The indigenous people of Rossport are not the only threatened by oil and gas exploration.
In March 2006, the US Senate passed a measure in the budget bill that opened the Artic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling - as the region suffers from some of the worst oil spills in its history from the pipelines to the existing Prudhoe Bay facilities.
One of the Indian peoples threatened by this invasive development are the Gwich'in, whose Alaskan settlements are over 20,000 years old and whose lives are centred around the now-threatened Porcupine Caribou. read full story / add a comment

In a press release on 19th August 2006, the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources, Noel Dempsey, announced the latest round of exploration licences for the Donegal, Slyne and Erris Basins. The future of Ireland's oil and gas resources is now being decided by the Irish Government in a process patently lacking in democratic legitmacy and accountability. These issues were debated at the “Exploring Atlantic Ireland 2006” conference sponsored by the Department and other interested parties. The conference discussed the so-called Irish Atlantic Margin Petroleum Province, the industry term for the Porcupine, Rockall, Slyne, Erris, and Donegal basins. The conference press statement stated that what it termed the “waters west of Ireland” contain several large sedimentary basins, broadly similar geologically to the basins of the Atlantic margins of Norway, the UK (the North Sea fields), and Canada (the Newfoundland fields). read full story / add a comment

The March began at the old railway station in Navan town at Railway Street to draw attention to the fact that this alternative mode of transport has not been seriously considered by the planners. A large crowd gathered, long time campaigners, new campaigners, families with small children who had their faces painted, sported Save tara stickers and carried balloons.

The Skelligs Rocks, 8 miles off the coast of Co. Kerry, constitute one of only two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ireland. However, the Office of Public Works (OPW) is currently engaged in reconstruction work there. On the South Peak of Skellig Michael, an altar, dating probably to the ninth century, has been destroyed by unsupervised workmen. In addition, there has been extensive rebuilding carried out on the main complex, which has led to considerable damage to the original structures. The work has proceeded without an Environmental Impact Assessment; while the Department of the Environment and OPW have argued that, because the Skelligs are a national monument (thus covered by the National Monuments Act 2004) and because the current work is part of an ongoing programme of conservation dating back to the 1980’s, neither an EIA nor planning permission is necessary. read full story / add a comment

An important event is taking place on Wednesday and Thursday (8th to 9th November) in the Burlington Hotel, Dublin. Ireland’s Atlantic “Petroleum Province” is being discussed. Confused? This “Province” consists of all the Irish Atlantic oil and gas fields that have been explored so far.
At present, the Irish Government is handing out licences to Shell, Exxon-Mobil, Statoil, and others as fast as they can. The Irish Government and the global oil and gas industry are working in close partnership, and have been for many years. Shell and Statoil, the energy multinationals involved in the Corrib project, will be represented, as will the Minister for Marine and Natural Resources, who is to give the opening address.
Follow the links below for further details. It is important that this event is advertized widely, and actively picketed, to express the outrage of the public against this collaboration of elected representatives in the giveaway of Ireland’s natural resources. read full story / add a comment

This is a proposal for a public conversation and public meeting, dedicated to examining the economic arguments for and against the M3 motorway. It is vital that this conversation occur, in the wake of the EU reports, criticizing Ireland's record on carbon emissions and Stern report which warns of the threat to the world economy if radical action is not taken. read full story / add a comment
