Rings Around Tara. To whom it may concern: A protest camp has been established at the Hill of Tara, County Meath, Ireland, to oppose the monstrous M3 Motorway project due to begin this year. The Irish State is attempting to have the protestors removed from the Hill without any legal right to do so. What is required is not merely international attention, but an international presence at the Hill itself. We are calling for volunteers to help establish an International Tara Solidarity Camp, to maintain a permanent presence on the Hill of Tara, and to monitor the situation on an ongoing basis. Examples of the damage being done to the area around the Hill of Tara as top soil is stripped to prepare for the motorway: http://www.sacredireland.org/gallery.html Some details on the camp itself: http://www.indymedia.ie/article/77281 http://www.indymedia.ie/article/77255 http://www.indymedia.ie/article/77224 Further Details on the M3 Motorway Project itself: www.tara-foundation.org http://nuigalway.ie/archaeology/Tara_M3.html http://www.hilloftara.info/ http://www.tarawatch.org/ http://www.taraskryne.org/ http://www.protect-tara.org/
