Shell to Sea, Dublin, held a solidarity picket outside Shell's headquaters in Leeson Street Dublin Tuesday 16th February 2010. This video is from that event.

Local people in Erris, Co Mayo, have been involved in a longterm battle to force Shell, the multinational corporation to refine gas offshore instead of their more dangerous plans to refine the raw gas onshore.

Local fifth generation fishernman Pat O'Donnell has been sentenced to 7 months imprisonment on a charge of a 'breach of the peace' and for 'obstructing a Garda'.

He is currently in Castlerea prison in Co. Roscommon, Ireland.

Brilliant work in protesting the continuing injustice in Erris, of which the jailing of Pat O'Donnell is the latest outrage. Keep telling them - the people are waking up!

How to cover up a mess: make a HELL of a mess, injure a few who are prepared to criticise, steal the people's land and livelihood and hope nobody notices the first show of incompetence
