Mission Statement/ Ethos

The aim of the camp is to lend practical support to the local community’s struggle against the state and Shell and to provide a base for people who wish to visit the area, to find out more and show their solidarity with the people of Erris.

This is a major opportunity to defeat a highly dangerous project and the campaign thus far has already been an inspiration to many people. This struggle against the state and big business is having a significant radicalising effect on both the Erris community and ordinary people all over Ireland.

What is happening in north west Mayo is one front in the struggle against the subordination of our lives in the interests of global capitalism: a victory here will be a step to victory everywhere.
