Supporters of the jailed Mayo men known as the “Rossport Five” are taking their campaign to the streets of the capital today.

The five were jailed for contempt-of-court after refusing to back-down in their protest action against oil-giant Shell's construction of a high pressure gas pipeline through their lands.

All five are now entering their fourth week behind bars at Cloverhill Prison where they are likely to remain for the foreseeable future unless they purge their contempt

Protest organiser Eoin O’Broin said that their supporters remain as determined as ever: “There is a growing momentum behind this campaign to get the five men released and also to have the whole refining process moved out to sea in shallow water, where it really should have been in the first place.”
