Rossport Solidarity Meeting 2nd Nov and Pics from demo 26th Oct

Around 20 people took part in a lunchtime demonstration outside Manchester Business School in solidarity with the people of Rossport, Co Mayo, Ireland. In Ireland, like in Nigeria , South Africa and other places, Shell Oil is using the powers of the state to ride rough shod over the local people's resistance to their destruction of local communities and environments.

Meanwhile, Shell Oil sponsors studies in Manchester Bsuiness School and in Environemtnal Stuidies at the University.

A group of 20 students and local activists picketed the MBS, distributed leaflets and held a banner drop on October 26th.

On Novemeber 2nd, two activists from the Rossport Solidarity Camp will be speaking at the Basement, 24 Lever st, Manchester M1 1HW (off Piccadilly Gardens), starting at 7.30pm. This will keep us informed of the state of the struggle and allow p-lans for more actions in Manchester.
