Work restarts in Mayo

category national | anti-capitalism | news report author Tuesday March 29, 2011 11:46author by Liam Report this post to the editors

Shell have restarted work in Mayo, starting construction on fencing around the compound, apparently a protest was violently broken up this morning. Maura Harrington is also in court today.

Shell choose their day to start construction carefully, when several campaigners were on their way to support Maura Harrington who has been summonsed for sentencing for charges that are now over a year old. This action is widely seen as blackmail by the State in an effort to end Mrs Harringtons resistance to the pipeline. The timing of Shell's action's today suggests they are being provided details of when court cases are happening, there have already been many arrests that have been timed to remove campaigners from the area at other key phases in the construction, most notably the 2008 and 2009 arrests of Pat O'Donnell while he worked at sea in order to allow the pipe lying ship the Solitaire to lie pipes across his fishing grounds.

The joint security from the Gardai and the secretive controversial private firm IRM-S is worrying. In 2009 the two individuals who featured heavily in the Film “The pipe” Patrick O Donnell and Willie Corduff were violently attacked. The attack on Mr O'Donnell saw his boat sank at sea by armed and masked men.

This morning Shell attempting to restart work on their highly controversial on-shore pipeline at Aughoose in Erris Co. Mayo. Shell are attempting to build the fences around their planned tunneling compound and with construction on-going only a few hours, Gardai have already violently attacked protestors with two people currently receiving medical attention one with suspected broken ribs. Subsequent protests were broken up, by Gardai and private security, with Jim Farrell, former army ranger and managing director of private security firm IRM- S being personally involved.
