Shell's First Day of Peat Works 'Severely Impeded' by Protests
mayo | environment | news report Tuesday July 26, 2011 11:35 by j debender - Rossport Solidarity Camp Aughoose, between Pollatomish and Bellanaboy 0851141170
Come up to Mayo! Protests are continuous...
Monday 25th July Shell intended to begin constructing a permanent compound in Aughoose from which to begin laying the offshore pipeline. However in a statement to Midwest radio Shell commented that works had been 'severely impeded' on Monday. Between a 5½ hour tripod blockade in the morning and loads of protesters on bicycles and on foot, the roads remained shut down for quite a lot of the day.
The tripod was erected at 7am and the road was blocked until about 12.30pm. AGS scaffolding, a company owned by the brother of Sergeant James Gill, was called in to erect scaffolding around the tripod and the person who had climbed the tripod was arrested and charged. That was the only arrest on Monday. When the person in the tripod asked Sergeant Butler how she was going to be brought down the ladder, he responded that she would 'be handcuffed, your ankles will be cable-tied and you'll be manhandled down the ladder.'
