Statement on behalf of the Rath Lugh Direct Action Camp
21st century souterrain

The Protectors at Rath Lugh have planned a Direct Action method used
for
the first time on protest sites in Ireland. They have dug a tunnel
under
the route of the M3 directly in front of the Rath Lugh promontory
fort
in the Gabhra Valley, Co Meath in Ireland.

The Protectors intend to occupy this tunnel and seal themselves
inside
indefinitely to prevent construction traffic from passing overhead.
They
are laying their very lives on the line to protect and preserve
Tara's
landscape from the destruction wrought by their own Government.

The Protectors said: "We want to draw attention to the continued
erosion
of the esker by passing construction traffic, hence damaging the
base
and foundation of the Rath."

This is a continuation of their non-violent direct action. The
tunnel
acts like a souterrain giving the occupant protection and making it
very
difficult for the enemy to enter.
