Shell to Sea Campaign: Shell to Sea protests in Dublin this weekend

There will be two garage protests in Dublin this weekend – one at Shell and one at Statoil.
Although the forecourt businesses have been sold, all the fuel sold at Shell and Statoil garages is still supplied directly from these companies, so asking consumers to boycott these petrol stations is a very valid way of expressing opposition to the Corrib gas scheme.

Shell are the major partner in Corrib, and Statoil own 36 per cent. Since Statoil is partly-owned by the Norwegian State, this means that people in Norway will see lasting benefits from Irish natural gas in the form of pensions, schools, roads and other infrastructure. There is no Irish stake in the Corrib scheme.

The protests this weekend mark the beginning of the lead up towards the next large protest at the Bellanaboy refinery site, which will be on February 1st.

Details of this weekend’s protests are :

Saturday 12noon Shell Finglas Road (Opposite Glasnevin Cemetery). From the city centre take bus number 40, or 40A, B, C, or D from Parnell Street.

Sunday 11.45 AM Statoil Ushers Quay (across the Liffey from the Four Courts).

Call 087 132 3369 for more information.
