In the west of Ireland, the huge multinational energy company Shell, with partners Statoil (Norway) and Marathon (U.S.A.), is attempting to install a giant polluting gas refinery in a protected conservation area. Protesters are trying to stop them.

Even though all the gas refined (worth about 4 million euro per day) will belong to Shell, and the people of Ireland will gain nothing from losing the clean environment and their natural resources, the Irish government insists on backing the scheme.

Instead of arresting protesters, the police have been told to use violence to clear the roads.

Peaceful protests happen every day at the site. See www.shelltosea.com or www.indymedia.ie/mayo for more information.
