amnesty toasts shell

amnesty international has just had the anti-shell ads designed & paid for in the financial times pulled [by the financial times]. the ads were the culmination of a hugely successful media campaign by the organisation to highlight the harsh realities of the petro-chemical giant's exploitive international operation & practices strategized to coincide with the shareholders AGM.

according to amnesty international, their organisation was informed only the night before the full page advertisement was due to run that it would not be going to print.

a spokesperson for the financial times cited legal assurances rather than content issues were responsible for the last minute decision. amnesty international disputes this claim.
