Anti-Water Charges' Five Now in Jail 9 Days

Free the Protestors - Jail the Bankers


The Government acting on behalf of corporate and financial power who have set their eyes on our Water have disgracefully jailed 5 citizens of this country because they said No to Austerity. We demand their freedom immediately. The five are: Derek Byrne, Bernie Hughes, Michael Batty who are imprisoned for 27 days and Paul Moore and Damien O’Neill who are imprisoned for 56 days.

There is clearly one law for the rich and one law for the rest of us. Where are the bankers and developers who bankrupted this country and led to widespread hardship and a huge increase in suicides in this country, deaths which have devastated families. And what of the people who have died for lack of resources in our health system and of those evicted from their homes. It is time we stood up to this undemocractic sham and demand our country back from the claws of the elite.


Keep an eye out on social media and any websites related to the campaign against water charges for info on upcoming protests against the jailed 5.

Yesterday afternoon, Shell security personnel watched helplessly from their compound as Shell to Sea supporters overturned bog tracks that were laid to enable heavy machinery to build the next stage of the Corrib gas pipeline.

Since Tuesday Shell has been trying to work on this most controversial part of their project, despite the fact that a judicial review of the Bord Pleanala permission for it is due this week. The campaigners from all over the country displaced more than 30ft of bog tracks.

Last night and this morning, Shell were blocked from accessing their newly created compound in Aughoose for 16 hours after a protester locked on underneath an IRMS security van that was blocking the entrance. Members of the local community and Rossport Solidarity Camp kept vigil throughout the night, worried that IRMS might try to use similar violence to the night that Willie Corduff was beaten up while under a lorry at the Glengad compound in 2009. read full story / add a comment
