BreakingNews.ie: Co Mayo pipeline protestors begin 80th day in prison


16/09/2005 - 10:48:05

Supporters of the five Co Mayo men jailed for obstructing work on the Corrib gas pipeline are due to mount a protest outside Cloverhill Prison today.

The demonstration was arranged to mark the 80th day that the so-called Rossport Five have spent in prison.

The men were jailed for refusing to obey a court injunction ordering them not to obstruct work on the pipeline.

They claim the structure poses an unacceptable risk to the local population and want an offshore terminal built as an alternative to pumping gas from the Corrib field directly onshore.
