Shell to Sea gear up for the Long Walk from Rossport to Dublin

With less than a week to go Shell to Sea is getting ready for the long walk.

Preparations are well underway in Erris for Saturday’s kick off of the long walk from Shell’s compound in Rossport to Dublin City. Campaigners have been tramping the roads in training, stocking up on blister plasters and the Shell to Sea HQ trailer has been bedecked in photos and filled with flyers ready for long march east. Campaigners from Erris Shell to Sea, Rossport Solidarity Camp, Cork, Dublin and Galway Shell to Sea and other supporters of the campaign will participate in the long walk to the capital. The aim of the walk is to give the public at large an opportunity to find out what the Shell to Sea campaign is about free of media spin and directly from those involved and to enable people to ask their own questions about the campaign and to share their own experiences. The walkers will be accompanied by the famous Shell to Sea HQ trailer where information and a friendly chat and cup of tea will be available to all. A series of public meetings will also be held in the towns along the route.
