It is Still Extracting

A great loudreading is happening in the Asian Building. Its full name is Asiatic Petroleum Building, and it used to be the Shanghai office of Shell oil company. It went through war, revolution, and opening-up in China. Now some parts of Asian Building are exhibition spaces and others belong to China Pacific Insurance, a company providing automobile insurance. Somehow, Asian Building always connects to oil. Shell left Asian Building, but that doesn’t mean it stops extraction. The simple truth is that it has been happening everywhere around the world and created numerous environmental problems. So we propose doing a loudreading here, to notify the public that extraction continues to happen and cause more problems.
