Mobilisation plan by Shell Corrib gas project protesters

Nearly 4 years ago I published an article predicting a public relations disaster for Shell in Ireland in relation to the Corrib gas project being imposed against the wishes of local people gravely concerned by environmental and safety issues. 

I also made the same prediction in an interview on Dublin Radio in August 2005 when I also predicted Shell would use undercover agents to gather intelligence and engage in other sinister activities against the protest group. The latter prediction has also come to pass

The PR train crash is still in progress

EXTRACTS FROM EMAIL circulated 24  May 2009 by Shell to Sea Campaign, all at The Rossport Solidarity Camp.

DIRECT ACTION against Shell’s recent and ongoing works, including their plans to bring back the Solitare Pipelaying ship in mid-June, is the name and aim of the game.

COME TO MAYO now and any time. Stay at the camp after the gathering. Let’s build a momentum and a critical mass of people, this Summer, to STOP SHELL at GLENGAD … AGAIN. The time to come is Now.

RECENT UPDATE, including Maura Harrington’s re-arrest and jailing for non-payment of a fine, can be read here:

See you at the camp.
