Bus from Dublin to Shannon demo

category dublin | anti-war / imperialism | event notice author Tuesday October 17, 2006 10:43author by Dublin AWIauthor email info at antiwarireland dot org Report this post to the editors

Book now!

A bus to the Shannon anti-war demo (and back!) will leave Liberty Hall at 9am on the 28th. We're getting quite a bit of interest so we'd encourage people to book their seats now! That'll give us a chance to judge whether a second bus should be ordered.

Return fare is 15 euros (waged) or 10 euros (student/unwaged/low waged).

To book a seat, phone Anthony at 087 068 78 99.

I can remember in February 2003, more than 100,000 people marched through the centre of Dublin.
Now just a bus load.
The anti-war movement has suffered virtually 100% loss in support.
I'm staying at home because nobody cares or gives a shit about Iraq.

How many issues have ever got 100,000 people on the streets and how often? Is that your benchmark? No 100,000, no interest? So, there must be almost no issue you're willing to bestir yourself for. Other than Catholic Emancipation and Papal visits (though I doubt they'd get the same numbers on a return visit).

This is the first large protest at shannon this year and it's important that good numbers turn up. The bus (or two) from Dublin will be joined by buses from Cork & Galway and by many people travelling by motor car, bike, and donkey & cart.

See yis at shannon :-)

You activists have learned nothing, even when it's sooo obvious!
Buses use fossil fuels. To get cheap fossil fuels, we have to send our brave sevicemen and women out to secure it for us, in Iraqland, and Iranland.... So why DRIVE to Shannon to protest our oil getting missions?
And anyway, when you get there and walk up to the barriers, there will be a big load of cops (also transported using fossil fuels, but THEY show their support for the fossil fuel cycle, - God Bless them all) and even a few on horses to make sure you don't go where you want to go.
So, you'll burn fossil fuels, get penned in by cops on horses, to protest our legitimate right to burn petrol! Damn you wooly pinko liberals. This is why the left doesn't get elected, they don't have the spine to back up the rhetoric!

No, people, the answer is this...

Establish an ACTIVIST MOUNTED UNIT. and here's why...

-A couple of cops on horses does more crowd control than 20 on their feet.
-A couple of activists on horses on the other hand....
are less likely to be punched in the face by cops,
are more likely to be able to provide observer film footage, directions, or locate missing children in the crowd :)
-Two horses can be towed in a trailer behind a bio-fuel powered jeep or car!

Dudes, can you not see the synergy? It's crying out to be done.
Take your horse to the protest. There's no law against it AND... for all you wussy civil liberyy weeping mary's...
No, you don't have to produce a driving licence at the checkpoint if you're ON A HORSE!
So, you get a good view, can take better pics from the horse, and the extra bonuses for you tree hugging hippy types..
After a quick visit to the local chipper to refill your belly, and borrow some chip oil to fuel the car home, you can use the dung from your horse on your organic garden....

Doesn't your bus idea just seem so silly when you think about it?

See you there amigos!!!!

Peace!

The last poster is a typical tree-hugging nay-sayer intent on undermining the armed forces. Withdrawing Our Troops from Iraq will mean that Ireland will use fossil fuels drawn from the Corrib gas fields. I have been assured on excellent authority, by those with the most unimpeachable credentials, an above average intelligence and (I would have said until I read your post) a unique writing style, that Ireland will benefit from the largesse of Shell and the miracle of international free markets and the security of supply generated by blowing up Willie Corduff's house to such an extent that Our Troops would be better deployed guarding our Security Of Supply in Mayo.

Dear Folks, Who have posted comments thus far.

If you're too exhausted, resigned or merely confuse being cymical with being sophisticated - take a break don't come! Remain in the virtual world of the internet, sounds like that's as much of the elements you can cope with presently. We'll be fine without you!

Shannon Airport saw the most significantt disruption of U.S troop deployment to the Iraq War thanx to noniolent direct action. A Dublin jury recently afiirmed the illegailty of the war and the legitimacy of nonviolent resistance to it www.peaceontrial.com The U.S. are now losing that war militarily. They are losing on the Afghanistan front and are about to open another front in Iran, It looks like the North Koreans may see this as the most opportune to fight them on a fourth front. So yes the war is escalating and expanding and it's time to return to Shannon for those of us who oppose this madness!

The most dramatic resistance to the war is now coming from within the U.S. military and we will be joined by three members of Iraq Veterans Against the War at Shannon on Sat Oct 28th. 2pm

No protests against the genocide in Darfur either. Why is the anti war movement an excercise in western self loathing only?

The procession from Shannon town centre will take the form of a mock-funeral in memory of the dead of Iraq, Afghanistan and the United States. Following the rally, we intend to lay flowers across the entrance to the airport as a mark of respect for those who have suffered as a result of the war machine that trundles through Shannon on a daily basis.

So, please, bring flowers with you to Shannon and let's bury the road in flora. Consider wearing black and encourage everybody you know to turn up. Home-made placards and banners particularly welcome.

author by Auntie Antipublication date Tue Oct 17, 2006 15:16author address author phone Report this post to the editors

No.. It's not self loathing. It's actually taking responsibility for your own country and leaders.

Here's what your snotty soundbyte misses.

Western Wars are not excused by comparing them to Pol Pot or Stalin.
People with Limited time, have to choose what they can work on. If I was living in the Asian sphere of influence, I'd be doing more on the Korea's, China, Japan's creeping militarims, and Indonesia... but we live very much inside the Western sphere, economically and politically linked to London and US business interests.
There's no point worrying about being criticised for not doing a piece of theatre about North Korea. It's a closed dictatorship, they don't have an embassy here, or business links, and nothing to bargain with Ireland, so those efforts would have zero chance of being noticed. It wouldn't even have the effect of showing solidarity to the people of N. Korea, because they don't get to see TV from the outside world...
But, actions against Irish involvement in US wars has had some effects, and has pi$$ed off the white house enough for them to have Haas make condemnations, and the govt have to run for cover. Weak as democracy is (flawed and relatively new when you consider how long we've had universal franchise) the power of the public is able to cause change, and people who use it, are part of a proud history of dissenters against unrestrained power. It would be apathy to do nothing about our own country, and hypocrisy to point out other countries flaws, while not railing against our own goverments bloody hands. So, what are you saying, you prefer apathy and hypocrisy?
It's actually a compliment to our commitment to freedom, that we are concentrating our efforts where we believe it can be most effective, and were it can ensure that these same rights are kept renewed... a tribute to those who fought so long to get them for us.
Shame on you for forgetting their sacrifice! Tsk, Tsk, must try harder... : )

A personal anecdote.
I met your kind before...

At an Anti-Iraq war demo, some guy comes up sneering.

"How come I don't see you organising protests against the Chinese Government"

and, boy how I loved delivering my reply...

"Well, you didn't see me protesting against the Chinese president's visit to Ireland last month, but do you know why?"

"No. Why?"

"Because I WAS there and YOU weren't. Hypocrite"

[sound of rapid descent from Moral High Ground---- THUD ]

Digger, if your so outraged, you organise a protest. If you say you havent' seen one, perhaps it;'s because you don't go there yourself. In which case, you may qualify for the subs bench on the hurlers on the ditch all stars team! Keep it up, you might make the starting line up! : )

Ain't got no time for 'whatabouters'... except when they amuse me by becoming targets for remarks like that.

Anyone who tries to make a difference in this country is subject to a blatancy of negative trolling,
its a hobby for the bewildered.

Solidarity.

don't take on the trolls , unless you feel you can elicit intelligent discussion from
them-which I may add is highly unlikely....

There are two issues from this observation:

1. That these people are involved in a vicious campaign which is organised to undermine
the work of some organisations.
2. They really are afraid to look honestly at the problems caused by our involvment
in war-which suggests that they are in denial of the kind of society we are creating for our
children.

The relentlessness of the attacks on specific campaigns suggests that the troll
is a creature of fear and loathing, who recognises their overt complicity in mass
consumption practices and corrupt government-this means they can be changed
through persistent campaign and knowlege dissemination.

However...maybe they are just sick people and best left alone.

People unfamiliar with this particular troll should note his infallible logic making another appearance.

1. An A-10 is an aircraft that shoots nuclear waste

2. Shannon Airport itself was caught dumping rubbish on Delgnish Island, which is against its own bye laws and encourages birds to congregate... even though it's next to a runway...

3. Shannon has been pumping untreated sewage into the estuary, which is a Special Area of Conservation.

Fair play to you fine folks who are willing to go to Shannon and force the US military out of Shannon. Naturally I like any other morally driven Irish person, want Shannon to return to its proper role of a national airport and not that of a military base.

However my practical nature forces me to ask why are we placing so much focus on Shannon. Surely if the true aim of the resistance is to end the war then dealing with Shannon is like pissing in the wind. Even if you force an end to use of Shannon as a military base, the troops will just be moved through another country. The net result will be that the same troops get to Iraq to commit the same attrocites. Where is the victory in that or is that just a pyhric (forgive the spelling) victory.

Should the focus not be on the real culprits in this war i.e. Britain, America and Australia (maybe you could explain this Ciaron). Surely with so few troops in the Anti-war movement it would be wiser to focus them on fewer targets.

Also Ciaron I would really like to know how you can be so harsh on the Irish Governement while you can somehow be so comfortable in Howards Australia. As I have said before:

Australia is actively participating in this war killing innocent Iraqis
Australia provides the facilities that aim the bombs on Iraq
Australia has the largest green house gas emmissions per capita in the world
Australia has recently overthrown the democratically elected Government of East Timor

I have no problem with the fact that you want to help make Ireland a better place but who the hell do you think you are to belittle Ireland when you come from a country which is stil a nation of convicts run by convicts.

Seems to me that you are just another egotist who doesnt want to shit in his own backyard.

Obviously, though, the nasty subtext of your message, is that Ciaron should stay out of Ireland (his father's homeland) and stay in Australia. Yawn. This is the 21st century - people move around.

Yes, Deckie,

the do- nothing approach is very worthwhile.
Tell everyone that there's no point, cos someone else will do it.
However, if we were talking about appeasing Al Qaeda, then suddently we would have the domino effect argument.
Because we're appeasing the US military, it's fine.
One less country for them to refuel, makes it harder for them, and easier for another country to ignore the sad 'somebody else would' argument you put forward.

Well, if WE don't sell nuclear technology to the North Koreans, then it's a cinch that somebody else will ... ABB Inc. (which sold nuclear tech to N.Korea while D. Rumsfeld was on it's board)

Well, if WE don't sell chemical weapons to Saddam, then it's a cinch that somebody else will - various companies, politicians in US, Germany and UK among others - back when Saddam was 'OUR Bastard'.

Well, if WE don't bomb their country back to the stone age, destabilising their food chain, inflicting hurt and misery, which diminishes the reputation of our own country, and sowing the seeds for fanatical violence and extremism that will someday come back to haunt us, THEN SOMEBODY ELSE WILL. - various people, at various times through history.

Deago,

Australia and Ireland share the same special relationship with the U.S. It's called "faking orgasm while being raped!"

In terms of gut churning sycophantic ritual, the Irish imperial tithe of a bowl of Shamrocks at the White House every St. Patrick's Day take some beating. But the Australian celebration of the mass slaughter in the invasion of Turkey in WW1 is in hot pursuit.

Deago, you've really got that colonised Irish confusion between being contrary and rebelious real bad. You have a cultivated ignorance that took a lot of hard work in achieving. Deago, there is an enormous Irish diaspora...three of em returned to Ireland to join two locals in carrying out the disarmament action at Shannon 3/2/06 Probably the most significant civilian disruption to the U.S. deployment to Iraq the western peace movement came up with. Earlier posted concerns on this thread about numbers of buses are irrlevant. Look what 5 people did on Feb 3 03 - compare and contrast it with 100,000 on Feb 15 03. Numbers are irrelvant in terms of significance.

Take a chill pill on the convict thang dude....it's starting to sound like projected self hatred. The Irish convicts had less culpability than the "free settlers" in the genocidal history of Australia.

Like you, I want the US and all other military to stop using Shannon airport for war purposes. (I have no problem with Shannon being used to help ship the troops home.)

You say then that, however, your practical nature forces you to ask why "we" are placing so much focus on Shannon. I took it that by saying "we" you included yourself and were just asking a rhetorical question which would be answered immediately to convince the unconvinced.

Sadly disappointed, I gulp at the despair (and did I detect some throwing of cold water?) evident in your very next sentence: "Surely if the true aim of the resistance is to end the war then dealing with Shannon is like pissing in the wind". Even more disappointed to read the old canard that if Shannon isn't used, another country's airport will be, and the end result will be the same.

This last sentiment would be akin to saying (as the Irish Government did) that if we didn't sell beef to Saddam Hussein, some other country would. Shake off the moral dilemma on economic grounds as always.

I am even more disappointed to find that what I had hoped would be a reasoned argument descended rapidly into a diatribe against Ciaron O'Reilly. If you had been following recent posts on the Internet you would have known that Ciaron has been actively protesting against Australia's part in the war and other atrocities.
He has worked on behalf of the Aborigines and shown his solidarity with them.

It was your last comments, however, that riled me and force this reply. You say (to your shame, in my opinion):

"I have no problem with the fact that you want to help make Ireland a better place but who the hell do you think you are to belittle Ireland when you come from a country which is stil a nation of convicts run by convicts.
Seems to me that you are just another egotist who doesnt want to shit in his own backyard."

Convicts? Like the ones from the Fields of Athenry? Are you a racist? Or just venting nasty, ugly, hate-filled spleen that does you little credit?

In spite of all that, if you want to picket the US or British or Australian Embassies, just let me know and I'll gladly join you.
