Business World: Relatives call for Shell boycott

Business World: Relatives call for Shell boycott

Friday, July 01 2005

(BizWorld)

Relatives of some of the five men imprisoned for breaching injunctions in the dispute over the construction of the Corrib gas pipeline have called for a national boycott of Shell and Statoil service stations.

Protesters also urged people to put pressure on the Government to withdraw permission for the development

Brid Ni Sheighin, a daughter of jailed protester Micheal O Seighin, read out a statement on behalf of the men, who were jailed on Wednesday for breaching a court order to stop obstructing work on the pipeline.

The men’s statement read: “This pipeline is unsafe by Shell’s own international standards. It must not pass the houses. There is an easy solution: Clean it (the gas) at sea.”

As well as calling for a public boycott of Shell and Statoil service stations, she said people should picket the constituency clinics of the Minister for Natural Resources, Noel Dempsey, who, she said, had the power to reroute the pipeline.
