At a recent Friends of the Earth event in Liberty Hall Theater, Dublin Pat 'The Chief' O'Donnell spoke about his experiences with Shell in Mayo. His experience comes out of a community which goes back hundreds of years in the area and is deeply rooted to the environment in which they live. They feel more keenly than anyone the dangers of allowing Shell into the country and into their environment. The experience of the Ogoni people in the Niger Delta in Nigeria shows these fears are not unfounded.
