Mapping hell stations
Join us as we target Shell on Google Maps, turning Shell stations into ‘hell stations’ to publicly highlight the damage Shell is doing in the Niger Delta (see Amnesty’s report for further details)
We can’t do this without you, so please get involved by taking photos that obscure the S of the Shell sign from view, and sending them to us. Click on one of the logos below to get the idea.
Wherever you are in the world, we want your hell stations!

Task 1: Start snapping those Hell Stations!
- Find a Shell station in your area, by searching ‘Shell’ or ‘Shell UK Ltd’ on Google Maps. Alternatively you could use Shell’s own station finder (UK only)
- Use a prop to block the view of the ‘S’ of Shell, as others have done on the map above. Get creative! You could use a friend’s hand, or better still an object that represents your outrage at Shell’s disregard for human rights in the Niger Delta.
- Snap away!
Send them to us
- Simply send an MMS to +44 7733 134670 or firstname.lastname@example.org with the location of the station, and we’ll do the rest
Task 2: Give Shell stations bad reviews
- Find any Shell station on Google Maps, and give it a one star review, ensuring that your main message is in the first line of the review. It will then show up in searches like this:
