Of course there will be a new great depression, writes Andrew Montford. Twenty years of vandalism of the energy system was only ever going to have one result, and will not be fixed in a hurry.

tara- Rath Lugh Route Walk

category international | history and heritage | news report author Tuesday September 25, 2007 17:52author by Tara Pixie Report this post to the editors

Efforts to halt the destruction of the Gabhra Valley continue with the Monday route walk!
bild0443.jpg

On Monday September 24th, thirty brave cultural conservationists donned face paints and headed off on a route walk from the Rath Lugh direct action camp. Film director and actor Stuart Townsend, fresh from the highly successful aerial photograph on the hill attended by an estimated 3,000 people on Sunday, arrived with four massive bags of shopping for taras soldiers before everyone set off. Stuarts continuing support is massively appreciated!
Once on route activists erected barricades along the paths of the diggers and bulldozers to slow destruction work. Activists proceeded to Baronstown where seven to eight diggers were occupied, climbed and danced upon. The walk continued as our merry band arrived at Collierstown, an ancient Fenian graveyard. The two diggers working when we arrived were quickly halted with people climbing into buckets of diggers, onto roofs and onto their tracks. Songs were sung and people danced. Work was halted for half an hour before scouts indicated that machinery was working up ahead at Trevet. We headed there and on the way occupied another digger. The driver of this digger refused to turn off his engine despite the fact that activists occupied his machine, a clear violation of health and safety laws and a sackable offense.
Our next stop was Trevet, where one bulldozer was prevented from working by activists. It was then that the Gardai made their appearance. Taking some of our group aside, names were taken and no further action occurred. As our walk was slightly behind schedule, when Garda officers approached we decided to pick up the pace, keeping twenty to forty feet between ourselves and the law. Officers continued to follow us for another 100 metres before heading back the way they came. Having stopped work for hours it was near dinner time so we headed back to base camp. Throughout the day as we passed the sacred sites in the path of the proposed motorway short talks were given about the historical and archaeological significance of each site. No one was arrested and a great day was had by all. The campaign to protect tara from the money mad mile continues picking up pace after the phenomenal success of the international Harpists for tara event and John Quigley's stunning aerial photography. Every Monday route walks will continue. Completion of the M3 through the tara Valley is years away and there is everything to play for! Be at the tara Solidarity Vigil camp on the hill by 9.30 am or at Rath Lugh by 10.00am. Please come, please support and network!

Before I point out the little error, I would like to say fair play to you all who took part in todays walk.
The importance of this action cannot be measured.

I would just like to point out that in paragraph 2, 3rd line down....

.......... ' arrived at Collierstown, an ancient Fenian graveyard '.............

It should read......' an ancient Fianna graveyard '

The Fenians did not arrive on the scene untill late 19th century.

I hope ye dont mind me making this point of correction.............

Missinformation gives the opposition an opportunity to attack, lets not give them that satisfaction.

Keep up the great work.
