From Friday 29th May till Monday 1st June there will be will be a Rossport Camp Gathering combining info sharing, direct action training, music and fun.

Background info about the situation in Rossport in this short video...

Its all been kicking off again up there of late with local people against
the gas project getting beaten up in the middle of the night by masked
shell oil thugs and local people pulling down the fences of the refinery
site and occuping land so shell can't build on it...
