The footage for the first video, Shell to Sea : Loitering with intent near the Rossport Solidarity Camp, people's champion Margaretta D\'arcy investigates was shot on 29th June close to and at the rear of the Rossport Solidarity Camp, when the behemoth pipe-laying vessel, the Solitaire, was laying the pipe connecting Shell's Glengad compound and the gas head and when the camp was overtly and intimidatory policed with Gardai at the front and rear sandwiching the Shell to Sea activists and it was the latter melange of Guards and their black attired Public Order cohorts that the redoubable and much loved Margaretta D\'arcy confronted.

Below is a copy of an email I recieved from Stevo...

I've just been texted that the Solitaire is currently anchored off Donegal. This steps the need for people present on camp even higher. Subsequently anybody that can make it up there should try to do so. As I have been saying people are needed both to help run the camp and perform the actual actions. But they are needed NOW.

Anybody with access to spare boats, could they please donate them now too. read full story / add a comment

Prisoners en route to Guantanamo for Torture

The following letter has been published in the Irish Times on 9th May 2008. This is a significant development, because the Gardai and the Irish Government authorities have clearly failed to carry out their duties towards prevention of the crimes of torture at Shannon airport. This however does not relieve the citizens of Ireland of their responsibilty to prevent torture. It is the moral and legal duty of all Irish citizens to take 'all neccessary means' to prevent the possible continuing use of Shannon airport by the CIA and the US military for the purpose of transporting prisoners for torture. read full story / add a comment
