The foreign military presence at Shannon Airport is an ongoing feature of Ireland's failure to take a stand against the failed policies of the US in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our neutrality has been abandoned and we have become complicit in endless cycles of suffering and death.
Furthermore the CIA use of the airport as a staging post for torture flights has not been acknowledged or addressed by the Irish government.
The monthly vigils at the airport continue, with the next one scheduled for 14:00 - 15:00 on Sunday November 13th. Please come along, and bring friends. Let the airport authorities and the government know that you care, and that you have had enough of the military occupation of Shannon.
