Party Against The Pipe

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Ayo, will be playing at the Party Against the Pipe the weekend of 4-6 June. For those who aren’t aware of the Corrib Gas Pipeline, a quick synopsis is as follows: When gas was found off the County Mayo coast, the rights to its exploitation were sold off by the then ruling party, Fianna Fáil, in order to generate some much needed cash. Shell now controls the €500 billion of gas out there, and is building an ‘experimental’ piping system, that results in pumping raw, unodourised gas past local people’s homes, to a processing plant further inland. Why can’t they process the gas at the well head out at sea and not put people at risk? Makin a buck innit.

Please check out the Shell to Sea campaign for more info on the ten years of protest over the Corrib Gas Pipeline.

A-Force, Antrophe, myself, and heaps of other will be DJing over the weekend. Haven’t been down before, but from what I’ve been told it’s a great weekend, and despite the context, a lot of fun is to be had!
