Food will be cooked communally, donations welcome.
Accommodation is available in the camp house or book in to the lovely Kilcommon lodge hostel http://www.kilcommonlodge.ie

Get ready to Stop Shell!
Get ready to Stop Shell!

The Shell to Sea campaign has successfully used non violent direct action for the last 11 years to frustrate, delay and try to stop Shell's destructive project. We take direct action because the Government has failed us and the authorities that are supposed to protect communities and the environment have refused to act. So we have no choice but to protect it ourselves. We also take action to inspire other communities to do the same. Whether it's stopping Shell illegally drilling in a Special Area of Conservation or blocking the trucks carrying building materials for this experimental and dangerous project, using direct action works! So come along & get prepared...

Shell's Corrib Gas Project is already decade late and 3 times over budget- impressive for a rural community fighting one of the biggest multinationals in the world!

There is a huge global history of non-violent direct action campaigns. Martin Luther King and Gandhi symbolise the most well known campaigns but there have been thousands of successful direct action campaigns in our history. Nvda was used during the anti-war campaign at Shannon airport, in the civil rights marches, during the amazing anti-nuclear campaign at Cansore Point and also to kick out dirty industries such as Raytheon, Merrell Dow and Raybestos Manhattan.

The Rossport Solidarity Camp has guidelines which state that all actions must be agreed by consensus at the camp. Non violent direct action is used in parallel with other campaigning tools such as engaging in the planning process, lobbying, public meetings and taking legal challenges against Shell.

As Frederick Douglass, the US abolitionist orator said in 1857:
"If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess
to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation…want crops
without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder
and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of
its many waters…. Power concedes nothing without a demand.
It never did and it never will."
