THE daughter of one of the men jailed for opposing the Shell gas pipeline last night dismissed the company’s latest statement as a PR stunt.

Brid Ni Sheighin said Shell’s announcement that it was considering its legal options would not free her father, Micheal, from jail. read more

Labour calls on Shell to free Rossport Five

Ireland On-Line: Labour calls on Shell to free Rossport Five

“So the men are now in prison arising from a court injunction to stop them obstructing or interfering with the construction of a pipeline which was not itself legitimate from the very beginning,”…
