Emergecy demo at Mountjoy Prison

category dublin | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Friday February 15, 2013 17:56author by Shell to Sea supporter Report this post to the editors

Ms Ní Ghraidm pleaded guilty to a Section 8 and 9 charge and refused to do community service as she felt her protest was a service to a community under siege from Shell. The Judge then sentenced Ms Ní Ghraidm to 3 months in jail.

Izzy will be brought to Mountjoy prison this evening between 7-8pm. There will be a demo supporting Izzy from 7pm, at the entrance to the prison. Please come to show your support.

'From indymedia Ireland story'

Izzy has been a strong supporter of Shell to Sea for years and her commitment to the cause is much appreciated by us here in Mayo.
She has courageously stood up for our struggle to protect our community and is passionate in her fight to reclaim Irish natural resources.

Speaking from the Court, Shell to Sea spokesperson Terence Conway stated "Yesterday in Belmullet District court, we saw a committed environmental campaigner being jailed for a minor public order incident. On the other hand a Shell security guard who was caught dealing drugs is allowed to walk free. Ms Ní Ghraidm has taken a brave stand to support this community's struggle against a greedy multinational that will do whatever it is allowed to by the subservient State institutions".

Mr Conway continued "What we're experiencing is the selective application of the law. Yesterday Providence Resources dropped their Dublin Bay oil drilling licence because the State has not got it's required EU environmental laws in place. The same EU environmental laws apply to Corrib but are being ignored."

I was there for 15 minutes and no one showed up. Maybe the organisers could explain who they are (Shell to Sea Dublin?) and why they did not show?

This seems odd as Izzy was brought to Mountjoy from Belmullet on Wednesday and the call-out for a demo went out for when she was expected to arrive at Mountjoy. No idea why something was put down for Friday or where that has come from...perhaps a mistake somewhere along the line.
