It's hard to make sense of a policy that spends billions on lockdowns to 'save lives' while also assisting many of the same people to commit suicide.

A simplistic use of 'herd immunity' led to fanciful claims that COVID-19 would disappear once 60% of the population was vaccinated. But is there a dark side to aiming at 'herd immunity' through vaccines?

Cork anti-war public meeting: Abu-Ghraib interrogators to speak

category cork | anti-war / imperialism | event notice author Wednesday October 11, 2006 12:53author by Anti-War Irelandauthor email info at antiwarireland dot org Report this post to the editors

Two former Abu-Ghraib interrogators to call for the demilitarisation of Shannon Airport

In the wake of the Shannon demo (Saturday, 28th October), the Cork branch of Anti-War Ireland will host a public meeting which will be addressed by two former interrogators at the infamous Abu-Ghraib prison.

Stephen Lewis and Tony Lagouranis both served in Iraq together but rejected the war, along with their friend and fellow interrogator Joshua Casteel (who spoke in Cork during the summer).

Stephen Lewis served five years in the US army as an arabic speaking interrogator. He spent a year in Iraq, much of the time at Abu Ghraib. Joshua Casteel, Tony Lagouranis and Stephen served together. Their unit was the 202 military intelligence battalion. Near the end of the tour in Iraq, Joshua and Stephen confided in each other that they would both apply for conscientious objection as soon as they returned to the US. They did and both are now members of Iraq Veterans Against the War, as is Tony Lagouranis.

This should be a fascinating meeting. The fact that THREE members of the same intelligence unit have come out strongly against the war sends a powerful message that support in the US army for the Bush war effort should not be taken for granted.

When: 8pm, Tuesday, 31 October

Where: Quality Hotel, John Redmond Street, Cork

All welcome!!!

See yis in Shannon in the meantime!

Kathy and Bill Christison, both former senior CIA analysts and now harsh critics of the Bush regime, will join Stephen Lewis and Tony Lagouranis on the platform for this public meeting.

Should be a very interesting meeting and plenty of time will be allowed for discussion.
