Stop Shell destroying Sruwaddacon Bay
mayo / environment / news report Saturday July 31, 2010 22:52 by Stop Shell Hell in Mayo   image 1 image
Gormley was quite happy to not grant a foreshore licence for the Poolbeg incinerator in his own constituency, but seems set to allow Shell to put the health and safety of the community in Erris at risk and destroy a Special Area of Conservation. If Gormley is seeking to renegotiate on Poolbeg and withhold the granting of a foreshore licence, why can't he do the same with Shell?

10 people from the Rossport solidarity camp delayed Shell’s survey work for the dangerous and experimental Corrib gas pipeline yesterday. The campaigners waded out to one of the rigs drilling boreholes in the Sruwaddacon estuarythe rig at high tide, fixed rope around the legs of the rig, and occupied the space underneath it to prevent the being moved to a new site. Work was delayed for around two hours. read full story / add a comment

Beat the Boreholes continued yesterday with a walk on the strands of the estuary in the evening and leisurely paddle out earlier in the afternoon.

Members of the local community walked close to the drilling barges at low tide and showed their opposition to Shell's willingness to destroy Sruwaddacon estuary. The estuary is not only a Special Area of Conservation and Special Protected Area – it has been an integral part of live in the community for generations. Despite this Minister Gormley has given the go-ahead for Shell to damage it. read full story / add a comment

Yesterday saw the launch of "Beat the Boreholes"; a campaign of mass civil disobedience to stop Shell works in Mayo this Summer. At 7am in the morning campaigners entered the water in Broadhaven Bay in kayaks and a safety rib in a peaceful attempt to prevent Shell from bringing in a second borehole drilling platform. They were met with 5 Garda water unit boats, with approximately 16 Gardaí on board and 10 security boats. Campaigners attempted to approach the platform but were prevented from doing so by Gardaí who overturned their kayaks. Gardaí arrested 2 campaigners for minor Public Order offences and seized three kayaks, the safety rib & several paddles. read full story / add a comment

Things are getting very busy here - after a peaceful June Gathering the camp is once more set to become a focal point for resisting Shell pipeline work. Shell are due in the estuary any day now to drill 80 boreholes - pipeline survey work that should take all summer. Yesterday we shut down the Shell office in Belmullet. Today Maura Harrington was jailed for non payment of fines. Niall and Pat are still in jail. Generally it seems that lots of people are wising up to the oil industry in the wake of the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.... read full story / add a comment

--- Jailing comes as Shell prepare to start destructive borehole drilling ---

Maura Harrington was today jailed for non-payment of fines relating to protests against Shell's disastrous Corrib Gas project. She is currently en route to Mountjoy Prison. Mrs Harrington is now the third opponent of Shell in jail, following Pat O'Donnell and Niall Harnett. This is the fifth time Mrs Harrington has been jailed in the last 18 months, and comes as Shell have sent letters to residents of the local area, warning them of the start of drilling works in Sruwaddacon Estuary beginning 'in the coming days'.

Campaigners hung a banner reading “Energy shouldn't cost the earth” from the roof of Shell offices in Belmullet this morning at 8am. This protest connected the environmental disaster suffered by the fishermen & people of Louisiana with the threat faced by the fishermen and people of Erris. In particular the protest was in solidarity with Pat O'Donnell who has been jailed for his courageous defense of the seas and his livelihood. read full story / add a comment

A large contingent of cyclists travelled from Britain via Merthyr Tydfil in Wales where another campaign is focussed to stop an ugly open-cast coal mine which is destroying the environment, polluting air and water and endangering the community. read full story / add a comment

The current 'Gulf Spill' is only one of scores of such disasters in recent decades. The same pattern of reckless failures; drip release of information; cover-up and collusion between operators and statutory agencies is evident throughout. Protesters are invariably vilified or criminalized so that attention may be directed away from the really criminal irresponsibility. Read the following quotes from highly credible sources and remember Pat's 100 days in jail today. read full story / add a comment
"Where have our natural resources gone?"
mayo / rights, freedoms and repression / press release Saturday May 08, 2010 22:00 by Shell to Sea   image 3 images
A Shell to Sea protest took place this afternoon at the 'North-West Development Forum', held in Belmullet Co Mayo. While previous protests have highlighted that the narrow terms of reference of the forum exclude real debate on the Corrib Gas Project, today’s message was one of solidarity with imprisoned campaigners Pat O’Donnell and Niall Harnett. This was the first such forum since An Bord Pleanála deemed that over half of Shell’s proposed Corrib Gas Pipeline was unacceptable on health and safety grounds in February. read full story / add a comment

On the 21st April in Ballina Circuit Court, Shell to Sea campaigner Niall Harnett was sentenced to 6 months in jail, for an assault on Garda Hugh Egan on Glengad beach. Defence barrister Leo Mulrooney summed it up, without correction from the judge, that the incident was “as close to a technical offence as possible”. Essentially Niall Harnett was found guilty of assault of a Garda for putting his hand on Garda Egan while Garda Egan was pulling out of a fellow protestor (myself), whose leg was caught on Shell’s illegally constructed fencing.
At a previous appeal sitting of the Circuit Court, Mr Harnett had been given 240 hours community service in lieu of the 6 month jail sentence, however he refused to do the community service, and so received the 6 months. read full story / add a comment
