Shell’s Efforts to Secure a Net at Glengad are Not Allowed.
mayo | environment | feature Friday April 03, 2009 22:25 by Niall Harnett - Shell to Sea / Rossport Solidarity Camp rossportsolidaritycamp at gmail dot com
Whose Law Is It Anyway?
For the third time this week nets at Glengad have been put up by Shell and taken down by local residents. The purpose of the net is to stop sand-martins from nesting in the cliff-face.

Shell want to construct a ‘landfall’ installation at the Glengad Cliffs to secure an offshore pipeline that they have failed to construct for the past 4 years and more because of local resistance.

Shell have just returned to put the net back up again!!
They made some progress but backed off when people arrived down at the beach again in the last few minutes.
Shell Security cannot or will not account for why they have a net across the Glengad cliff, as youtube the clip below demonstrates.

God bless the Erris people for their courage to defend their homeland! You are in our thoughts and prayers always, and a grand example of peaceful resistance.
yes i agree the Erris people are a wonderful example of peaceful resistance protecting their homeland but the sad thing is the grand example of corruption, look the other way and treason that they are up against.
Well done to all involved, fair play! Shell and Belcross seem to be on shaky ground legally, and not for the first time. Keep up the good work. Is Belcross a Mayo company?
Shell workers came back to put up the net and were obstructed by Shell to Sea folks who chose to keep their bums dry on the recently taken down net, which remains in the same spot. And then the net was taken down again. Gardai came and left leaving security to spout meaningless instructions to stay away, which were ignored.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service people are all in meetings or busy, and there's no response from the ministers.
Well done to all involved in this; it's just another example of the litany of abuse by Shell in the pursuit of profit. Shame also on the Green Party for allowing this to continue, number one, and not answering your emails/phonecalls/letters - God help them when they come canvassing this summer.
The fact that the 3 shell goons in the video couldn't put a coherent sentence together is response to a reasonable question says it all.
PS: The PWS should be ashamed for a blatant dereliction of duty. They are an embarrasment to all civil and public servants.
Well done to Niall & Co. at Glengad is it possible to slap a Court Injunction on Shell on the no permission?,
Cost of this if it is possible, well the old adage "they cant take blood from a stone"
Just a thought.
The core problem as to the lack of active active conservation here is that the Wilflife Act Amended2000 is rendered dysfunctional thus the PWS 'have no teeth' and this is demonstrated in the way there seems to no enforcement of the legislation in the protection of hedgerows and trees. As late as April this year hedgerows and trees all over the country (because of diggers bought for knockdown prices)are being felled - and as a source of fuel - a counter offensive by people who are not allowed to cut turf . Surley the law as such is an ass, and the only chance of getting this legislation UPDATED is through Michael D Higins of Labour who narrowly missed out on ramming it HOME when in power lasttime round. Perhpas if Gormley and Ryan banged heads they might get the proponents of active conservation management within the PWS to be secunded into the Dept of Agriculture -Teagasc who seem to operate on active conservation management within REPS ,with A LOT more 'teeth' than the PWS. How can you expect the PWS to have any influence here on the conservation MANAGEMENT of sandmartins when they cant fulfill their contract in the protection of hedgerows and bogs etc.
Put in Michael D Higgins to get them out. Again the fault lies not only with PWS but with Bord Pleanala who overruled the Inspectors report and gave planning permission which is in breach of European Law AND IN CONTRAVENTION of the EU EIA and Habitats Legislation.
As well might you leave the fairies to plough your land or the idle winds to sow it, as sit down and wait for Shell to magically clear up their act and work in a positive manner. Shell only have one lust, money.

This tender notice has recently gone live on etenders - which is supposedly the procurement website for government tenders. It would appear that Shell has now officially taken its place at the cabinet table.
Stay the course....Well done to everyone in Glengad and beyond - mind those nets, this notice shows what Shell is planning next....
"eTenders has been developed by the Department of Finance and is designed to help you find and publish tender notices on government and public sector procurement across Ireland."
It's official; Shell is now "...government and public sector...". People of Ireland, welcome to corporatism.
