Shell HQ Occupied inside and on roof in Dublin; plus Mayo & Cork actions

11.10.2006
Dublin:

At 12.30 p.m. 15 activists arrived at the Headquarters of Shell Exploitation and Production Ireland, six entered the lobby while another six climbed onto the roof. A couple more stayed on the pavement outside to chain some of the doors to the building and to speak to the media. A publically advertised protest was scheduled at this office for 1 p.m. so soon the advance party was joined by 40 to 50 more people. The cops arrived and were quite dozy not really knowing what to do. They took the names of the people in lobby but not the people on the roof. They attempted to access the roof via a window and ended up breaking it.
