Today at mid-day shell to sea and rossport solidarity camp walked onto shell land, destroying fences, and yet again clashing with security guards in the ongoing dispute over the corrib gas field.

The brutality of some individuals on the shell security site was witnessed and re-stressed a serious concern long prevalent in the campaign.

It began as a mass trespass until some protesters started removing fences. One individual was manhandled and their calls attracted the main group who then managed to remove a whole section of fencing in roughly fifteen minutes.

The security guards were quite restrained upon initial entry with mild verbal exchanges between both groups, however
the clashes began to turn violent when campaigners began removing fences on sections of the land. The security guards intervened exercising force, injuring a few campaigners.

Notably several security guards had their numbers hidden and refused to identify themselves when asked. With video cameras on both sides capturing any unjust aggression towards individuals, the situation didnt hit a critical point with only only minor injury's sustained to protesters.

this dispute has been ongoing for over a decade with no consent from the local community.Energy's run high as the pipe enters its final stages of development. However, shells work is put back another day due to strength in numbers and an effective protest. Actions continue
