ATTACK ON MOSQUE IN CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 15 MARCH 2019

ATTACK ON MOSQUE IN CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND

The IAWM strongly condemns the attack against civilians in a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand which has left 49 dead so far and many more wounded. Our thoughts and sympathy go out to the victims and their loved ones at this awful time.

These mass killings have clear echoes of the attack in Norway by Anders Breivik in 2011. They were inspired by a racist, xenophobic ideology which is aided by the policies and utterances of Trump in the US and many EU Governments and groups who have castigated refugees and migrants many of whom are from the Muslim community because of the wars being waged in the Middle East.

Jim Roche PRO of the IAWM said:
“We can only end these terrorist attacks by ceasing to fuel the racist, xenophobic ideology that inspires them, by helping all refugees and by building a peaceful world instead of one of perpetual warfare.”

IAWM SAYS LOOK BACK IN ANGER - REMEMBER ALL THE DEAD OF WW1

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 09 NOVEMBER 2018

LOOK BACK IN ANGER THIS SUNDAY AND REMEMBER ALL THE DEAD OF WORLD WAR 1

Supported by:
Sinead Cusack Actor, Felim Egan Artist, Frank Mc Donald Journalist & Writer, Raymond Deane Composer, Stuart Dunne Actor & Artist, Sean Harrington Architect, Rev. Patrick Comerford President CND, Patricia Mc Kenna former MEP, Richard Boyd Barrett TD, Clare Daly TD, Aengus O Snodaigh TD, Brid Smith TD, Joan Collins TD, Eamonn McCann former MLA for PBP, Councillor Tina Mc Veigh, former Councillor Enda Fanning, Goretti Horgan Ulster University, Marcin Wojcik Lecturer DIT, Ms. Deirdre Judge and more.

The Irish Anti-War Movement will hold a dignified vigil at the entrance to the Irish National War Memorial in Island Bridge, Dublin on this Sunday morning 11 November from 10am to 11am.

This is to coincide with the World War 1 Armistice People’s Remembrance organised by the Royal British Legion that is taking place in the Memorial Garden from 10.45am.

Our vigil will remember all the dead of WW1 – Irish, British, German, Turkish, soldiers from the colonies etc. and the millions of civilians that died – and we will ask one simple question - What did they die for? This is the title of our pamphlet published four years ago at the centenary of the beginning of the war along with a statement signed by many prominent Irish people. We encourage people who attend to wear white poppies as a symbol of peace.

WW1 was the opposite of a "war to end all wars" and a "victory for democracy". It was instead a military disaster and a catastrophe for humankind which left 16 million dead, 20 million horribly wounded and millions of civilian refugees. Those who survived were deeply scarred with many suffering debilitating long-term effects.
