Wreath Laying Ceremony at Shannon Airport.

4pm at the entrance of Shannon Airport 19th March 2007 Monday

Tuesday 20th of March of next week marks the fourth anniversary of the American led invasion of Iraq. To mark this dark occasion Cosantori Siochana are holding a commemoration at the site of the old customs post on the entrance at Shannon Airport. This event will happen at 4pm Bank Holiday Monday 19th of March.

This anniversary is also the date the Irish government officially joined the “Coalition of the Willing”. Day X marked the Ahern regime dismissed Ireland’s traditional neutrality to support the Gorge W. Bush’s war of terror on the people of Iraq and Afghanistan. This was dark day in Ireland’s history which has added to the ever growing chasm between the cultures of the world.

This shameful act by many of our politicians has been used to excuse many despicable deeds including Extraordinary Rendition. Where once the nation of Ireland was held in high esteem Rosin Dubh is now chastised for being complicit in these heinous activities by America’s dark forces. While always willing to accept dubious “assurances” Bertie Ahern has provided the US Military with a blank cheque. This is just anther chapter of Ahern’s shameful legacy to Irish and world politics.

A wreath will be placed near the entrance of Shannon Airport by Deirdre Clancy. Last August Deirdre Clancy found not guilty of criminal damage at Shannon Airport. As part of the group known as the Pit-Stop Ploughshares Deirdre was vindicated after causing over €1.5 million in to a US Navy Warplane. The group decommissioned this Boeing 737 with a hammers and a mattock.

Human rights and anti-war campaigner, Senator David Norris, has been invited to present a bowl of shamrock to a representative of the Iraqi community in Ireland. This shamrock as a symbol of our nation will mark our long standing relationship with the people of this region. During the “Great famine”, when many died or emigrated, the people of Mesopotamia sent ship loads of food to ease Ireland’s suffering.

People are asked to bring flowers.
