Requiem for Arctic Ice: Charlotte Church

Last week, as part of the “Requiem for Arctic Ice” Greenpeace protest, Charlotte Church sang a song outside Shell’s UK HQ asking the company’s staff to leave the fragile Arctic alone, as hundreds lined the streets to watch. The performance reminds us of the power of music — and the power of the environmental movement.

Watch her performance.

Requiem for Arctic Ice: Charlotte Church, Ligeti Quartet and Kelly Lovelady

Charlotte Church joined the Requiem for Arctic Ice on its 18th day outside Shell HQ. The protest runs the whole of August as Shell drills for oil in the Arctic.
