Meetings – resisting new trespass laws, & Shell in Ireland

Monday April 11, 7pm – Meeting about the proposed anti-squatter/traveler trespass law the Tories are proposing. It’s not a law yet – they’re researching it in committee for the next 3 months. The time is now to organise against it. Please spread widely.

Tuesday April 12, from 8pm alongside People’s Kitchen – Resisting Shell. The struggle against Shell’s controversial Corrib gas project in Ireland continues, and is currently escalating in response to Shell beginning work on the proposed pipeline. A screening of The Pipe followed by a Q & A & info session on Shell’s project & the Rossport solidarity camp.

“What do people do, when the law prevents them from protecting themselves? Documentary film on the small Irish village that stood up to Big Oil.

A compelling documentary film four years in the making, The Pipe tells the story of the small Rossport community which has taken on the might of Shell Oil and the Irish State. The discovery of gas off this remote coastal village has led to the most dramatic clash of cultures in modern Ireland. The rights of farmers over their fields, and of fishermen to their fishing grounds, has come in direct conflict with one of the world’s most powerful oil companies.”
