Dan Boyle, formerly Bertie Ahern's choice for senator, is running for election in Cork South Central once again. This means he has to present a justification of his and his party's record as part of this government we've suffered for getting on four years. One of the ways he has been doing this is through his election literature, some of which I received in the post only this morning. After reading it, I must say I was surprised at the level of grandiose self-delusion on display in this leaflet! read full story / add a comment

A decade after the process was begun to impose an experimental raw gas pipeline and refinery on the people of Erris we are entering into the final stage of the battle opposing its construction. Shell are about to attempt to lay the onshore pipe. Shell always expected this to be the most difficult part of the struggle which is why they left the attempt to build this section of pipeline till last. Dublin Shell to Sea are asking you to come to a meeting to plan how we can resist this final stage. read full story / add a comment

Today members and supporters of Dublin Shell to Sea gathered the top of Grafton Street to distribute €540 billion ‘commemorative bank notes’ to members of the public, symbolising the cost to the exchequer of the extraordinary giveaway of Ireland’s oil and gas reserves. This was part of a national Shell to Sea day that saw leafletting in 8 other towns and cities around Ireland as well as Dublin. read full story / add a comment

Dear politician,

Economically speaking we are being sold out by our elected representatives via the nationalisation of bank debt, while anything of value – such as our oil and gas resources - are given away via privatization.

Socially we are losing a generation to emigration, most of whom will never return, nor will have any economic reason to do so without a reversal of how this nation is managed.

Now in a state of desperation for employment, any environmental sacrifices dictated by private infrastructural projects will be justified by the offer of temporary construction jobs – crumbs off the plate while the corporations feast on our rich natural resources. read full story / add a comment

Saturday - Dublin Shell to Sea Stall – 14.00hrs – 15.30hrs St. Stephen’s Green end of Grafton Street – 12th Feb. 2011

An Irish general election fever grips the Country, where promises flow like water running off a mountain, and where the sun, the moon, and the stars are laid at the feet of the people, all for the sake of a no. 1 on the day itself.

From looking around us now you witness the desperate scramble of prospective candidates to get into power in the Dáil, to receive their €100,000 PA salary’s plus expenses. Jobs and Reform appear to be on top of the agenda, yet no one appears to be responsible for the transgressions of the past. Also all these Jobs will not take place without investment, yet since we are effectively broke and availing of an unsustainable loan from the IMF/ECB to pay for the speculators losses, it is hard to see how this promise of jobs will come to pass read full story / add a comment

Defend Free Speech- Fight PSNI and Unionist intimidation
QUB Republican Congress has been prevented by Unionists and their supporters from being registered as a full society despite having fulfilled all the SU requirements. As a result the society is being prevented from holding meetings on SU or college property. Having had three successful public meetings before Christmas in private venues with three hundred in attendance the society has planned a full list of meetings/protests for the coming term. However PSNI/RUC intimidation has resulted in access to these private venues also being denied to the society. However 'The Republican Congress' is determined to push ahead and plans to hold the first two meetings as open air events in front of QUB Students Union.

Defend Free Speech and attend these meetings.

On Thursday 20th January An Bord Pleanála announced their decision to approve the Shell high pressure raw gas pipeline. This is the last chance to resist the plan by the Irish Government, state bodies and Shell to force their will on communities and on the country as a whole, regardless of proper process, economic sense, people’s safety, environmental laws and human rights. Whilst the people of Ireland are being crippled by the cuts in public services and forced in to huge EU and IMF debt, the great gas giveaway is the elephant in the room that could be our solution. The unjust deal can be renegotiated as we have successfully seen in other countries. The people of Ireland should have a say in how we sustainably manage our natural resources. The struggle against Shell is a struggle for everyone in Ireland. You can be part of it. read full story / add a comment

In the next few weeks, more than likely An Bord Pleanála will be announcing their decision on whether to grant permission to Shell to build the onshore section of the Corrib Gas pipeline. Below is a review of the reopened oral hearing that ran from the 24th of August until the 1st of October in 2010 in Belmullet. Again (this is the fourth convening of an oral hearing), opponents of the Corrib Gas Project made lengthy and comprehensive submissions on why they are opposed to the project. A fair few of these submissions can be read in full here: http://www.ShelltoSea.com/content/submissions-bord-pleanala read full story / add a comment
