Rossport Solidarity meeting in Glasgow 3rd Feb

Four members of the Rossport Solidarity camp will be speaking in Glasgow on Friday 3rd February at the Saorsa Social Centre.

Rossport Solidarity Camp was born in June 2005. It is the first protest camp around an ecological theme to take place in Ireland for several years. The camp began after local opponents of Shell's plan to build an unprecedented high pressure gas pipeline through the hamlet of Rossport invited us there to back up their struggle. A large marquee was erected with a kitchen for cooking and eating, sleeping and meeting, notice boards and info point. Compost toilets and compost heaps were built to deal with organic waste and the rest was recycled. A tipi and a large bender provided more space when needed, as well as smaller tents too. Water in barrels was carried in daily from Vincent Mc Grath's house and locals offered showers and laundry. A wind turbine system was set up to harness wind energy giving electricity to power lights, mobile phones and computers.
