Various state agencies, including the 77th Brigade, spied on lockdown sceptics, according to Big Brother Watch. Incredibly, the Government convinced these agencies that critics of its polices are enemies of the state.

A group of women known as the Raging Grannies will hold a Day of Mourning at Shannon Airport on March 8th, International Women's Day, starting at 11am. In doing so they will draw attention to the fact that the airport has been complicit in deaths all across the Middle East, with US troops passing through practically every day of the week.

Up to one million children have died due to US-led wars in the Middle East since 1991. This includes over 500,000 Iraqi children who died due to US/UN sanctions in the 1990s. US Secretary of State Madeline Albright said their deaths 'were worth it'

In Yemen at least 85,000 children have died as a result of the US supported Saudi /UAE genocide war. US warplanes have been delivering US soldiers and weapons and munitions through Shannon airport in support of this war.

Three million armed US troops have passed through Shannon airport since 2001 in breach of international laws on neutrality.

Multiple war crimes have been perpetrated by some of these US troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria.

The US has been using Shannon airport also to support human rights abuses and war crimes in Palestine and Yemen.

Contact: Ann O Dea 089 4310965, Margaretta D'Arcy 091 565430

Call for Action:

Shame on Shannon - send email to remove US military from Shannon Airport, and to restore Irish neutrality.

At Shannon today, International Women's Day, a group of activists for Clare and Galway carried out a protest against US military use, or abuse, of Shannon Airport. It was led by the indomitable peace activist Margaretta D'Arcy.

One group of women assembled at the roundabout on the road into the airport while Margaretta led another group within the airport terminal building. Inside the terminal they lay on the floor wearing white death masks and commenced wailing in memory of the hundreds of thousands of innocent women and children who have died as a result of US led resource wars in the Middle East.

At the same time an Omni Air plane number N351AX was at the airport transporting up to 300 armed US troops from the USA to the Middle East wars. Another Omni Air plane N207AX was also at Shannon earlier this morning on its way from the Middle East war zones with a further 300 US troops to the USA.

Photos below of peace activist women protesting against US military abuse of Shannon Airport that has let to the deaths of over a million women and children in Middle East wars.
