Send Shell Home!

For several years, oil giant Shell have been trying to build the worlds first inland oil refinery along with a 92km offshore gas pipeline in County Mayo Ireland. The proposed site is a designated EU special area of conservation- it's a beautiful part of the world and hosts a diverse marine habitat, none of which of course factor into Shell's profit forecasts.

The local community and campaigners have resisted the project for over 8 years by direct action including inititives like the blocking of a tanker and demonstrations. A Shell tanker is due back in Mayo in April/May this year so campaigners are asking for continued support. For more info or to get involved visit:
