GALWAY ALLIANCE AGAINST WAR (GAAW) PROTEST OUTSIDE GOVERNMENT TD HOME IN GALWAY
In response to the raid by the Gardai Special Branch on the home of GAAW member & spokesperson, Niall Farrell, on Thursday last, Galway’s local peace group intends to protest outside the homes of government TDs in Galway beginning tomorrow, Sund...ay. During the raid on Mr Farrell’s home 3 computers were seized, one of which is urgently needed by Dr Farrell - Mr Farrell’s wife - for her work.
Mr Farrell told the media that the raid on his home was “deeply political”:
“We would remind people in Galway, city and county, that although the Gardai are under-resourced valuable police time is wasted on harassment of political opponents of the government.
vigil protest against US military use of Shannon Airport & failure to investigate & end rendition flights.
Regular vigil to protest against the US military use of Shannon Airport and the failure to investigate and end rendition flights.
The vigil will take place from 2pm to 3pm on Sunday 10th June at the usual place - just before the airport entrance (gather at the small roundabout).
The US military continue to use Shannon Airport to move their troops to and from the failed occupation of Afghanistan. Ireland still supports the most militarized nation on earth, the US, and Shannon ferries weapons and troops (maybe even killer drones) to its warzones. If another war - like an ill conceived invasion of Iran - were to take place, Shannon and Ireland would almost certainly be involved. We need to continue our protests and to ensure this does not happen.
