Victims Relative To 'The Celtic Tiger'
To whom it may concern: The list of manufacturers here are just some of the business's in the south of Ireland that are connected with the machinery of imperialist wars. Can we get a discussion going leading to a widespread, coordinated and effective campaign, with the goal of ending the manufacturing of any military components or devices in Ireland for war?
It was done in the north, we can do it in the south. See The Raytheon 9 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raytheon_9 and related links.
