1. Party Against the Pipe festival 4-6th June

Come & join us for the June Bank Holiday weekend. The ‘Party Against The Pipe’ will feature an eclectic mix of music, performance, art, children’s activities , celebrating a decade of resistance to the Corrib gas project. This event is open to all supporters of the Shell to Sea campaign. Party Against The Pipe is a family-friendly, not-for-profit event, with a suggested donation of just €20 and free camping. There are special buses organised from across the country, please book your seat now! Check out for all festival information.

2. Urgent call out for help setting up for the Party

The Rossport Solidarity Camp suffered badly in the storm force winds that hit us early Monday morning (gusts of 144kph were recorded in nearby Belmullet). The storm caused a fair amount of damage, with 2 marquees getting blown down. We really need help to prepare for the Party against the Pipe so if you have time to spare, do come up & lend a hand.

3. Actions against Shell & report from May day gathering

Yet again, another month of continuous successful actions against Shell, come up & get involved! We can give basic direct action training and a legal briefing so this is a perfect place to start if you are a complete beginner wanting to get involved...

There are also almost daily mass tresspasses on to the Shell compound.

4. Other events

Afri talk 'From Bhopal to Erris'

Speakers from the Choctaw Nation, Guatemala and India

The Shell to Sea national meeting took place in Dublin, the next one is planned for late summer.
