John Monaghan is a resident of Rossport county Mayo and part of the Shell To Sea campaign. Shell's pipeline, if it were built, would be located less than 70km from his home. Here he speaks about how the jailing of his father in law Micheál Ó Seighin drew him into the campaign and how the struggle against Shell has raised greater national questions for him about local democracy and control of natural resources.

"Every problem we are facing in this country right now, like the health crisis...seems to be a lack of money, and we are giving this natural resource away when we should be developing it for the good of the country."

John also discusses last Fridays direct action, which stopped work at the refinery site for the first time since it began last October, and how the campaign can move on from here.
