Join the continuous protests against Shell
Saturday May 07, 2011 20:21 by rossport solidarity camp rossportsolidaritycamp at gmail dot com rossport solidarity camp, aughoose, co.mayo 0851141170
Come to Mayo!
Direct Action at Work!
We are taking continuous action to frustrate Shell's work and need your support. 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! The injustice faced by the community here is symbolic of the corruption and problems faced by people all over Ireland.

If you have problems accessing the shelltosea site directly, try going HERE and typing in the web address.
If you have ever wanted to take action and be part of the campaign, the time is now.
Come up and see for yourself what's at stake. Meet the affected community who have managed to stop Shell for over a decade!
We warmly welcome visitors to learn about the campaign and help work with the local community to resist Shell’s Corrib Gas Project.
The Rossport Solidarity Camp is in Aughoose and we are now all based here. It is fully set up with 2 communal sleeping spaces in benders, 3 marquees for meetings, tools and our kitchen, a wash area and toilets. We also have a house in the nearby village of Poll an tSómais.
There is always plenty to get involved with: protesting, support, banner making, building & maintaining the new camp, writing reports, taking photos, gardening, cooking etc. No experience necessary, whatever you skills or interests, the camp is an exciting and inspiring place to visit. We can offer direct action training for beginners and a legal briefing so you know your rights.
We are always balancing campaign work with trying to make the camp/house and garden as self sufficient and as sustainable as possible.
We use collective decision making and plan safe and effective actions as a group. Protests have been continuous since Shell restarted work on 28th March 2011.
Shell work Mon-Fri but there is also plenty to do during the weekends if you can only make it up then.
Just email email@example.com or txt/ring 0851141170 to let us know when you plan to arrive.
It's easy to get to Ballina from anywhere in the country by bus, train, hitching or by car. From Ballina, the Mcgraths minibus runs Mon-Sat 5pm & drops off right outside the camp.
What are Shell’s plans?
The tunnel which Minister for the Environment, Phil Hogan signed off on the Foreshore Licence for Shell is planned to run under Sruwaddacon Estuary which is designated a Special Area of Conservation.
Shell's planned tunnel:
* 4.9 kilometers long
* 4.2 meters in diameter
* 15 months of tunneling
* 24 hour a day tunneling
* 944 truck movements a day at peak construction
* 68,000 m3 of material removed
* 2.5 km of 3m high fencing
The construction period is 26 months.
What you can do now:
1. Come up to the camp! If you can only come up once this year, make plans to come up soon. Ask your friends and all those you know have been involved in the campaign over the years to book time off also and make plans to come up.
2. Do a stall and leaflet your local town. We have new leaflets, stickers and posters, please email your address to be sent some. We can also come and give talks or screen the pipe film in your town.
3. Get in touch if you would like us to give a direct action workshop in your area, to prepare people to come up or we can hold one up at the camp.
4. If you cannot make it up here at the moment, solidarity actions at garages, government offices & subcontractors are other great ways of supporting the campaign.
