Stall The Hundred Day Headlines In Norway: Free At Last: A Breakfast For Champions

category international | miscellaneous | feature author Sunday October 02, 2005 23:28author by Rossport 5 - shell to sea Report this post to the editors

"Shellshock Rock" sez Wag "Banned in Norway"

FROM THE COMMENTS:
On the 16th of June 2005, "Bloomsday" the 5 were still free, and protesting. That was the morning the Corduff's abandoned breakfast was photographed and we read of how Shell had illegally entered the lands in Rossport to begin illegal work on an illegal pipeline. Mr. Corduff's Bloomsday Brekkie will have gone cold by now. It would not be sexist to suggest Mrs. Corduff will make him another with cuddles on top.

20:00hrs 30/09/2005

We the Rossport 5 would like to thank our neighbours, friends and fellow Irish citizens for the loving support we and our families have received during these 94 traumatic days. In addition we would like to thank the incoming Norwegian government for their respect, support and assistance. We remind SHELL and their Irish government partner that imprisonments have historically and will always fail as a method to secure the agreement of Irish people.

We now call on our supporters to intensify the campaign for the safety of our community and families. We invite all citizens to join with us at a national rally tomorrow (Sat 1st Oct - Ed: Reports and Photos) Saturday, October 1st. The rally will depart from the Garden of Remembrance at 2pm and march to the Dáil. The campaign has now begun in earnest.

Brilliant to see the 5 Rossport men released.
The Saturday Rally was well attended.
The 5 men of Rossport were dignified and articulate since their release.
They have right on their side and deserve our continued support

The jarring point for me on the Friday was to witness some politicians practically pushing people out of the way to get into the photographs.A look at the papers on Saturday will identify them
It was the same on the television news on Friday night with rubbernecking politicians pushing their way into the frame
I would absolve Gerry Cowley from involvement of this show and tell exercise by some political ambulance chasers.
The same people were conspicious by their absence on pickets on petrol stations. No camera no show.
