Biden's team was still obliviously tweeting his resolve to fight on hours after he had decided to step down. So was the matter taken out of his hands? It has all the signs of an opportunistic palace coup, says Eugyppius.

You might want to re-do the poster to clarify what you're actually looking for!

Is it 'make Shell process the gas at sea'?
Is it 'stop Govt oil and gas giveaway'?
or is it 'no to Shell'?

BTW is it not already too late given that the appropriate planning procedures have been followed by Shell? Or is it that the opinion of the (tiny) membership of S2S is worth more than everyone else?

whats up crustykiller, surely as a shell lackey you much be educated enough to get that there is a tremedous overlap of issues at play here. or are we, the people only alllowed one piont of protest per campiagn. me thinks most readers on this site will be able to digest and comprehend the multi-faceted nature of Shell and the States plans in mayo
Is it 'make Shell process the gas at sea'?..........................................................yep
Is it 'stop Govt oil and gas giveaway'?...................................yep as well
or is it 'no to Shell'? T.............................this Multinational corporation funded the nigerian government who organised the round up and judicial murders of 8 nigerian social justice and environmental activists, including Ken Saro-Wiwa. these where local activists (the tiny minority you might say!!!!.)the people with the moral courage to stand up against corporate and state might against envirnmental and community destruction. Oh yeah just for some facts get this..........Shell's gross income for 1990 was 132 billion - more than Tanzania, Ethiopia, Napal, Bangladesh, Zaire, Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya and Pakistan combined! 500 million people, 10% of the worlds population, live in these countries!!!!!
so just maybe there is room for a bit of a critique of the capitalists pigs with their heads in OUR troughs...........

Saro-Wiwa became a leader and spokesman for the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and was a world-famous poet, teacher and writer. In one statement he said that, “The results of such unchecked environmental pollution and degradation include the complete destruction of the ecosystem... All one sees and feels around is death. Environmental degradation has been a lethal weapon in the war against the indigenous Ogoni people.” MOSOP tried to stop the ecological destruction that Shell was wreaking and to secure a greater (or any) share of the oil wealth that was being drilled from under their land. In 1993, 300,000 Ogoni united to protest against their lands being destroyed by Shell’s relentless thirst for oil. By mass direct action MOSOP shut down Shell’s extraction facilities. They have never been reopened. Next year there was a violent backlash from the Nigerian military. 2,000 Ogoni were killed, some 30,000 made homeless, countless others tortured and raped. Shell claim that they are unconnected to this repression, but have confessed to paying the military twice for going to specific villages where they terrorised and killed Ogonis." http://www.schnews.org.uk/archive/news520.htm

We have no reason to trust shell or the state, particlualrrly since the state beat the shit out of local residents almost one year ago, so yeah there is

"BTW is it not already too late given that the appropriate planning procedures have been followed by Shell? "
it doesnt matter one hair what planning procedures are followed if those porpcedures arent
independant of (irish) government shenanigans and corporate payouts.....how much has the petro chemical industry funded Fianna Fail as a party, never mind the individual handouts

here is an excerpt of Ken Sari-Wiwa speech at trial just before his execution.....it might be pertenent and more resonant to readers when we see that the only thing that is different is place and that political executions cost votes in this country

""I repeat that we all stand before history. I and my colleagues are not the only ones on trial. Shell is on trial here, and it is as well that it is represented by counsel said to be holding a watching brief. The company has, indeed, ducked this particular trial, but its day will surely come and the lessons learned here may prove useful to it, for there is no doubt in my mind that the ecological war the company has waged in the delta will be called to question sooner than later and the crimes of that war be duly punished. The crime of the company's dirty wars against the Ogoni people will also be punished.

On trial also is the Nigerian nation, its present rulers and all those who assist them. I am not one of those who shy away from protesting injustice and oppression, arguing that they are expected of a military regime. The military do not act alone. They are supported by a gaggle of politicians, lawyers, judges, academics and businessmen, all of them hiding under the claim that they are only doing their duty, men and women too afraid to wash their pants of their urine.

We all stand on trial, my lord, for by our actions we have denigrated our country and jeopardised the future of our children. As we subscribe to the subnormal and accept double standards, as we lie and cheat openly, as we protect injustice and oppression, we empty our classrooms, degrade our hospitals, and make ourselves the slaves of those who subscribe to higher standards, who pursue the truth, and honour justice, freedom and hard work"

one wonders if we recognise our own gombeen nation state in these words.

bring on the ninth of november!!!!

Just who is everyone else....call a referendum on the proposal, its giveaway to corporations, the violence of state forces against the local population, the move from representative democracy to a market based democracy etc etc etc etc.....come on you can do better than that crustykiller

After a blockade of Gate No. 2 at 6.00am, there are now two groups of protestors being coralled by a force of what must be over 300 police. One group is on the road between Ballinaboy Bridge and Gate No. 2, the other on the bridge itself.
