Shelltosea solidarity action in Göteborg.
mayo | rights, freedoms and repression | news report Tuesday February 21, 2006 21:53 by Eoin Ó Broin - Shelltosea
A manifestation to show solidarity with the Shelltosea campaign in Ireland took place at the Shell Station at Ullevi in Göteborg on Saturday 18th February as part of the International Day of Action in support of the campaign. The station is located along a dual carriageway which runs near the city centre so the main impact of the action was that lots of passers by saw the banner and placards. The banner read "Bojkatta Shell" while the placards read "SOLIDARITETSAKTION med KAMPANJEN 'Shell To Sea' på IRLAND. Friends of the Earth (Miljöförbundet Jordens Vänner, Göteborg) brought 'along their mobile display box decorated with Shelltosea posters and a Statoil advertisement with "Greenwash" printed accross it.
We set up camp just after 1pm on the intersection outside the garage where the dual carriageway meets the tram tracks. We had applied for and received permission from the Swedish Police to demonstrate a few days previously. In doing so we knew that a blockade was out of the question and that we would have to stay off Shell property. This decicion was taken following consultation with participants and those in the know. As such it seemed only logical to do everything by the book. I called to the shop in the Shell garage the night

Quality is always preferable to quantity and, as has been seen so often, small committed groups can, through their determination, provide quality information that gets round so that, at some stage hopefully, there will be quality and quantity!
The same degree of thanks is due to seven brave, cold souls as to seven hundred or thousand.
Thanks a million...beir bua agus beannacht. Maura
