Shannon protest at ongoing US military use of airport

Peace activists from around the country will gather at Shannon on Sunday 13th November at 2pm to protest against the continuing US military use of the airport. The event takes place two days after Armistice Day which is intended to mark the end of fighting in World War I and to honour the war dead. It will draw attention to how little peace there is in the world today and how Ireland’s increasing support for militarization is escalating global instability . Armed US troops pass through Shannon on a daily basis, despite the fact that the country claims to be neutral. Shannonwatch call on the Irish people to restore Ireland’s active neutrality by prohibiting the use of Shannon and other rish airports and seaports by US, NATO and other foreign military forces.  See http://www.shannonwatch.org/ for more details.
