People occupying diggers in Glengad compound.

On a sunny dawn after a successful national campaign meeting at the weekend, campaigners decided to take to the bog and stop work on the Glengad compound where Shell are currently excavating the reception pit for the tunnel boring machine.
All the protesters managed to breach the ragtag fences and two decided to rest themselves upon a Shell digger.
Work was stopped for over 3 hours on the compound.

Protest continued with a road blockade but when diggers recommenced there work, protesters ran back to the compound and tried once more to breach the fences and stop work.

After a short scuffle with Shell security IRMS protesters moved back to blockade trucks for the rest of the day.
