It's been dubbed the immigration election, but it seems the Tories and Labour haven't heard. Neither party seems serious about tackling this major source of public anger, says Migration Watch's Alp Mehmet.

Beat the Boreholes continues

category mayo | environment | news report author Monday August 09, 2010 14:38author by RSC - Rossport Solidarity Camp Report this post to the editors

Camp upsets Shell operation

Yesterday at about 2.30pm Shell began to lower "Jack - 1" - one of two survey barges currently in Sruth Fhada Chonn estuary SAC (Special Area of Protection) - in order to tug it to another part of the estuary.

The Rossport Solidarity Camp was ready and willing to claim free passage of the public estuary and in the process upset the operation. Over a dozen Shell security boats and two Garda RIBS couldn't keep the 6 kaykers out, with two of them reaching the moving barge after an hour and a half of chase.

Shell's jack-up barges are damaging Sruth Fhada Chonn estuary SAC (Special Area of Conservation) by drilling survey boreholes for the proposed Onshore Corrib Gas Pipeline tunnel - the latest route offered by Shell as a means to hook up the refinery to the well. At each new location the barges massive legs are lowered into the estuary crushing life beneath the sand. Estuary water is being used to lubricate the work, and and outfall pipe is discharging it back in to the supposedly protected waters.

The Gardaí seemed happy to let IRMS do as they pleased on the water, with kayakers being unlawfully rammed, grabbed, towed against their will - all on a public waterway. At one stage an IRMS boat stole one kayak from under its owner, capsizing him into the water. The Gardaí issued many Section 8 warning under the public order act (to the kaykers) but no arrests were made, despite one kayaker making it onto the moving rig.

Beat the boreholes continues, now both rigs are in the upper estuary - on the sand at low tide and accessible by walking.

Thank you Kaykers. We are humbled by your bravery on a public waterway. policed aggresively and now polluted. IRMS seem to be above the law. Shocking that they are allowed to do what they like, but sadly it is nothing new, neither is the Garda's behaviour also providing free S.A.S style security for Shell but paid for by the Taxpayer in the midst of a severe recession. It is an outrage, especially as Ireland' s gas is been given away

Coal, gas, oil, and atomic nergy is destroying the planets livability and therefore the last forty-five years of ecological green revolution has brought into being the hi and low-tech tools to put in place wind, tidal, and solar power which transforms to electricity and is more power than can be used by society. No more blackouts. This non-pollution solution is given freely in natures kinder laws and provides work for all and forever more. Viva socialist liberation. End pollution wars, not endless wars for more pollution,
