The picture that's emerging, more and more powerfully by the day, is that the leaders of the legal profession in the Republic of Ireland are very deliberately (and very perversely of course) preventing individuals, and small communities of individuals, from receiving the legal protection they are entitled to under human rights law.
What's really needed
by W. Finnerty. Wed Dec 19, 2007 09:43
What the Bellanaboy Community (i.e. Shell Oil Protestors) very badly needs in my view, and what I need myself, is a small group of good quality lawyers who will fight for our legal rights under human rights law. 
Unfortunately, at the present time it appears to be impossible to find any lawyers in the Republic of Ireland who are willing to use human rights law to defend the legal rights of individuals (such as myself for example), and small communities such as Bellanaboy.
This problem, regarding the failure of the Republic of Ireland's legal profession to recognise the extremely important role of human rights law in everyday life, is what (in my view) lays at the root of many - almost all possibly? - of our environmental problems.

  What are human rights
"Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, language, or any other status. We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible."

The above excerpt has been taken from the following United Nations location:

United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

  A selection of  media  organisations and personalities have also been informed about the way our Chief Justice (Mr John L. Murray), and his senior lawyer colleagues, are turning their backs on human rights law.  
  A copy of the e-mail used can be seen at the following address:  
  As can be seen at the above address, Geraldine Kennedy (Irish Times Editor) heads the list.
