Shannon has also played a significant part in the occupation of Afghanistan over the last decade. There the results are equally appalling.
Not content with supporting the Afghan and Iraq wars, the Irish political elite have now given a clear signal that they will actively support the US/EU/Israeli war on Iran. By closing the Irish embassy there, they shut the door on dialogue. Shannon is continuing to operate as a US military hub, and if Iran is invaded it will almost certainly play a part.
This war must be stopped because if it goes ahead the consequences will be even worse than those in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The demonstration at Shannon on March 11th will remember all those who have died in the wars that Shannon Airport has been part of. It will also call yet again on the Irish government to end the US military use of the airport.
