THURSDAY 20 MARCH
Local Anti- War group Galway Alliance Against War will mark the 5th anniversary of the start of the Iraq war by holding a minute's silence (at 12 noon) in memory of more than one million people who have died in Iraq as a result of the USUK invasion and occupation, and to highlight that more than  1 million US troops have passed through Shannon airport!.
 
We urge all anti-war activists to remember these deaths by holding this silence where-ever they may be at the time.
 
The group is to organise a human chain in the main thoroughfair of Galway, assembling at 11.45am at the Wildes Statue, top of Shop St., Galway City.
 
We will also send a letter to Bertie Aherne calling for the CIA planes to be inspected at irish airports, following the details of the recently released Amnesty report.
