Oil piracy and resistance in Ireland

Letters

The Guardian, Friday 19 June 2009

A pity that John Vidal, in his account of indigenous resistance to oilcompanies (‘We are fighting for our lives and our dignity‘, 13 June) did not pick up on your excellent article “Fuelling the fury” (G2, 10 June) about Shell’s gas project at Rossport in Ireland. If he had, he would have discovered a drastic escalation of violence there on the very day “Fuelling the Fury” was published.

A local fisherman, Pat O’Donnell, had his boat hijacked out at sea by armed and masked men and sunk. He had long been protesting against Shell’s pipe-laying operations as destructive to his offshore livelihood; it now looks as though someone has decided that his livelihood should in any event be destroyed, to ensure he’ll be incapable of further maritime protest. Shell has denied any involvement of its employees in this act of piracy, but it appears someone else may have intervened.
