Join us, London Rising Tide, for an evening of film and discussion about
climate activism and the oil industry.
SCREENING OF MULTI-AWARD WINNING SHELL RESISTANCE FILM "The Pipe"
What: Shining a spotlight on the ongoing battle between Shell Oil and the
Irish coastal town of Rossport. This is a truely inspirational
tale, telling the story of the Rossport community and their struggle
against Shell's devastating pipeline construction. Despite the seriousness
of the events surrounding them, their resilience and humanity never wanes,
and their wit and humour has an uncanny ability to counter the
despair. Accolades include; Winner Best Documentary film 2011 - Irish Film
& Television awards, Winner Best Documentary 2011 - Celtic Media Festival,
Winner Best Documentary 2011 - Arizona International Film Festival,
and official selection for the BFI London Film Festival 2010.
We will also be screening two short films of recent actions against BP and
Shell by Rising Tide and friends. Afterwards there will be discussions on
direct action against the oil industry in London and plenty of
opportunities to get involved.
There will also be hot tea, delicious cakes and a bar (if you fancy
Who: Anyone who believes in climate justice and wants to help make it
happen, anyone pissed off with the greed and irresponsibility of oil
giants like Shell and BP, anyone interested in environmental direct action
and looking to get involved locally. We'd love to see lots of friendly
faces both old and new, everyone is welcome!
