Joint Statement Feb 12, 2007  

The Corrib gas conflict has gone on for far too long. From the outset, there has been a failure to politically address the issues which have given rise to the conflict. There has been a refusal by those in political authority to recognise the depth and legitimacy of community opposition to the project. We call again on political representatives to show leadership and proactivly seek to resolve this dispute. Washing one’s hands of the issue is simply not good enough. A political solution offers the only viable solution.

For our part, we commit ourselves to work together to achieve this. We wish to ensure a safe project for the people of Mayo and one that yields real and significant benefits.

Finally, we call on Friday’s Day of Support in Bellanaboy to be conducted peacefully and with respect for all and we appeal to the Gardai to exercise restraint and discipline in their policing.

Dr Jerry Cowley

Dr Mark Garavan.
