BACKGROUND - In Rossport, County Mayo, residents & supporters continue to obstruct the building of a dangerous gas pipeline.

Yesterday they were expected to be back at the High Court, potentially facing more time in jail.
A Tree Protest Camp has been established at Shepton Mallet in Somerset. Its aim is to protect 300 to 400 mature decsidious trees from being felled to make way for a new TESCO store. There is strong local support for the camp. People are needed to help out at the camp. A war memorial is also set to be relocated for the store.
The next meeting for local people interested in getting involved with this summer's climate camp will take place this Wednesday (15th Feb) at 7.30 in OARC (upstairs @ East Oxford Community Centre).
