Shell Co. Council can you hear us now?

category mayo | rights and freedoms | 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.

Local residents supported by member of the Rossport Solidarity Camp entered the council chambers in Castlebar at 11.30 this morning, after failed attempts were made to stop them entering the public gallery.
Heads turned in astonishment as the terrible noise which struck Broadhaven bay filled the council chamber. The noise had continued on 12 hours a day for four days. Both the council and shell offices had been deaf to complains during these days as they enjoyed their 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.
