Shell 2 Sea protest outside Independent News Papers
dublin | arts and media | event notice Tuesday November 28, 2006 15:18 by Labour Youth
A protest has been called by Labour Youth for 1 pm outside Independent News Papers in protest at their biased and skewed coverage of the Shell to Sea Campaign. Independent NewsPapers head office are located on Middle Abbey Street just off O Connell Street.
Don’t believe everything you read in the papers – Indo lies for Shell!

Dear labour youth,
I think the problem with these type of opinion polls is the spin that can so easily be put on the answers, depending on who is asking the questions. I take your point re locating the terminal at sea but you cannot offer people an offshore facility as an option, if the reality is that it is not a viable option. That is like offering a child the choice between a bike and a time machine. What we would like and what we are likely to get are usually very different.
I think the reality is that quite a few people outside the immediate Rossport area would be quite happy to have the terminal in Bellanaboy, on the basis that all the safety conditions are being adhered to. I know you will probably disagree with me, but I think there is a sizeable majority who are in favour of the project as it stands, and dont go out of their way to make themselves heard. On a day to day basis, I hear more people in favour of the project than against, and that to me is more telling than any opinion poll.
Independent Newspapers moved out of Abbey Street over a year ago. Their offices are now on Talbot St. - down towards Connolly Station
Geez, some organisational skills in labour thats for shure!!
they cant even get the address correct!!!
Yep the protest will take place outside their offices at 27 - 32 Talbot Street
Thanks for that :)
Well katiem, I'd have to agree that polls can be spun in any way, but the manipulation of the poll result by the Independent was, in effect, a lie. You could argue that technically they weren't lying but only in the way Bill Clinton wasn't lying when he made his statement about 'that woman'. I'm sure the poll respondents won't be too happy about their answers, given freely and honestly, being used in this way.
The Indo had the power to ask the questions in the way they saw fit, and still didn't get the results they wanted, so they lied.
"Not viable" for whom? Shell? It isn't "not viable", they just don't want it. Different things.
In the same strain, the current site is "not viable" for many Rossport residents, but of course nobody would never dream of not giving that option.
Options in polls like these shouldn't be limited to just what Shell dictate are possible outcomes. Then what would be the point of the opinion poll at all? Sure you might as well just have one answer then, "an outcome that Shell agree to." Covers everything really, doesn't it?
Great activism from Labour Youth. keep up the good work, you guys need to keep putting preasure on the Labour Party and make sure some of the TD's get down to the protest.
You never know it might win you guys a few votes :)
