Is this the kind of headlines we will some day read??
The BP saga continues off the coast of the US, and the question which has to be asked is could this kind of accident happen in the corrib gas field off the Irish coast. A fundamental review of all safety procedures must be top priority.
The whole notion that a foreign national can just plunder our national resources cannot be allowed to continue.
No government has the right to sell off the natural energy resources of the nation
The explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig that precipitated the vast Gulf of Mexico oil spill came after the well was capped with a relatively cheap type of casing, BP papers have revealed.
To cap costs, how do we know that Shell are doing the same off the Irish coast?
The fact we have the Greens in government, it is astonishing that they have not even called for such reviews on safety
I suppose we have yet again an example of the greens dumping their values for the allure of political power
The brave people fighting the shell company’s grab of Irish Gas should be supported as in my view they are the real eco warriors!
There may be a demo at the Anglo Irish Bank HQ again to-morrow morning anybody know anything about?

Shell to Sea activists occupy Dept of Energy/Resources – Today’s protest location today changed!

I have just received a phone call from a Dublin Shell to Sea activists saying that four members of DS2S have occupied the Dept. of Communications, Energy and Natural on Adelaide Road. They have chained themselves to a stairwell inside.
They are now calling for people to go down and support them. Also, the location of the planned demo to mark Pat O’Donnell’s 100th day in prison at 5pm today has now changed from outside Shell HQ on Leeson St to outside the Dept of C,E & NR on 29 – 31 Adelaide Road, Dublin 2 (its very near the original location anyway).
See you all there.

Earlier today campaigners with Shell to Sea entered the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources drapped in chains and locked together to mark the 100th day of the imprisonment of Erris fisherman Pat O’Donnell. This action is part of a national day of protest which includes a protest outside the HQ of Shell on Leeson street, only 50m from the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources. A public protest starts at 5pm tonight at Shell HQ just across the road from the department.
