Around thirty people took part in a protest at Shell HQ on Lesson street last night. Here are some photos and audio recording from the event.An odd feature of the picket was the two secret police men who were pretending to be journalists. When challenged the one with the camera claimed he was 'Tom' from the Independent. Why a photographer would bring along a mate with a video camera was unexplained. A call to the Independent newsdesk to check out Tom's tall tale was greeted with puzzlement, but don't expect an expose in tomorrows issue of secret police pretending to be journalists, after all the owner has substantial interests in oil exploration himself.
