Mother of three from Sligo arrested over E.S.B. dispute

category sligo | environment | news report author Tuesday February 08, 2011 13:50author by Sharon Mullen Report this post to the editors

Pat & Sharon Mullen of Ballymote, Co. Sligo are in a dispute with the Electricity Supply Board, the E.S.B. want to put three 123 foot high electricity pylons on their land carrying 220,000 volt cables. Pat & Sharon are refusing E.S.B. staff entry to their land to install five overhead lines. On the grounds that they have the potential to have adverse effects on their health, their children and communities health and that of their livestock. Furthermore, they are concerned about the almost certain devaluation of four sites on their picturesque land by the erection of these massive 123 foothigh pylons and the subsequent impact on their children’s inheritance. They want the E.S.B. to place the power lines under ground. A simple request!

This dispute is in its 11th year for Sharon and Pat, and their three
children. Sharon was arrested Tuesday February 1st 2011 after she
asked the E.S.B. staff to vacate her land. Sharon says 'We are 100%
committed to this cause and fully prepared to be jailed'. Please help
support Sharon and Pat in their struggle to protect their families
health and well-being and preserve the natural environment of their
own farmland.

Sharon Mullen, family and friends are currently keeping a 24 hour
vigil on the land and have no intentions of surrendering to this
injustice. No amount of bullying, harassment or intimidation will lead
Sharon, Pat or their neighbours to put their children's health at
risk. We are well aware that this type of harassment is common
practice and would like to hear of your experiences for possible
future publications on the matter. Please contact us on the details
below.

In other E.U. countries the courts have ruled that the overhead power
lines infringe individual's human rights. This has led to dismantling
of pylons in Spain. Sharon and Pat have offered to dig the hole for
the lines to be buried they are not trying to prevent the supply going
through their land.

We don't inherit the Earth. We preserve it for our grandchildren.
DON'T LET THE ESB DESTROY IT!

BURY THE POWER LINES . . . NOT THE PEOPLE
Over 100 peer-reviewed papers excepted by the science community have
indicated EMF have an adverse effect on health. Please help support
Sharon & Pat Mullen in their struggle to protect their families health
and well-being and preserve the natural environment of their own
farmland. This dispute will not end until the power line is buried
under ground.

Lobby your politicians and request a commitment from them, that they
