Shannon Airport Vigil

Shannon Vigil

Sunday, 13 May, 2012. 14:00 - 15:00

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.
