Black Hearts for Valentine’s Day at Shannon Airport
clare | anti-war / imperialism | news report Sunday February 14, 2010 21:25 by John Lannon - Shannonwatch shannonwatch at gmail dot com
Valentine’s Day was marked at Shannon Airport by a vigil calling for Love not War. Around 25 people gathered in the sunshine outside the airport entrance, displaying black hearts and calling for an end to the U.S. military use of Shannon. Demonstrators ended the hour long vigil by giving their black heart ‘Valentine Cards’ to the Gardai who stood behind the metal barriers which they had erected to block access to the airport.
Close to 2 million U.S. troops have passed through Shannon Airport since the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. In 2009 alone over 970 U.S. military contracted aircraft transported troops and cargo through the airport. Flight records maintained by Shannonwatch also show that an additional 360 U.S. Air Force and Navy aircraft landed at Shannon in the same period. According to Shannonwatch, these figures show the strategic role that Shannon plays in the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, done largely without the knowledge or approval of the Irish people.
