Roof protest links Louisiana to Rossport

category mayo | environment | press release author Thursday June 24, 2010 10:24author by Mayo Shell to Sea - Shell to Sea Report this post to the editors

Campaigners hung a banner reading “Energy shouldn't cost the earth” from the roof of Shell offices in Belmullet this morning at 8am. This protest connected the environmental disaster suffered by the fishermen & people of Louisiana with the threat faced by the fishermen and people of Erris. In particular the protest was in solidarity with Pat O'Donnell who has been jailed for his courageous defense of the seas and his livelihood.

Transocean, the company that built the ill-fated Deepwater Horizon oil rig for BP, is also responsible for the Corrib offshore infrastructure. Transocean is currently coming under fierce criticism for lax enforcement of safety standards in the context of very poor regulation – conditions similar to those in Ireland.

Shell to Sea spokesperson Terrence Conway said: “Pat O'Donnell has warned of the dangers posed by pollution from the Corrib Gas Project for many years. Now the consequences of ignoring such warnings is being shown on television screens around the world. By putting profit above safety, the Gulf of Mexico is being destroyed by the recklessness of the oil companies.”

He added: “John Gormley has been as weak as his counterparts in the US. He has made a mockery of the status of Sruwaddacon Bay as a Special Area of Conservation by giving Shell the go ahead to drill 80 boreholes there.”
