It is escorted by 2 Irish Navy gunboats, 18+ police and private security ribs a helicopter, 300 police and 180 private security on shore.

Interview with WSM member Fin at Rossport Solidarity camp

This is a 10 minute interview with Fin conducted as a lock on was in progress on the road blocking a Shell convoy.

Towards the end the news comes through of the car being driven through the gates of the compound. It was windy and rainy so there is a bit of noise in the recording now and then.
