We can win but we need you!
Come over & help out with actions, support, housekeeping, equipment maintenance, PR, office work, media work, gardening etc
Please consider doing one of the following:
•Come visit Mayo:
You would be more than welcome to stay at the camp. Find directions here: http://www.rossportsolidaritycamp.110mb.com/directions.html
There are jobs for everyone to do from making banners, doing actions or starting this year’s garden. There really was a good vibe at the camp last autumn and we’re hoping for more of the same this time round. Contact the camp if you’re coming or if you have any questions.
•Take action at Home
There’s a load than can be done from wherever you are. See http://www.rossportsolidaritycamp.110mb.com/support.html for some suggestions.
solidarity actions, do info stalls, show the campaign film, donate to the campaign, think of ideas for actions, put on a fundraiser...
If you are interested in helping to do research work about the new onshore pipeline application please email us.
During the winter many court cases have been proceeding against those who object locally, for a variety of charges, from traffic offences, public order breaches to Garda assaults. It goes without saying that no Gardai have been prosecuted for their vicious assaults to date. While some fines and suspended sentences have been handed down, and Gardai have perjured themselves on the stand and the judges have lapped it up, no one has been found guilty of Garda assault to date (some cases had to be appealed to secure this). There are still many Shell to Sea cases before the courts, from local people refusing to bend to the corrupt will of Shell and the state. They need help to continue resisting!
Shell have recently put in planning applications for the onshore section of the pipeline which can be seen here www.corribgaspipeline.com
The economic situation has utterly changed and most people in the country are seriously questioning corporate power and government subservience to that power. Recently even the Gardaí took to the streets to oppose government policy (and no one threw them off the road!!!).
We are in a lot more favourable times to try to get our message and points across than this time last year. But it will take lots of hard work, so we need your help.
