Shell Co. Council can you hear us now?

category mayo | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Monday June 25, 2012 19:34author by Rossport Solidarity Camp Report this post to the editors

Today the AGM of Mayo Co. council was disrupted by a high pitched grinding noise; a recording of the sounds that came from Shell's compound in Aghoose during the June bank holiday weekend. Local residents aimed to demonstrate how they were ignored when they tried to complain about this disturbance which lasted for four days, and were told the council offices were closed on the bank holiday.

Soon after, the council; unable to their meeting, left. Re emerging later with gardai and threatening to kick protesters out of the chamber. A few councilors instructed gardai to arrest some of the group but had to be reminded by one garda that this was a meeting open to the public. The group left soon afterwards by their own accord

Great to see that action in Mayo. Typical, as long as they don't live in Bellinaboy they don't care. Keep up the pressure.
