Celebrating over a decade of resistance to Shell
Calling all you bands, performers, artists, musicians, circus acrobats, puppeteers, fire jugglers, workshop facilitators (from weavers to poets to dancers to facepainters to storytellers to herbalists...)
This is your chance to support the community here in Mayo.
Since the recent successes of the film ‘The Pipe’ by Risteard Ó Domhnaill and Lorna Siggins’ book ‘Once upon a time in the West’ (Book of the year 2010) the community campaign in Erris has received a huge amount of interest. This is especially due to the fact that public services are being cut whilst the people of Ireland will receive no economic benefit from Corrib gas. Many people who trusted the government and Shell are beginning to realise that the whole project is wrong and it’s not too late to make the changes needed, both in terms of safety and the economic deal.
