London: The struggle against Shell in Mayo


WSM member Andrew Flood will present a talk for Dublin Shell to Sea on the struggle in Erris against Shell. 11am Room EB4a - 40 at the London Anarchist Bookfair at Queen Mary College in London’s East End

For the last decade residents of Erris in Mayo have been fighting the attempts by Shell to impose a dangerous experimental gas pipeline on their community.

They have been joined by campaigners from all over Ireland opposed to the billions of euro of gas and oil being handed over to the energy corporations by the Irish state.

Over the summer the Irish state deployed 300 police, two Navy gunboats and Airforce planes to back up 200 private security in protecting a key phase of the project.

This presentation which will include photos explains the key events and causes of this struggle.
