Yesterday, a group of 15-20 Cork Harbour inhabitants, displaying a flagrant and foolhardy disregard for official warnings to stay away from the coast, braved the elements to undertake wildcat eco-restoration work at Gobby Strand, Ringaskiddy erstwhile site of Indaver’s proposed toxic waste incinerator now reclaimed as a People’s Forest. read full story / add a comment

This conference was organised by the Irish branch of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil to bring together people from government and the industry as well as some of those working to alleviate the problems. Unfortunately for a variety of reasons Cork Shell to Sea has so far been unable to gain entry but stimulated by the ideas presented on the ASPO website and our own experinces we put this leaflet together that we think raises points that anyone working in this area would do well to consider. This is the text, we plan to distribute this leaflet outside the conference later today and to write a further article in the next day or two. read full story / add a comment

A ship that served on the US / British naval taskforce in the Persian Gulf during the invasion of Iraq visited "neutral" Cork Harbour at the weekend. Once again Irish neutrality was breached shamelessly. Rumour has it that more visits to Cork Harbour are likely in advance of next year's 70th anniversary of the 1938 handing over of the "Treaty Ports". Looks like we've effectively handed them back. read full story / add a comment

While others canvass to gain entry to the Rich Man's Palace, there were others that remembered that every May the 1st is the day to remember workers' and working-class communities' struggles across the world and throughout history. The electoral Left can go play with Bertie, Inda, Pat, and Trevor 'the sustainable capitalist'. The rest of us will make do with a small, yet determined and vibrant parade this Tuesday evening, starting shortly after seven at Connolly Hall (the most pointless building in the city, methinks) and finishing with speeches at Daunt Square. This was followed by by music from Intinn and DJs, which was still going when I left at 11. read full story / add a comment

At 11:30 this morning, ten members of Cork Shell to Sea staged an occupation of Marathon Oil's Irish HQ in Mahon, Cork. Many of the people on the action were dressed as runners, both as a play on the company name and as an allusion to the marathon determination of the Erris communities and the campaign itself. Entry was swift, easy, and unforced. We were inside there for over half an hour before the Gardai arrived. A spirited and good-natured dialogue occurred between Cork S2S members and senior management at Marathon Oil. We left dragging our heels a little, making our departure protracted. read full story / add a comment
