Road builders raided, Digger diving done.

Diggers Ahoy!

Road builders offices raided by cultural conservationists.


THE TARA cultural conservationists halted work on a controversial section of the proposed new M3 on Thursday.
Twenty-one campaigners stormed the administrative complex (Dunshaughlin)of the site contractors (SIAC, Ferrovial and Eurolink.)near Tara Hill, occupying offices and filming surprised staff.
Then they went to a nearby construction site and climbed on to bulldozers, stopping roadmaking for an hour-and-a-half.
It was a significant escalation of the long protest, timed to coincide the old Celtic New Year's Day.

One of the reasons for the action was the EU's recent court ruling on contractors to stop, in view of the continuing damage to Ireland's World Heritage Site.
A spokesman for the conservationists said: "This direct action has been taken by concerned citizens of the EU because the Irish government is ignoring European law."
"Continued attempts have been made to persuade the government to stop the work on this section of the M3 while a decision is reached by the European commission.
"It was a very successful action and many messages of concern were conveyed to the senior management at the administrative site.
Connor McDermot, technical manager, when asked why the graves of our ancestors had been desecrated gave us no comment.
"Information was gathered on illegal road building activities.
"It has come to light that further destruction of this historic valley will be caused by 129 kilometres of slip roads as well as 79 km of motorway and the further development that will inevitably happen if this destruction is allowed.
Campaigners call on all Irish networks to activate and support the Save Tara Valley campaign,help urgently needed.
More reports on frontline action soon.
Video link soon Tech support needed.
