Causeway at glengad compound 'washed away' by Shell to Sea action

category mayo | miscellaneous | news report author Tuesday June 02, 2009 18:23author by jerry Report this post to the editors

Part of the Shell causeway extending into the sea at Glengad was yesterday evening removed by Shell to Sea protesters. This was in protest at the illegal blocking of access to the public beach and to oppose the forcing of this unsafe project on the local community and the giveaway of Ireland's natural resources.

A group of about 30-40 people waded into the sea to gain access to the causeway, and proceeded to remove a large amount of the stone which makes it up. They were confronted by a 70 Shell security after about half an hour of the action, at which point the people left. An upbeat and playful mood prevailed over a beautiful evening.

The Rossport Solidarity Camp has again taken up residence in Glengad, and after a very successful weekend, including a number of actions, will build up the resistance to Shell over the coming weeks and months.

It was great fun doing it. Good work out, and then we played elbow chasing and the evolution game in the water while the security officer roasted in their heavy uniforms in the sun. It was FAB. Get up there folks. I'm buzzing after the weekend.

When i saw the gates of compound open to reveal two large groups of private security trotting towards us in military style .Kitted up with big boots hard hats and heavy leather gloves ,I very nearly contributed in a very personal way to the pollution of the beautiful bay...

A magnificent evening ,a wonderful time in the water ...the security guards did look a little disappointed, although one of them blew me a kiss...But there was something in the way he did it...

Video on the way

Terrific action, all! There is no local consent to the theft of the public beach or the dangerous, polluting, raw gas pipeline.

Reclaim Glengad beach, action against Shell in Mayo.After a busy weekend of actions and meeting at the June gathering at Rossport solidarity camp ,a final action was taken to remove a causeway built by Shell on the public beach at Glengad .

The video clearly demonstrates the overwhelming number of security employed by Shell to assist in the construction work at this site which is being deveoloped without proper planning permission in a special area of conservation which is or at least should be protected by law.
