Erris: Annual Shell to Sea gathering May bank holiday


Erris: The Rossport Solidarity Camp have called the annual Shell to Sea Summer Gathering for the May Bank Holiday weekend this year so that it happens while key construction is still underway.  Shell to Sea campaigners from around Ireland will be travelling to the camp for a weekend of protest and meetings, come and join us.  Local Shell to Sea groups will be helping people to travel, already Dublin are running a bus down on the Friday.

The announcement from the RSC follows

Come up to the Rossport Solidarity Camp Summer Gathering for the May Bank Holiday weekend to see for yourself what's at stake and learn more about the campaign.

The injustice faced by the community here is symbolic of the corruption and problems faced by people all over Ireland.

Come for a weekend of workshops & actions. Meet the affected community and hear their stories of resistance to Shell. See this incredible place and go on the Walk the Pipe tour. This will be a family friendly space with a kid's area.

Stopping Shell's proposed Corrib Gas Project would safeguard the environment, the health and safety of those who live here and the €600 billion oil and gas that should belong to the people of Ireland.

This will be a busy time for actions as Shell will be attempting to work on the pipeline so if you haven't been up to the camp yet, the gathering is a great time to get involved.

Bring your tent & sleeping bag. Food will be cooked collectively, donations welcome.
If you have ideas, can help with setting up the camp or would like to run a workshop, please get in touch.

Please spread the word!
Print poster & put up in your workplace/college/community centre/local shop
