Irish Government get off the fence,

Irish Government - close the Shannon Warport!

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 09 JANUARY 2020

• IRANIAN AND AMERICAN SPEAKERS TO CONDEMN TRUMP’S RECKLESS ACTIONS AT DÁIL PROTEST
• NO TO WAR WITH IRAN!
• STOP THIS SENSELESS WARMONGERING!
• US TROOPS OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST!
• US MILITARY OUT OF SHANNON!

The Irish Anti-War Movement will hold a protest at Dáil Éireann this evening at 5.30pm to condemn the assassination of Iranian General Qaseem Suleimani, Iraqi Commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and others by a US air strike at Baghdad airport on 03 January.

Iranian, American and Irish speakers will join the protest and condemn the escalation towards another war in the region.

Speakers so far include:

• Dr. Roja Fazaeli, Iranian / Irish citizen and academic
• Dr. Harry Brown, journalist, academic and US citizen
• Glenda Cimino, US citizen and member of the IAWM Steering Committee
• Richard Boyd Barrett TD and President of the IAWM

The IAWM regards this act as a blatant, provocative act of war by the US Government against Iran. To assassinate the second most important leader of a soverign country is unprecedented and while it is the latest in a series of tit-for-tat strikes in the cold war between the US and Iran this reckless act seriously increases the danger of a new war in the middle east. We have already witnessed strong calls for revenge from Iran and we have seen retaliatory missile strikes by Iran against US military bases in Iraq.

NO TO WAR IN IRAN! CLIMATE JUSTICE NOW!

Happy New Year and Decade to all our followers. Sadly it got off to a bad start with the twin events of the reckless actions of Donald Trump in Baghdad and the apocalyptic climate changing fires raging in Australia. The struggle against war and for peace must be twinned with the struggle for climate justice. Let us continue that joint struggle in 2020.

STOP THIS SENSELESS WARMONGERING! NO TO WAR WITH IRAN!

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 03 JANUARY 2020

• NO TO WAR WITH IRAN!
• STOP THIS SENSELESS WARMONGERING!

The Irish Anti-War Movement condemns the reckless targeted assassination of the leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards’ Quds force, General Qaseem Suleimani, along with six others by a US air strike at Baghdad airport last night.

This is quite simply a blatant, provocative act of war by the US Government against Iran.

This assassination is the latest in a series of tit-for-tat strikes in the cold war between the US and Iran but this reckless act seriously increases the danger of a new war in the middle east. It will do nothing except escalate tensions across the region and will likely lead to even more violence being inflicted on ordinary citizens who have suffered terribly over the last 20 years from US sanctions, invasion and occupation. It will also allow Iranian leaders free reign to suppress any internal struggles for social justice and democracy.

The omens are not good as already the US Government has instructed all its citizens to leave Iraq immediately and in recent weeks has deployed thousands more troops to the region.

Whatever about Suleimani’s role in fomenting regional violence his leading role in helping defeat ISIS makes him a national hero in Iran which is a highly militarised country with 500,000 armed troops. Iran’s leaders will not take his targeted assassination lightly.

Glenda Cimino, US citizen and a member of the IAWM Steering Committee, said:
“We can no longer afford to make enemies of other people and nations. Our collective enemy is climate deterioration, loss of habitat and species on earth. Trump’s reckless and illegal use of assassinations and cruel sanctions on the Iranian people will not lead to ‘victory’. He is really dangerous for world peace and the sooner he is removed from office, the better.”

Jim Roche, PRO of the IAWM noted that:
