people desperately needed for irish protest camp

we really need people from feb 25th 2006 onwards to come to the rossport solidarity camp in co. mayo ireland.

a multi national consortium led by shell plan to build a really dangerous raw high pressure gas pipeline and refinery in a remote and beautiful part of the west of ireland. this experimental pipeline will endanger local people's health and safety aswell as destroying an area of outstanding natural beauty. shell plan to pump raw gas inland through a pipeline which would be only 70m away from some people's homes. they also propose to dump waste from the gas treatment process into a local bay which is a breeding ground for whales and dolphins. this summer 5 local men spent 94 days in prison for preventing shell acess to their land. the rossport solidarity camp was set up on the route of the proposed pipeline at the request of local people. shell are about to start attempting work again and we are setting up a new camp on the beach at the site where the proposed pipeline would meet land.
