Succesful pickets in Dublin against Statoil in solidarity with Rossport 5
On Friday WSM members in Dublin and Cork took part in blockades of Statoil garages and the Shell deport in solidarity with the Rossport 5 - jailed for opposing a dangerous gas pipeline. Here are reports from WSM members at the various garages.
Good turnout for Cabra Statoil picket
Just over 25 people turned out for the blockade of Statoil on the New Cabra Road this evening. Very few cars entered the station but a police car and van were sent down to keep an eye on his.
Local people from Stoneybatter and Cabra took part in the picket - they included members of at least four different political organisations. Very few cars tried to enter the station and of those that did around a third turned around after we talked to the drivers.
There was lots of support from passing motorists including a bus driver who was actually from Rossport. Although 6 Gardai turned up they mostly kept their distance.
Statoil picket Clondalkin
About 11 or 12 people turned out for the statoil picket in Clondalkin this evening- some from Sinn Fein a couple of swp from Ballyfermot and also labour party and their counsellor for the area Robert Dowds and others there in an individual capacity.
Some motorists crossed the picket, we talked to others coming into the station and they showed support by turning back and not entering we had alot of beeps by passing cars and one taxi driver said the place was dead compared to what it is usually like in the evening so something must have been done right! The guards showed up when we were preparing to leave so no hassle from them anyway.
Statoil in Ballsbridge
Up to 20 people picketed from 5pm to 7.30pm. Huge support from passing cars and pedestrians. During the two-and-a-half hour picket, only two cars ignored us and used the pumps. For some reason, every number 7 bus that passed honked, not the other buses.
Mobile phone report - around 9 people took part, few cars crossed.
