Formula One forces YouTube to delete protest video

Greenpeace pulled of an ingenious banner stunt at the Belgian Grand Prix and filmed it. It protested Shell's involved in destroying the Arctic. However 10 minutes after I watched their video, Formula One forced YouTube to delete it.

Off the track Shell is leading a very different kind of race — an insane rush to drill for oil in the melting Arctic.

Greenpeace stated today
They’re hoping to ride on the glory of the drivers and pretend they’re a company worthy of a spot on the podium. They’re not. An oil spill in the Arctic would be a disaster, threatening a region of breathtaking beauty and the polar bears that live there.

The race is on. It’s time to separate the sponsor from the sport and make sure the truth about Shell's dirty Arctic plan gets out there. Tell Shell to stop drilling in the Arctic.
