Shannon Anti War Demonstration

A demonstration against the presence of the US military at Shannon airport will be held on Saturday, 28 October. This will be a protest and rally against the misuse of an Irish civilian airport and in solidarity with those who have suffered at the hands of the US war machine.

Several US Iraq War vets are expected to travel from the United States to participate in the demonstration, which will be the first at the airport this year. Among those expected to come to Shannon to register their objection to the presence of the US war machine will be Joshua Castell, a former US army interrogator at Abu Ghraib.

We want this to be a colourful and imaginative protest, so please bring homemade banners, placards and other symbols of your opposition to the so-called US 'war on terror'.

It is important that people travel for this protest and make their voices heard. Please attend and bring your kids, friends, grandmother and/or dog!
When: 2pm, Saturday, 28 October

Where: Assemble at Lidl's in Shannon town centre.

Organised by Anti-War Ireland

About "The Last of the Zapatistas" :

Forgotten Heroes is the chilling testimony of the soldiers who fought beside their General Emiliano Zapata in the 1910 Mexican Revolution. Almost one hundred years later, these survivors of the legendary Liberation Army of the South reveal a truth not to be found in any book. They speak of the failure of the Revolution and of today’s neoliberal governments, of the agrarian and ecological disaster threatening their country and of imminent civil war if the Zapatista ideals they represent continue to be ignored.

These men and women are chapters of unjust history, abandoned wisdom, banners for Mexico’s underprivileged .... they are the Forgotten Heroes.

(This documentary includes the historic encounter between members of the Zapatista National Liberation Army and the Zapatista veterans).

“That these forgotten heroes allowed me to share their knowledge was no easy task to achieve. Ninety years of lies and mockery on the part of the government had left the veterans wary and suspicious. Only after months of living with them were we able to establish a true friendship, and it was then that the documentary began”.
Francesco Taboada Tabone to “Il Venerdi di Repubblica”, Italy
