Over ONE MILLION people have died in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Ireland has participated in and been complicit in these wars.
These Iraqi and Afghan people are our brothers, sisters and our children, not, "some others" in a "them and us" war of resources.
Show your solidarity with the victims of a war that used Ireland as one of its principle launching pads.
Over ONE MILLION armed US troops and thousands of tons of munitions, passed through Shannon airport.
Over 1,000 CIA related flights were refuelled at Shannon airport, many of them associated with the US Torture rendition programme. read full story / add a comment

The recent attacks on Gaza by the Israeli state have brought strange bedfellows out of the Irish woodwork. Almost to a man, and woman, those who were vitriolic in opposition to the Irish Peace Process have been four-square behind the slaughter in Gaza.

Eoghan Harris, Kevin Myers, Tom Carew, Ruth Dudley Edwards, please take a bow.

A short report on the role they played in support of the IDF – Israeli Defence Forces – is in order. Here is what they said and how it relates to their Irish politics. read full story / add a comment

Shannonwatch.org, a website set up in December 2008 to document US military traffic and rendition flights through Shannon Airport has become the victim of organised international attacks. The attacks which started on January 8th are being repeated, and efforts to keep the website live are currently proving difficult. The website managers are determined that they will not be silenced however, and will continue in one form or another to publish information on military and suspect CIA flights through Shannon. read full story / add a comment
