Friday protests

1.The Rossport Five will be in Court again on Friday 7th April. Protest outside the Four Courts from 10 AM. This hearing will decide what punishment the men will receive from the President of the High Court for refusing to obey a court injunction last year (for which they have already spent 94 days in prison). The five men are refusing to accept any criminalisation of their actions, so any fine or court order could result in them being sent back to prison. People are asked to join the protest at the Four Courts from 10 AM onwards.

Call Tadhg on 087 618 1620 for more information on this protest.

2. Lunchtime Protest at the Statoil Headquarters, 6 George's Dock , IFSC 1-2PM Friday April 7th. Assemble at the new pedestrian bridge across the Liffey (Sean O'Casey Bridge), at 12.45PM. Protest at the Statoil building from 1-2. This protest is to draw attention to Statoil's part in the scheme to install a dangerous, experimental raw-gas pipeline through residential areas in north Mayo. Statoil are a major shareholder in the scheme, yet they have behaved from the beginning as though the controversial pipeline has nothing to do with their company. This lunchtime protest is designed to encourage Statoil and the Norwegian Government (who own them) to take ownership of the scheme and live up to their responsibilities to the Irish people.

Shell to Sea activists will deliver a symbolic section of the pipeline to Statoil's Office at lunchtime on Friday 7th.
Meet at the new pedestrian bridge (Sea O'Casey Bridge) at 12.45PM.
Call Franc on 086 853 7281for more information on this protest.
