walls and arrested them all. They were taken to Charring Cross Police Station where they were released later in the evening without charge. The environmentalists described the protest as an "act of solidarity with indigenous resistance to Shell in Nigeria". Today, a spokesman for the activists said he believed Shell was ready to take out an injunction against the protesters' Web site, which uses the company's logo and images, and closely resembles Shell's own home page. But a spokesman for Shell said he didn't know of any plans to force the pressure group to remove the offending material from its Web site. ®
