Targets and victims of British undercover police operations in Ireland

Targets and victims of British undercover police operations in Ireland speak out, demand answers and action

—  Shell to Sea supports Jason Kirpatrick and other Core Participants in UCPI/Pitchford Inquiry  —

A press event jointly organised by Jason Kirkpatrick and Shell to Sea is scheduled for Buswell’s Hotel on Monday 06 February from 11.00am to 1pm.

Jason Kirkpatrick was a victim in Ireland of British undercover officer Mark Kennedy. Mr. Kirkpatrick is a former Deputy Mayor from Arcata, California, and is a “Core Participant” in the Undercover Policing Inquiry (UCPI) which covers England and Wales.

Why is it that the UCPI has been established in England to examine what the London Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has admitted are Human Rights abuses, yet although the same British officers operated in Ireland, the Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald has, once again, chosen to keep all related information locked behind closed doors?  Secret international undercover police operations across Europe have now been exposed, and targets of these political police “spycops” will be explaining what has happened to them, and what they demand of the Irish government in order to find the truth.

Shell to Sea has repeatedly called for an international panel of inquiry to examine the many human and civil rights abuses which took place in Erris, north Mayo as a result of the Shell/Corrib project and have already sent a submission to the Pitchford Inquiry.[1]  Shell to Sea welcomes the internationalisation of calls for proper investigation into the policing of legitimate protest.

[1] Fitzgerald should seek answers on undercover British police in Ireland – Shell to Sea open letter to Francis Fitzgerald

http://shelltosea.com/content/fitzgerald-should-seek-answers-undercover-british-police-ireland

The Shell to Sea Campaign has three main aims:

1) That any exploitation of the Corrib gas field be done in a safe way that will not expose the local community in Erris to unnecessary health, safety and environmental risks.
2) To renegotiate the terms of the Great Oil and Gas Giveaway, which sees Ireland’s 10 billion barrels of oil equivalent off the West Coast go directly to the oil companies, with the Irish State retaining a 0% share, no energy security of supply and only 25% tax on profits against which all costs can be deducted.
3) To seek justice for the human rights abuses suffered by Shell to Sea campaigners due to their opposition to Shell’s inland refinery.
