In particular we will be highlighting the role of Irish EU Commissioner Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, who is responsible for administering “scientific grants” to Israeli arms manufacturing companies and other Israeli businesses and institutions (including settlement-based Ahava), effectively amounting to rewarding Israeli for its terrorisation of the Palestinians people.

For background to the EU and Israel, please see the relevant section of our website here.

This event is organised by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) as one of a series of events taking place around Ireland during international Israeli Apartheid Week 2012 (20 – 27 February).

Shannon Demonstration on March 11th to Mark Anniversary of Iraq Invasion
 
Shannonwatch (www.shannonwatch.org)
 
On Sunday March 11th at 2pm Shannonwatch and other peace/anti-war groups from around the country will gather at Shannon Airport to mark the 9th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Since Shannon was handed over to the American forces, over 2 million armed troops have passed through. Following 12 years of crippling sanctions, their presence in Iraq resulted in up to 1 million people dying and over 2 million refugees.

Shannon has also played a significant part in the occupation of Afghanistan over the last decade. There the results are equally appalling.

Not content with supporting the Afghan and Iraq wars, the Irish political elite have now given a clear signal that they will actively support the US/EU/Israeli war on Iran. By closing the Irish embassy there, they shut the door on dialogue. Shannon is continuing to operate as a US military hub, and if Iran is invaded it will almost certainly play a part.

This war must be stopped because if it goes ahead the consequences will be even worse than those in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The demonstration at Shannon on March 11th will remember all those who have died in the wars that Shannon Airport has been part of. It will also call yet again on the Irish government to end the US military use of the airport.
