Gardai baton - fest : Fear, loathing and injury in Rossport today !
mayo | rights, freedoms and repression | feature Saturday November 11, 2006 01:23 by TJ - Shell to Sea
Now is the time of the droogs and their uber meister, McDowell !
Friday, November 10th was the 11th anniversary of the state murder of Ken Saro Wiwa and 8 other Ogoni activists in Nigeria, at the behest of Shell. The day was chosen by the Shell to Sea campaign as a suitable day of action against Shell's unprecedented attempt to build a high-pressure pipeline across bog-land to a terminal that is sited in a completely unsuitable spot.
The protestors witnessed a quantam leap in Gardai violence against legitimate protest in Rossport. The gardai were caught on camera baton-charging the protestors and throwing one protestor over a fence into a deep ditch. Several injuries were reported and several people were hospitalised. One man was followed into a field by three gardai, pulled to the ground and savagely beaten in front of a dozen witnesses. The state and Shell have embarked on a course of thuggery and intimidation and are clearly set on smashing the protests.

What does it matter if some of the Gardai there were sweet, one of them venturing in a push and counter push heave situation : "international rules are tougher" the day was a baton fest of bastard, Gardai self-evidently enjoying their work.
