NO MORE BOMBING OF SYRIA - CEASEFIRE NOW!
END ARMS SALES NOW - STOP PROFITEERING FROM WARS
RESTORE IRISH NEUTRALITY - US MILITARY OUT OF SHANNON
NO MORE WESTERN WARS IN MIDDLE EAST
The Irish Anti-War movement, in solidarity with other anti-war events in the UK, France and elsewhere, is assembling outside the Dail at 5pm on Thursday December 10th to demand of this government that it upholds Irish neutrality, refuses to facilitate, or participate in, the bombing of Syria, calls for an immediate ceasefire and withdraws permission to use Shannon by the US military.
To prepare for this and future anti-war activities, there will be a meeting on Thursday December 3rd, at 6.30pm in the Teachers Club, 37 Parnell Square, Dublin. All welcome.
Ireland should play no part in the current war frenzy. The claim that bombing will destroy Daesh (Islamic State) is patently false. Bombs are one of the main reasons why we are facing terrorism in the first place. Bombs predominantly kill innocent people and thus help to draw people towards Daesh both in the region and in the suburbs of European cities, where discrimination, racism and disaffection further fuels hatred of Western governments. The political vacuum left from the bombing of Iraq, which killed up to a million people, has been filled by the horror of Daesh. To repeat the same mistake now simply makes no sense.
