Shell halted as Shell to Sea '8' are illegally detained.

Shell digger used disgracefully to assist Gardaí in endangering the lives of protesters in the water.
This morning at 10am, 15 Shell to Sea activists entered the water at Glengad Beach to stop Shell pipeline excavation work. Dinghies, surfers and swimmers surrounded the machine and stopped the work by their presence in the water.
8 people in all were brought to Belmullet Station, however, it is wrong to state that these people were arrested. The Gardaí never formally arrested the protestors and didn’t state under which section they were detained by the Gardaí. So it is more accurate to say that 8 protestors were “illegally detained” rather than arrested (all protestors were also unnecessarily handcuffed). All 8 were released without charge, with the last being released around 6pm.
