Shell start work at Arghoose compound in Erris - day of action called

category mayo | environment | news report author Friday July 22, 2011 14:26author by Andrew - Dublin S2S Report this post to the editors

Rossport Solidarity Camp is reporting that this morning Shell started work at the compound in Aughoose where they intend to start digging the tunnel to house a section of the experimental high pressure raw gas pipeline that has been opposed for a decade by the local community.

The private security company IRMS had 70+ personnel there who closed off the main Aughoose to Glengad road illegally this morning and refused to allow anyone to pass through. Two Shell to Sea campaigners were injured after being dragged out of compound. Gardai were nowhere to be seen this morning, presumably to allow IRMS a free hand.

Rossport Solidarity Camp have just put out a call for a day of action July 29th (next Friday). Dublin Shell to Sea are organising a bus leaving 6pm Thursday evening to return Friday evening. For more details contact them at at dublins2s@gmail.com phone: 086 736 2417

More details to follow as we get them

Dublin Shell to Sea's bus tickets for the Day of Action on Friday 29th July are now on sale in Connolly Books shop (next to the Projects Arts Centre) on East Essex Street between Temple Bar and Parliament Street. It is essential that you go buy your tickets early as we expect the bus to sell out quickly.

The bus will be leaving from outside the Writers Museum / Hugh Lane Gallery at 18:00 on Thursday 28th July eve and will return to Dublin on Friday eve.

Tickets cost €25 employed / €10 unemployed but as always cost should not deter anyone from travelling. If you can't afford the ticket price just let us know and we will sort it out for you.
