The Rossport Solidarity Camp June Bank Holiday Gathering is back! From Friday 29th May till Monday 1st June we will be holding a Camp Gathering combining info sharing, direct action training, music and fun ...

Last year resistance in Mayo was incredible. Shell's Solitaire pipe laying ship was forced to leave Irish waters with no pipeline laid! This year resistance continues, and the ship will be forced to leave once again.

Come to this year's Rossport Solidarity Camp Gathering to find out more about the campaign, share skills and make plans for another summer of Action.

Gathering Workshops and Events will include:

History of the Shell to Sea Campaign.
Tours of the local area.
Drawing links with the Wiwa -v- Shell trial in New York.
Direct Action training for land and water based action.
Knowing your fundamental and legal rights
Facilitation training & Consensus Decision Making.
Health, Safety and Environmental impacts of the Shell Corrib gas project.
Corrib and climate change: Shell to Sea or Shell to hell?
Music and Craic.

Call Out for Help!
If you know any bands/musicians, want to play music, know people who would like to run skill share workshops, want to help with the kitchen crew, help with children's events or a creche, volunteer during the gathering, or help with publicity then please do get in touch.

The Gathering will take place at the Rossport Solidarity Camp on the coast at Glengad.
Bring a tent, sleeping bag, wellies, raingear and a torch.
However if you need a bed in the camp house let us know in advance and we'll make every effort to accommodate you.

Meals will be provided at the camp.

Fair play to the camp for organising this amongst all other business. Can heartily recommend coming to this event after so many successful ones in the past. The bond between community and national and international support is special at these events.

Beir Bua amigos.

What about the Afri Famine walk on May 30th? It's being led this year by Willie and Mary Corduff, with Philip Ikurisi from the Niger Delta. Would it not be better to avoid a clash with this?

the Afri walk is ten miles, but it's not at Glengad - it follows the old famine route from Doolough to Louisburgh. Details are at http://www.afri.ie

Hi everyone, we are sending the bus from Galway to gathering, but there are some people who need to get back earlier than on Monday/the bus times don`t suit them from different reasons. If there are any people driving by car and willing to give a lift to someone could you please contact galway shell to sea 086 159 0934 so we could get more people up there.

Fog everywhere.
Fog up the river, where it flows among green aits and meadows; fog down the river, where it rolls defiled among the tiers of shipping and the waterside pollutions of a great (and dirty) city.
Fog on the Essex marshes, fog on the Kentish heights. Fog creeping into the cabooses of collier-brigs; fog lying out on the yards, and hovering in the rigging of great ships; fog drooping on the gunwales of barges and small boats.
Fog in the eyes and throats of ancient Greenwich pensioners, wheezing by the firesides of their wards; fog in the stem and bowl of the afternoon pipe of the wrathful skipper, down in his close cabin; fog cruelly pinching the toes and fingers of his shivering little prentice boy on deck. Chance people on the bridges peeping over the parapets into a nether sky of fog, with fog all round them, as if they were up in a balloon, and hanging in the misty clouds.
Gas looming through the fog in divers places in the streets, much as the sun may, from the spongey fields, be seen to loom by husbandman and ploughboy. Most of the shops lighted two hours before their time — as the gas seems to know, for it has a haggard and unwilling look.

Any use?

Just wanted to share my excitement for this year's gathering! I was lucky to be able to tag along last year while traveling through Ireland, and this year should be just as great, if not better!
