Discussions: Update on the campaign, questions and answers about Shell to Sea, life on the camp and actions

The Corrib gas project is the extraction of a natural gas deposit off the northwest coast of Ireland. The project includes constructionof a natural gas pipeline and a gas processing plant. Opposition to the plans among local residents have grown since 2000 when local residents were bullied by Shell and the government forced the planning permission through. The pipeline is experimental andpotentially dangerous especially running so close to their town.
In 2005 five locals refused Shell access to their land and were jailed at the request of Shell. Since then the Garda (the police force in Ireland) and Shell's private security have used force and intimidation to silence the local community, buy off people who could be bought and beating or jailing people that could not. At later protests masked men (most likely Shell) hospitalized one of the farmers. The offshore sections of the pipe were laid in the sea by the Solitaire. When local fishermen resisted a fisherman's boat was boarded by four masked men and sunk leaving the fishermen in hospital.  Many people in the area have been resisting for years andare very happy to receive outside support. There is a constant camp called the Rossport Solidarity Camp where people can go andsupport the local struggle.  

Come along to find out more about the campaign and to enjoy a night of celebration.
