Ireland.com: Shell to Sea protest passes peacefully

Saturday 24 February 2007

Around 500 hundred supporters of the Shell To Sea campaign marched in Dublin this afternoon in protest at the energy giant’s plans for a gas terminal and pipeline in Co Mayo.  

Among those participating are members of the Rossport Five, who spent 94 days in prison in 2005 for refusing to give an undertaking to stay away from protests at the site of Shell E&P Ireland’s proposed gas terminal in Bellinaboy, Co Mayo.

There have since been a number of violent protests at the site.

Today’s demonstration, which was entirely peaceful, is being monitored by several dozen gardaí. A number of anti-bin tax campaigners also took part in the march.
