This is for the record.
I am very angry that my government here in Ireland has granted licences to 2 Gas Companies, to drill for gas in the NW of Ireland. In all probability these companies will use Hydraulic Fracturing as a method for extracting the gas. If this happens, I will not stand idly by. I intend protesting as a means to stop this from going ahead. I will not give up. If that means Court and Prison, then so be it.
We have been told that there is a regulator to protect the environment. Well, so much for the regulator who regulated the banks! I don’t feel protected by my government! I realise that people must do what they can to protect their environments from the catastrophic need of the Men of Greed.
Ireland MUST be protected from the environmental disaster that is ‘Fracking.’ Once poisoned, our water, instead of being the water of life it now is, becomes the water of death for all living creatures on our Sacred Land.
That’s it. For the record.
