Corrib campaigners protest as Shell announce €19.6 billion profit

category mayo | environment | news report author Saturday February 02, 2013 19:51author by S2S Report this post to the editors

Today, Shell to Sea held a morning protest outside Bellanaboy refinery to highlight Shell's announcement of profits of €19.6 billion for 2012.

Brandishing signs including “Shell Destroys Communities & Environment” and “Harmful to Local Community”, members of the community blocked trucks drawing material to Shell tunneling compound at Aughoose.

Speaking at the protest Shell to Sea spokesperson Terence Conway stated “These obscene profits announced by Shell this week come at the expense of communities and the environment where Shell operate”.

Mr Conway continued “Corrib clearly shows how far the government will go to serve corporate interests, they continue to put Shell interests before the interests of this community or indeed the whole country. This week, 95 rural Garda stations were closed down and yet this morning again you have Gardaí ready to jump to Shell's beck and call”.

Shell to Sea spokesperson Maura Harrington commented “The Government are still willing to force suffering on the people of Ireland through severe cutbacks, yet at the same time give our oil and gas away to multinational companies such as Shell, with no benefit to country. It is time for people to demand that this situation is changed”.

Shell trucks traveling to Glengad were disrupted a considerable bit in the last week, ranging in time from 2 hour blockages to a few minutes.
