If you cast your mind back a few months to September - before the Arctic Sunrise was seized and all 30 people on board were arrested and held in Russia - you might remember Aurora, the giant polar bear that walked through central London.
If you were there and walked with Aurora on the day, you’ll have seen the spectacular sight and the sound of that guttural roar she unleashed outside Shell’s HQ. To remind you of that feeling, or if you couldn’t make it down on the day, I’ve now got something special to share with you.
Filmmaker Prano Bailey-Bond made a short film that captures the beauty and spectacle that was Aurora.
Watch the journey of how she came to be, from conception and construction all the way through to that moment when she carried the names of the millions who want to save the Arctic to Shell’s doorstep.
Aurora was just the icing on the cake of an incredible year that saw millions of people taking action to save the Arctic and I’d just like to thank you for being a part of this amazing time.
Now put the kettle on, grab a mince pie, and sit back to enjoy this beautiful film.
