"This is one example of how neo-liberalism furthers what we call accumulation by dispossession, which means turning commonly-owned goods into private capital and into something which only a few people can benefit from, and where most people lose out."

"Does Statoil really want to be part of this kind of politics, which is so different from the policy we have followed in Norway? Does Statoil really want to take part in a project where the Irish police are using patriarchal techniques of power like threats of rape?"
