Audio: Shell to Sea protests against jailing of fisherman Pat O'Donnell at Shell HQ

category dublin | environment | news report author Tuesday February 16, 2010 23:11author by Andrew - WSM - personal capacity Report this post to the editors

Over 50 Shell to Sea campaigners gathered at the Shell head quarters in Leeson street Dublin this evening to protest at the jailing of Erris fisherman Pat O'Donnell for resisting Shell's experimental gas pipeline. Pat received a seven month sentence which has the added benefit for Shell of taking his boat off of Broadhaven Bay for the period they need to carry out major underwater construction work and repairs. Pat has twice previously been arrested and held without charge when Shell has needed to carry out work in the bay.

The attached audio file is an interview with Dublin Shell to Sea spokersperson Caoimhe carried out during the protest which covers not only Pat's jailing but also the scale of the great oil and gas giveaway under which the energy corporations stand to pocket hundreds of billions that should be funding health and education. After Caoimhe there are some brief comments from Dermot about the anonymous nature of Shell's HQ. The audio file is about 10 minutes in duration.

That extra 80 million or so that they got from the mother company should come in handy this summer, what with The Chief being out of the way and Mayo County Council's coffers running low.
