A group from Shell to Sea Mayo made the 400 mile round trip to Dublin to make sure that Shell will not be allowed to forget the fact that nine men were judicially hanged and that many people worldwide still believe this was done at the behest of Shell. In 2009 Shell paid an out of court settlement of $15.5 million in Wiwa v Shell which they called a humanitarian gesture but it was money well spent because it kept murky details out of open court.
