Cork Shell to Sea occupy Marathon Oil's Irish HQ

How a bunch of runners embarrassed a Marathon!
At 11:30 this morning, ten members of Cork Shell to Sea staged an occupation of Marathon Oil's Irish HQ in Mahon, Cork. Many of the people on the action were dressed as runners, both as a play on the company name and as an allusion to the marathon determination of the Erris communities and the campaign itself. Entry was swift, easy, and unforced. We were inside there for over half an hour before the Gardai arrived. A spirited and good-natured dialogue occurred between Cork S2S members and senior management at Marathon Oil. We left dragging our heels a little, making our departure protracted.
At 11:30 this morning, ten members of Cork Shell to Sea staged an occupation of Marathon Oil's Irish HQ in Mahon, Cork. Until now, the role of Marathon Oil in the Corrib Gas scandal has received little or no attention from either the campaign or the media. Marathon are happy to let Shell be the bloody spear-point of the Big Oil takeover of Ireland's natural resources, while Marathon themselves can pretend it has nothing to do with them. Given what has happened up in Erris over the last seven years and yes, Marathon Oil has been involved from the very beginning, Marathon's self-serving guff about 'corporate responsibility' on their website reads like a sick joke.
