1. Call out when Shell start work & Days of Action
Shell have announced that they plan to start work any day now, we will do a call out for protests as soon as they do. There will be a big Day of Action approx 2 weeks after work starts (it will be on a Friday- exact date to be announced in the call out). We are asking people to spread the word and think about organizing people & transport to come up here for the Day of Action. We aim to frustrate, disrupt and stop Shell as much as possible with continious daily protests. There will then be a Day of Action once a month from then on.

2. Update on Shell's plans
Shell are currently dismantling the Aughoose compound opposite the camp, finishing "the survey". At the same time they announced begining of the construction commencing now. The first stage of the construction will be to set up new compound in Aughoose, secure it with palisade fencing and remove tons of the peat in order to prepare the compound for tunnel boring machine. Our best chance to stop the rest of construction happening is to stop the compound from being set up is. The new Aughoose compound is planned to be much bigger and will cause a huge amount of damage to the land and disruption to residents due to the truck movements (472 truck movements a day at peak construction)

3. Get ready to stop Shell
We are running Direct Action trainings across the country and at the camp, please get in touch if you would like one in your area. The next one is Saturday 23rd July at the camp, please email us to book your place..
It's open to complete beginners to try out different ways of protesting, learning your legal rights and planning a safe and effective campaign against Shell. Accommodation and food provided, donations welcome.

4. Update on actions against Shell
As well as the big days written up in the reports below, there are also continious walks on to Shell's compound & blockades of Shell's tractors.
