PROTEST THE JAILING OF MARGARETTA D’ARCY AT DÁIL EIREANN, WEDNESDAY 29 JANUARY 2014, 1.00 - 1.45PM

IAWM PRESS RELEASE – 29 JANUARY 2014

• PROTEST THE JAILING OF MARGARETTA D’ARCY AT DÁIL EIREANN, WEDNESDAY 29 JANUARY 2014, 1.00 - 1.45PM.

The IAWM issued a statement calling on its members and supporters to join the protest / vigil at Dáil Eireann today, 29 January from 1.00 - 1.45pm.

The statement noted:

The IAWM condemns the imprisonment of Margaretta D’Arcy, a 79-year-old writer and activist who is suffering from Parkinson’s disease and cancer, for her brave stance against the continued use of Shannon Airport by the US military in its pursuit of futile wars abroad, and calls on the Justice Minister Alan Shatter to release her.

Jim Roche, PRO of the IAWM said:

“We support Margaretta D’Arcy’s stance against wars waged by the US military and the brave action she took at Shannon airport in trying to draw attention to the use of an Irish national airport in the pursuit of such wars which have brought much suffering to millions of people abroad. Shannon Airport has also been used in the CIA rendition programme thus implicating Irish people in the torture of innocent people in Guantanamo Bay.

It is truly shocking that the Irish Government can jail a 79-year old woman who is suffering from Parkinson’s and cancer yet has persistently refused to search US war planes at Shannon, one of which recently was found to be heavily armed, and has failed miserably to jail anyone related to the activities in the banking sector that has brought the country such ruin.
