Adbusters Issues New Call to Action: Occupy Chicago for G8/NATO Summit
The Occupy Wall Street movement traces its origin to a call to action in the Vancouver-based magazine Adbusters.
Hey you redeemers, rebels and radicals out there,
Against the backdrop of a global uprising that is simmering in dozens of countries and thousands of cities and towns, the G8 and NATO will hold a rare simultaneous summit in Chicago this May. The world’s military and political elites, heads of state, 7,500 officials from 80 nations, and more than 2,500 journalists will be there.
And so will we.
On May 1, 50,000 people from all over the world will flock to Chicago, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and #OCCUPYCHICAGO for a month. With a bit of luck, we’ll pull off the biggest multinational occupation of a summit meeting the world has ever seen.

Regular monthly vigil to demonstrate against the US military use of Shannon Airport, and against the failure of the authorities to deal with its use in CIA renditions
Meet at small roundabout before airport entrance.
While the government moves Shannon Airport from the Dublin Airport Authority to a new semi-state body, it remains very silent about the constant movement of war planes through the airport. When they talk about passenger numbers they never refer to the quarter of a million armed foreign troops that are taken through each year. And when they talk about executive jet business and US pre-clearance, they never refer to the fact that many of these executive jets have been operating as rendition planes - in other words, their business is kidnapping and torture.
