Dublin Shell to Sea to mark Pat O’Donnell’s 100th day in prison with protest at Shell HQ on Friday 21st May

Dublin Shell to Sea will hold a protest at Shell HQ on Lower Leeson Street at 5pm on Friday 21st May. The protest has been called in solidarity with imprisoned Erris fisherman and prominent Shell to Sea campaigner Pat O’Donnell (52) and coincides with his 100th day in prison.

Last February Pat was sentenced to seven months in prison for alleged breach of the peace and allegedly obstructing a garda. His imprisonment followed a series of incidents in which Pat faced regular harassment from both Gardaí and members of Shell’s private security firm I-RMS.
