A study claims the vaccines saved 500,000 lives in the UK up to 8 December 2021. But this isn't plausible. The number of excess deaths in the first year of the pandemic (before vaccines) was only 76,000.

Customers are leaving the Halifax en masse after an employee told customers who don't like the bank's gender pronoun policy to close their accounts. It's yet another case of 'Get Woke, Go Broke'.

Pro-life campaigner Lois McLatchie wasn't expecting SNP MP Alison Thewliss to react the way she did after she appeared on BBC Scotland: she labelled her an 'extremist' and called for her to be banned from the airwaves.

Deprivation of rights for months on end, constantly-shifting petty rules backed up with threats, victimisation of particular groups ? there's a word for how Governments have treated us the past two years: bullying.

Lorries blocked along Shell's haulage route

category mayo | environment | news report author Sunday April 22, 2012 13:16author by j debender - rossport solidarity campauthor address A field in Aughoose, between Pullathomas and Bellanaboyauthor phone 085.114.1170 Report this post to the editors

Six people block Shell's haulage, no arrests

On Friday haulage was stopped as six campaigners stood in the road outside Shell's Aughoose compound. This meant work at both the Glengad and Aughoose compounds was stopped as one tractor and three lorries waited in the road.

On Friday six people went for a stroll along Shell's haulage route, and stopped a tractor from going into the tunneling compound in Aughoose. Soon after three lorries came along the road and were forced to stop for the roadblock. Local traffic was still able to pass on the other side of the road, but not Shell's traffic. Eventually the gardaí arrived to facilitate Shell and move people out of the road.

When the transferee guards from Galway were questioned as to why they are enforcing traffic laws for some people but not for Shell, they unsurprisingly had no answers.

If you would like to join the protests, come up and visit the area. Every Tuesday morning local residents and supporters meet outside the main gate of Shell's Bellanaboy refinery at 8am, and spontaneous protests happen throughout the week.

The next Day of Solidarity is Friday 4th May. The rest of the bank holiday weekend will be a work weekend at the Rossport Solidarity Camp, come up and lend us a hand! See the poster and more details here: http://shelltosea.com/content/may-day-day-solidarity-wo...7-may

These photos are from later in the day on Friday 20th April. This is a common occurrence along this road, which is not even supposed to be a haulage route.

Great job folks. More power to you.
Pity we can't hit the bastards on a National level, blocade routes, plants and filling stations. Hit them where it hurts - the bank account!
Gone are the good old days when the working class would stand up and take ths kind of action, led by the unions.
Even they've sold out now.
Glad to see yous haven't!
