SOS from Mayo!

We've had a busy winter, with the continued dragging out of Shell's onshore pipeline application, court appearances, and the excellent wind power course held last month. The summer promises to be very busy with Shell planning massive work in the Bay and the estuary.

The last week has been tough, with the jailing last week of local fisherman Pat O''Donnell for 7 months for convictions arising from protest against the Corrib Gas project.

Pat has been instrumental in opposing the project, upholding his fishing rights and refusing to be bought off by Shell. He has suffered for his stance: threats, assault, character assassination, damage and theft of property, false arrest and imprisonment, attempted murder at sea, and now incarceration.

Write in your support to Pat at:

Pat O’Donnell,
Castlerea Prison,
Co. Roscommon.

Or email the camp at rossportsolidaritycamp@gmail.com and we will pass on your messages of support.

If you would like to distribute an A4 sized poster in support of Pat O'Donnell contact Betty at kilcommonlodge@eircom.net
We'll put all posters and flyers in support of the chief up on www.shelltosea.com as soon as we can.
