(en) reland: Shell Oil Depot Blockade In Cork

Date Wed, 06 Jul 2005 15:11:48 +0300

Oil trucks were prevented from entering and leaving the Shell Central Oil Depot
in Cork this morning in solidarity with the Rossport 5 blockade [where Shell
have had five locals jailed for blocking the construction of a gas pipeline].
An early morning solidarity blockade by about 20 activists prevented oil trucks
from entering and leaving the Shell Central Oil Depot in Cork this morning. The
action began at 7.30 and continued until 8.45 am. A total of three gates were
picketed and about seven trucks in all either refrained from entering the depot
or were turned back.
The action was held in solidarity with the Rossport 5 and in the context of the
international blockade of the G8 Meeting in Gleneagles in Scotland. Those
participating included Shell To Sea, Cork Harbour Action Group, Traveller and
Settled Solidarity, Workers Solidarity Movement as well as individuals.

After about 15 minutes of picketing the Gardaí [Irish police - ed.] arrived,
following complaints by Shell Oil, Cork. As usual the Gardaí professed to be
only interested in securing the 'free-flow of traffic' in the industrial zone
of the Central Park Road area, and in pursuit of this objective they threatened
to 'arrest and clear' us all away. However the determined actions of the
blockade meant that the Gardaí were unable to achieve their objective. Truck
movements in an out of the depot were disrupted throughout.
