*** Gardai and Shell using force to proceed with refinery ***
– Gardai/Shell PR offensive under way.

– Solidarity / support needed asap.

Shell to Sea Press Release: October. 3, 2006

Overnight a large force of Gardai numbering in the hundreds and acting in support of Shell have sealed of the Bellanaboy site. The movement of local people has been restricted. One local woman has been removed to hospital by ambulance after been injured. At present over two hundred local people are gathered at the site with others prevented by Gardai from getting near the site. The Irish government are now actively engaged since early morning on the side of Shell against the local people who will not risk the safety of their families for a project that has little if any financial benefit for the Irish people. This is serious escalation of the dispute.
