The action was carried out in solidarity with the people of Rossport, whose lives are threatened by the high pressure pipeline which would go through their community to bring money to one of the most damaging companies in the world. Whilst the people of Ireland are being crippled by the cuts in public services, the corrupt government is giving away the country's natural resources to a company well known for environmental damage, disastrous accidents and human rights abuses. The action was also done to highlight other atrocities committed against people and the environment by Shell, such as the Niger Delta and the tar sands in Canada.
People around the world are resisting by defending their communities and environment against Shell.
