Occupy Shellanaboy set up at refinery gates in Erris

category mayo | rights and freedoms | news report author Friday November 11, 2011 09:50author by Andrew - Shell to Sea Report this post to the editors

Shell compound at Aughoose shut down during day of solidarity

About 40 Shell to Sea campaigners blocked the Aughoose compound this morning - all Shell employees prevented entering compound 7.30 to 9.30. The road was kept open to local traffic by the campaign. There was no Garda presence. Just after 10 Shell to Sea activists started setting up an Occupy Shell Corrib Camp at the gates of the refinery in a show of solidarity with the global Occupy movements!

At 9.30 campaigners started moving from the Aughhoose compound to the refinery site where there will be meet up at 10. This action was part of the day of solidarity called both to remember the execution of Ken Saro Wiwa and for people from around Ireland to stand in solidarity with the local community in Erris, Mayo.

Local residents and their supporters will gather at 10am at the gates of Shell’s inland refinery. From there they will walk to Bellanaboy Bridge to commemorate a baton charge by Gardaí on November 10th, 2006. The baton charge resulted in numerous injuries to campaigners and is one of the low points of the 11-year struggle against the inland refinery and high pressure pipeline. They will also be marking the 16th anniversary of the execution of nine activists in Ogoniland, Nigeria. Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight others were hanged by the Nigerian government on November 10th, 1995 for their opposition to Shell’s environmental destruction in the Niger delta. The walk which is now (11.20) underway is lead by people carrying the 9 crosses to commemorate the Ogoni 9 executed on this day in 1995. Over 100 people are taking part

Just wanted to say that the ability to edit and thus update a breaking news article is a great and much needed addition to indymedia.ie - just realised it exited when creating this story today. On the tech side I presume its working off a cookie and thus can only be done from the PC & computer the story was first created on?

yes. Kudos to Terence for coding this useful improvement to oscailt.

Yes, Its only the original poster who can edit the article and only for a certain period of time after posting. I think its currently 2 hours but if someone needs an emergency re-edit after that we can give them privilege to do so for a furher period on request. 

I may have to remove these 2 comments as they are both off topic and ed comment but I'll leave them here for a while longer for information purposes.
