Yesterday at 3pm Maura Harrington ended her 11 day hunger strike outside the Shell Glengad pipeline landfall site in County Mayo, Ireland.
BBC Political correspondent Andrew Marr once stated if a news headline ends in a question mark the answer is usually no. But in this instance it would seem the answer is a resounding yes, despite the Shell press release making no quote on Maura’s hunger strike, claiming the removal of the Solitaire was for repairs and repairs only.
The film Policing The Pollution: “Don’t Mention The Water”, exposing Shell’s pollution of the local water supply in Erris, County Mayo was released on Current TV in November 2007 and further released on Reel News in January 2008.
I also investigated and produced the Channel 4 report released in June 2007.
