"The Government have clearly sent the message to Shell, ‘you can do whatever you want’. Fortunately due to protest, the refinery remains unconnected to the gas field. If, as Shell planned, gas had been flowing by now, we would potentially all be dealing with a gas leak and explosion.”
Gardaí in North West Mayo routinely harass people in the area with video cameras (as well as violence), however they don't like it so much when the camera is turned on them.
One point to note is how often the Gardaí switch their numbers. The Garda whose on camera at 2:57 is a particularly violent Garda. In this video his Garda number is GA454. Five days after this video was taken he was wearing MY218 and assaulted 3 peaceful protesters.
