Shell to Sea on TV

RTE's Leargas, Monday April 24 7:30pm RTE ONE, was about the Rossport 5 and their struggle against the Corrib Gas project.Also, Friday 28th April at 7:30pm, BBC2 Scotland's Eorpa also has a piece devoted to it. This is the blurb on their website:Local protestors delay gas development on the west coast of IrelandShellLarge scale energy projects often provoke strong feelings within communities. Shell E. & P. Ltd is presently involved in a multi-million pound scheme developing a gas field of the west coast of Ireland.In County Mayo a number of locals were imprisoned as a result of their opposition to an onshore pipeline Shell wishes to build as part of this project. The group have now been freed, but are still trying to prevent the work from going ahead.If anyone has access to a DVD or VHS recorder and could possibly record the Eorpa report and post it to us here at Rossport Solidarity House, Bunnahowen, Ballina, Co. Mayo that would be great.Tomorrow, Folk from the Latin American Solidarity Campaign are visitin the area and showing us a film about their struggle with a talk afterwards. Should make for a very informative evenin. We should have a proper report out on the list soon, just to update ye all on recent goings on. Till then, take care. Cheers Michael and all the folk at the Rossport Solidarity Camp :)
