Images from the 2012 Rossport Solidarity Gathering

 Over the June bank hoiliday I attended the Rossport Solidarity Camp gathering, part of the ongoing struggle against Shell's experimental gas pipeline and refined that is being imposed on the area.  While there I revisited the Shell compound at Arghoose which has been massively developed since last year.  The photoslide show here gives an idea of the camp, the landscape and the level of monitoring of everyone in the area being carried out by the Garda and Shell's security company IRMS.

It's taken me a while to get these images onto flickr but right after the weekend I prepared a album for the WSM Facebook page which includes more pictures and a commentary on what is in many of the images.  I used one of the scenic pictures I took in a quiet moment for my 500px account.
