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
