This morning we heard that An Bord Pleanála (the Irish planning board) has granted Shell oil permission to finish their raw gas pipeline.

This project has already been delayed for 10years as a result of people campaigning and taking action against Shell. Now in its final stages it becomes even more important to take action against Shell.

While Ireland's economy sinks, the corrupt government is still giving away the
country's natural resources to a company well known for human rights abuses,
corruption, environmental damage and disastrous accidents.

From here to the tar sands in Canada, to oil fields in Iraq and Nigeria,Shell have
destroyed lives, communities and the environment with absolutely no considerations other than their profits.

We are calling for a sustained campaign of direct action to be taken against Shell.
We really need your help!

Please organise actions within your communities that will target Shell economically.

Shell only care about their profits, lets hit them where it hurts!
