How painful for Shell will this get?
Shell to Sea Campaign moves to Dublin and the Hague
18th May and 27th April and a presence at the Shell AGM in the Hague. The second blockade in Dublin saw a more measured Garda response - doubtless nervous of the publicity that could be generated during the election season. On this day only four Shell employees were pushed through as all three entrances were blockaded.
50 shares in Shell were donated to the Shell to Sea campaign giving the campaigners the right to attend the AGM in the Hague. John Monaghan delivered a statement to Shell:
Alternative development options have never been fully explored, and this fact has been well documented. Meaningful community consultation has never existed. Community concern has never been addressed. The proposed expanding in-land refinery complex will never be acceptable.
On the 15th of May last Shell held its centenary annual general meeting in the Hague, the Netherlands. Among the bejewelled, coiffed and well-heeled shareholders were a farmer, a blacksmith and a carpenter from Erris and two solidarity campers united in their opposition to Shell’s plans for north Mayo and the Corrib gas. They came with one share apiece and the intention of making their voices heard. A full account of events has been posted at http://www.indymedia.ie/article/82610.
